BRAEDON SNOWDEN [The Miracle Baby] Braedon Snowden has been the motivation from the start as his battle with Wilms Tumor kidney cancer started on January 2, 2014. Braedon was born April 15, 2013, as his parents Chris & Chacristy awaited patiently on his arrival he was immediately air lifted to the Womens Hospital on fannin in Houston, Tx.
Braedon stayed there nearly 2 months and was discharged with follow up appointments, Braedon weight started to decline over the months but his stomach area kept increasing. After several appointments with his GI specialist and no answers we were able to get help from a local doctor in Stafford, TX. Brenda Mallet was the doctor who noticed something just didn't look right with Braedon so a cat scan was set up at Herman Memorial Hospital in the medical center, the results were in and wow was the first reaction as we found out Braedon had 9 tumors sitting on his kidneys, 5 on the left side and 4 on the right.
Braedon has lost his entire left kidney as a result and over 75% of his right, as of today Braedon has a partial right kidney with 2 tumors sitting side by side of each other on his partial kidney. The doctors gave him a few months to live starting around December 2017, hospice talked to us and the doctors pretty much gave up as they have stated he is no longer qualified for any future chemo treatments, radiation, or kidney transplants, but as parents we are fighting and we are searching for people to help join us in this battle to save his life as well as others who are in dying need of some good people just to do a few good deeds.
Being in the medical center has been a eye opener in more ways than one because even though are pain may be tough I also pass through the streets in Houston and see kids sleeping under bridges and parents doing all they can to survive, so it's time now to hit the Reset Button not just for Braedon but for everyone that is fighting the good fight from cancer to just everyday survival.
