"Never give up. You have three choices when you’re diagnosed. Give in. Give up. Or you can just keep going."
At the young age of seven, Brandon was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in his leg, a rare bone cancer that targets children. Amputation is common with Ewing’s sarcoma which was Brandon's biggest fear. Insisting a on a childhood filled with baseball games and bike rides with his brother, amputation was not an option. It was with this strength and vision that Brandon, his family, and medical team decided to perform a procedure that had only been done in one other case in the country. The medical team at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, ME removed the top 9 inches of his immature thighbone and implanted an innovative, spring-loaded metal rod. [Learn More Here]
For the past ten years Brandon has continued living a life filled with adventure, passion, and as most teenagers might, sports! Over these years, Brandon's outgoing personality has lead him to build some of his strongest relationships with patients and caregivers. Unfortunately, some of these friends have lost their battle and are no longer with us. In 2018, Brandon hopes to use this Scholarship Fund to continue supporting those impacted by cancer in the Bangor area.
