Cards for Braden

This is Braden ...


Braden Hofen was diagnosed with Stage IV, high risk neuroblastoma on December 28, 2007 at the age of 3. Braden was given a 30% chance for survival at that time. He went through six high dose rounds of chemotherapy, an autologous bone marrow transplant, radiation therapy, and follow up therapies. Braden was declared to be in remission but merely a few months later, and only a few weeks from his fifth birthday, his cancer relapsed. Braden now has only a 10% chance for survival. Braden is undergoing medical treatments both at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri and at the Children's Hopsital of Philadelphia. Braden loves animals, basketball, playing outside, water fountains, and the beautiful seasonal Christmas lights!  Braden and his family appreciate all of your thoughts, prayers, and hopes for a miracle!

The family includes:

  • Braden, age 6.
  • Brother - Zach, age 7.
  • Mom - Deliece.
  • Dad - Brian.
