Brady is a happy child who sees everyone he meets as his friend. “He’s an amazing boy,” says his mom, Cathrine. “He’s smart, patient, sweet, funny. He lights up for people and draws them in. He is loved beyond measure.”
Brady sees a wide range of specialists at St. Luke’s Children’s who work in coordination to provide the best care for his complex needs. He’s had dozens of surgeries, beginning with surgery to remove a brain tumor when he was just 14 months old followed by a massive stroke. For more than six years he’s been under the care of specialists in pediatric cancer, neurosurgery, gastroenterology, pulmonology, rehabilitation, ophthalmology, orthopedics, and ear, nose and throat.
It hasn’t been easy for Brady and his family, and it’s a miracle he’s even alive, his mother says. “We got through it with God, support from our family and friends, and the St. Luke’s team. Everyone has been so compassionate and kind.”
