Friday January 22nd 2021 was a normal Friday evening at our home. We had just got back from the skating rink. My 11 year old son Brayden went into our room to play on his PS4 with his friend online. A little while later he came out complaining of a sudden bad headache. Within seconds his life changed! He started to sweat like I have never seen, his eyes were looking very glossy and then he asked “Mommy am I going to be ok?” I responded “yes of course everything is going to be ok”, we called 911. He then couldn’t talk and only hear my husband asking him if he hears us lift up a finger which he did 3 times, a
few seconds after he went into a coma. The ambulance and first responders arrived and transferred him to the hospital. He was sent for a scan and we were told that our son was very sick and needed a brain operation to release the pressure in his brain. Four hours later after a successful operation, our neurosurgeon told us Brayden had an AVM in his cerebellum that ruptured. An AVM is an Arteriovenous Malformation. It's rare and he was born with it. He never had any signs or symptoms!

Once he was in the ICU we prayed that our little warrior would be ok. All we wanted to see was his beautiful blue eyes open again one more time so we knew he was ok. Unfortunately 4 days later he went into cardiac arrest due to many factors from the initial bleed, his pressures weren’t stable enough. There was nothing more that could be done to save our son. We were so devastated and are living a parent’s worst nightmare.

My family and I want to help others to be aware of this silent killer. We have established #TEAMBRAYDEN to raise awareness and funds for vascular research so no other family has to lose a loved one without warning. Please join us. AVM - it’s only rare until it happens to you!


Sincerely,
Jennifer, Kevin, Brianna, Dylan and Shane xxxxxx

*Brayden has helped others by donating his organs and tissues to let others continue living life. A little boy
with the biggest, golden heart for everyone Our Hero forever and always xx

My morning routine, reading news, often too sad but this morning was somehow different. Attentive to every word till the end, your story, your son, and your connection with the Montreal neuro, who accepted to share his emotions, touched me deeply, at many levels. Mes sympathies à toute la famille, prenez soin les uns des autres. Cordialement, Marie Claude

Thank you for sharing Brayden's story. I too lost a son to AVM, shortly after he was born 12 years ago. I am sorry you've joined our "club" but I appreciate your bravery in raising awareness and research funds. I hope the work brings a sense of purpose and peace to your family.

I just read the CBC story about your tragic loss, and the work done by Dr Weil. I have known Alexander all his life, and he is remarkable. As a grandfather, I cannot imagine your hardship. Bon courage and good luck with the golf tournament.
