Hi my name is Brayden! I was diagnosed with A-T when I was only 10 months old after my doctors spent months trying to figure out why my immune system wasn’t working properly. I am a busy 3 year old (soon to be 4) and on my way to school in the fall. I love to ride my bike with my big brother Jacob (6) and my big sister Taya (19). I love to be outside and can spend hours on my play structure and making up games in my tree house. I have a wonderful imagination and love to eat!

A-T is a devastating disease that will steal my ability to walk, my speech, and, in time, my life. This disease has no known cure and while I am still very young, every minute counts. Please consider giving a minimum of $10 a month that will help fund important research to fight A-T. My Mommy and Daddy appreciate your support more than you’ll ever know. Thank you for fighting for me!


We’re asking you to be part of our Giving Circle by donating $10 or more a month using the donation form below. Your monthly gift will help maintain a constant means of support for research funding. The advancements we have made and are making can be attributed to the families and friends like you who generously support our mission to find life-improving therapies and a cure for A-T. Every dollar raised is a dollar filled with hope.

Our Giving Circle donors will receive:

  • A listing here on our Giving Circle webpage
  • Special updates
  • A yearly tax receipt
  • The satisfaction of knowing that your dollars are hard at work


Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
