Brennan’s Buddies® ©2012
Brennan’s Buddies was envisioned by our family when Brennan was in treatment at Texas Children’s Hospital, in Houston with Stage IV High Risk neuroblastoma. He was diagnosed April 8th 2011. He was 10 months old. Cindy and Blake received lots of support from family and friends, but also from complete strangers. It was great comfort to her hearing from parents that have been down this road. And the amount of people from around the world that heard about Brennan and prayed for his recovery. Also the comfort items that you don't think about when stuck in a hospital room for sometimes weeks at a time. And packages from other foundations and people from everywhere, toys and things for Brennan and his sister at holidays took a lot of stress from the family. Our goal with Brennan’s Buddies is to collect toys and make “care” packages for the kids and families in treatment at Texas Children’s Hospital oncology floor, but we’ve expanded that to send packages to families all over the USA. To let them know that no one fights alone. We had hoped to have Brennan be with us to bring these gifts, but sadly that was not meant to be. Brennan passed away April 25th 2012. So now it’s time to bring Brennan’s Buddies to life and remember our Brennan by helping others.
