Today could be the day that makes growing up a little less painful for a seven-year-old Maple Ridge boy CKNW told you about last month.
Brayden Grozdanich and his mom woke up this morning in New Jersey for a cerebral palsy procedure that’s only available in that state.
The family hopes this is the trick to keep him moving pain-free as his muscles grow.
A month ago, this seemed like a far off dream, but the $20,000 surgery bill, and many other costs, are covered thanks to a lemonade stand that Brayden’s buddy, Quinn Callander, 7, started in early July.
“We finished the fundraising campaign, and Quinn raised around $61,487, I think it was,” says Quinn’s mother Heather Roney.
