About Me

My name is Braden and I have Ataxia-Telangiectasia or A-T. It's a rare genetic disease that is both progressive and terminal. It's like having multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and cancer all in one. I'm just like every other kid who wants to run and play, but my body gets really tired really fast. I love to go to the zoo, but I can only walk for a little while before I need to ride. My mind wants to go, go, go, but my body won't let me.

I love trains, coloring, and playing with my little sister. My days are just like normal kids, but I have to work a lot harder to do some of the same things they get to do. I have a hard time swallowing foods, and I sometimes drool. That's ok, because my family reminds me to swallow and wipes my chin. I love life, and I don't let such things get me down.

I may not have as long a life as others, but my family makes each day as fun and special as possible.
