“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: My son Brodie is my hero not just today but everyday. Brodie was diagnosed at the young age of 8 months old. Brodie went through many rounds of chemotherapy. Even on his worst days he was so full of lover and life. Brodie always had a smile on his face even after being messed with all day. He made so many friends in the hospital. We almost had to spend Brodie’s first birthday in the hospital but we were released a few days before. I am so lucky and proud to be able to watch my baby grow into such a great young man. We are so very thankful for everyone we have encountered throughout our hospital experiences they all have left a mark on our lives. Thanks to all of you my son is a soft understanding little boy who loves to help others in need. Brodie will soon be 3 on October 15th and thankfully he has been on watch and the scans have shown the tumors are still there but aren’t sure if they are growing. I am one proud momma.” – Kylie M.
