Team Bray

Leaping Livers 2020

Brayden's story

From a healthy lively little boy, to one morning waking up with no other symptoms other than yellow with jaundice. Within 2 weeks he had an Fulminant liver failure and bone marrow failure (Aplastic Anaemia). This was all the result of an unknown virus that he had picked up at some time.

Brayden was very fortunate within 30-hrs receiving a donor liver where he underwent a 15-hr lifesaving surgery called an Apolt ( Auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation.) This surgery has only been successfully performed on one other patient in Australia by these same two surgeons. We are eternally grateful to our organ donor and their family for this gift of life. We will also always be forever grateful for the medical teams including the Surgeons headed up by Dr Albert Shun, Dr Gordon Thomas, Gastro Drs and Clancy Ward Nurses of the Westmead Children’s Hospital. They not only saved Bray but helped us all cope thru a life changing ordeal.

As of today 11 months post liver transplant , these amazing surgeons have successfully removed the donor liver. Bray's own liver is in pristine shape as well as his donor liver which is being used for research. Bray has recovered extremely well and is no longer on immunosuppressants.

Please help us by sponsoring Bray in support for the Leaping Livers fundraiser.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

The Liver Transplant Unit at The Children's Hospital at Westmead relies on the generosity of supporters to be able to help those in need. Funds raised through events like Leaping Livers are crucial in enabling them to continue their work.

We believe it's important to raise awareness of childhood liver disease and liver transplantation. Please support us as we challenge ourselves to complete the 9km circuit at Leaping Livers 2020!
