Brayden is the son of Fred and Sierra Fitzpatrick.  He was born on April 30, 2014, two months premature and his intestines were not fully grown. He has spent a fair amount of his life at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor and Boston Children’s Hospital and has undergone several surgeries. Brayden will be having another extensive surgery soon.

The donations collected at the benefit supper and auction will help his parents to be able to stay with their son until he heals from the surgery. Cost is by donation.
