Welcome to Braden's CHOC Celebration Personal Page!

We are excited to be participating in CHOC Walk's 30th anniversary event - CHOC Adventure in the Park presented by the Disneyland® Resort to raise funds for CHOC! As we celebrate Braden's 11th birthday we could not think of a better way but to help raise money for an organization that is so near and dear to our family.

There are so many children who count on CHOC to help them get better in their time of need. This is true for our family for both Rilynn and Braden. We have experienced so many areas of CHOC-NICU, PICU, ER, Radiology, Neurology and one thing remains consistent-compassionate care. Most recently, Braden needed a MRI (a 2-hour MRI) and he told the doctor he did not want to be put to sleep for the exam. We later found out that Braden could watch a movie during his MRI through virtual reality glasses-the doctor also ordered child life to be there who helped to  guide him through the entire process and when he was done they were waiting with a gift. He did not move at all and we were able to accomplish this annual exam for the first time without anesthesia. It is technology and programs like this that make what could be a stressful situation for the child and family a fun one.   

As you know I also work at CHOC and I see how how many lives are helped daily but today is about celebrating Braden's health, another birthday and being a grateful parent/family.
