Gold Ribbon Hero Braiden S

“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Braiden was diagnosed with AML leukemia in 7/16/2012. He was 7 years old when he was diagnosed and it literally turned our world upside down. We went from having a seemingly healthy child one day to having a child life flighted to Denver the next. He missed most of his second grade year of school and underwent 5 months of chemotherapy, countless blood and platelet transfusions, 2 flight for life trips to the hospital, a four day stay in ICU due to one of several broviac infections and no immunity, and many days separated from his brothers and his Dad! Braiden is 11 now and in remission since 11/16/2012! We have a little over a year to go before we hear the beautiful words we’ve been so desperately waiting for “Cancer Free”!!! The picture I’ve shared is of my hero today!” – Misty S
