This Beautiful Little Boy is Celebrating his “Re-Birthday”


Jacksonville, Florida

Little Braxston is only two-years-old. He recently received a bone marrow transplant to treat neuroblastoma, a cancer that develops from immature nerve cells.

Transplant recipients celebrate a second “birthday” after their bone marrow transplant. It signifies another beginning!

We were happy to see the photos and that adorable smile.

Once a child is diagnosed with cancer, it can be a difficult journey. His family had to travel 70 miles to receive treatment. This is an added expense that can’t be planned for. During treatment, every day off work is a day unpaid.

The Icla Cares support program provided financial assistance for transportation and groceries on his journey to receive a transplant.

His mom Amber expressed tremendous gratitude from their family:

“The fund helped us a lot. It allowed us to make sure we had transportation to and from Braxston’s appointments [to receive his bone marrow transplant]. It also helped us get his favorite snacks for transplant! Which he loved. It made him feel more like he was at home knowing he had comfort food.” -Amber Pack

Braxston is scheduled to receive radiation and 6-months of immunotherapy. We wish him a full recovery and many more birthdays with his family.

You can assist patients like Braxston on their journey to receive a bone marrow transplant.

Please donate today. Together we will make a difference for more patients and their families.
