Brantley’s Story

September 2, 2019
Did you know that 300,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year? We want to change that, so we’re helping to raise money to help find cures during the month of September. We will be sharing true and inspiring stories from children in our community in honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

This is Brantley’s Story:

“If you ever see a child battle cancer, it will change your life forever!” This couldn’t be more true. We are forever grateful for the time we had with Brantley. Our lives are forever changed. We miss him every day, but what he taught us in his few years on Earth some people are never fortunate enough to learn. He taught us to always look for the rainbow after the rain, to smile through the tears, and to live each day as if it were your last. Brantley always had a smile on his face, was always the light of the room when he walked in. We can only hope that his story has touched enough lives to want more people to get involved in finding a cure for childhood cancer. To our family, friends, and community Brantley will forever be OUR HERO!

Brantley could go through a week-long stay of chemo and radiation and walk out of the hospital dancing and singing “we going home, we going home, we going home… Peace out!”

 “If you ever see a child battle cancer, it will change your life forever!”

Now if that doesn’t make you stop and think WOW… then I don’t know what would! His strength, character, attitude, and charisma is something that will never be matched!

“Sometimes real superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles”
