Bradyn Barone, at 22 years old was diagnosed with rare and aggressive form of cancer known as T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on 8/5/22 at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. Bradyn was hospitalized for a month and is now being treated as an outpatient where he is receiving ongoing chemotherapy treatments, we are now on week 10. Bradyn will continue chemo until he is able to get a bone marrow transplant that is currently planned for December, the search for a donor match actively continues. Due to his compromised immune system and physical state, daily activities are very limited. His mother, his primary caregiver, has relocated to Jacksonville with Bradyn for the anticipated 8-month journey.
Bradyn started playing hockey at age 7, and his love for the game would take him around the country from Connecticut to California playing junior hockey. The hockey community has been very supportive during these trying times and we are forever grateful. We have been asked by many what they can do to help Bradyn during his fight with Leukemia.
If you are unable to attend the event or would like to make an additional Donation, the family is humbly accepting them to help Bradyn with his medical and living expenses through the designated 501C(3) below.
All that Bradyn wants now is to go back to his old life, his job, playing hockey, golf, his dog and his friends and family. You can follow his journey at https://www.facebook.com/groups/bradynsbattle
