Sunday, June 27, 2010

Tonight on Channel 13 either at the 5pm or 10pm news story they are airing story-the update story:) This is Angie Bradley's mom and Chris and I are going to start trying to help Melissa keep this page updated. Not sure how this will go, but we will try. Melissa is still the main one who will do this...so thank you to Melissa! So we are way pumped to have the oppurtunity give to us to do a follow up story on Bradley! So much progress has been made! He is eating and drinking. His speech is still limited, but his is trying so hard. The left side of his face is still paralyzed. Hoping in time that comes back but for now he is still our precious little boy and always will be. This next week we start a new adventure in Indiana. We are meeting w/ the doctors to start the proton therapy. He will have 4 markers placed during a surgery on Thursday. Then we will head home for a few weeks. From there we will return to Indiana for 7 weeks of Proton Therapy. We would like to thank all of you for your time and support of us...for the million of prayers said. Without all of you following and doing what you are doing we wouldn't be where we are at today. Hope you all are having a great weekend and take care.

Surgery update

Bradley had surgery last night and the doctors did better then they expected!! They got 90% of the remaining tumor which leaves only 1.5 centimeters of tumor! This was the goal the doctor's were striving towards as a tumor that small increases the chances of the next steps success rate.

An MRI is being done this morning and the results will be sent to Indiana to see if Bradley is a candidate for a new therapy called Proton Therapy. This is the best therapy out there for his type of tumor. If he isn't a candidate for this, then radiation will be done to destroy the rest of the tumor. Please join us in praying for Bradley to be approved for Proton therapy.

Thank you for all of the prayers yesterday. This is a big step but not the last so please, PLEASE, continue to pray for little Bradley.

Extra Prayers Needed

Tomorrow, Bradley goes in for another MRI and surgery. Please say some extra prayers for him and the Allen family. This is a very important surgery that needs to go well. The doctors are trying to remove as much of Bradley's remaining tumor as possible.
If you have a Bradley's Buddies T-shirt or a Prayers for Bradley bracelet, please wear them tomorrow in support of the family, to remind yourself to pray as often as you can and to spread his story.

Thank you all for your continued support and prayers.
