Our mission is to raise funding and awareness so that we may help find a way to Build a Bridge over this devastating disease.
Young men with Duchenne typically live into their late teens. Today there is no cure, and very minimal treatment but that can change and has been changing greatly over the past 4 years.
"One would not know by looking at his smile that his muscles are wasting away inside of him"
Our Son, Braedan 11 years old
Braedans Bridge, a non profit 501(c) (3) ogranization was started by Braedan's parent's Scott and Tammy Henegar to help raise funding and awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. In March 2011, we received news that our son was diagnosed with duchenne. Like many parents would feel, our world felt like it crumbled beneath us. We decided we would not give up our HOPE and FAITH and push forth in whatever we had to do to make his life an amazing one. Our endeavor in life, not only to make our children happy but we are helping to find a drug that will alter the path way of this disease so that our son and many of other boys with this disease will live a long happy and healthy life. The drugs to alter this are out there, and they are just within reach but yet so far away for us families that live with this. "It is probably the hardest thing any parent can go through, watching their child slowly waste away and not being able to stop it." says The Henegar Family. We will not stand by and not TRY to do something about this. We will continue to raise funding and awareness as long as duchenne continues to make its presence in the world. We will not give up our
HOPE and FAITH.
Our hearts weigh heavy as it is still so hard to understand that you are gone...
until we meet again.
Travis T Dogg Coll fought his battle with Duchenne until his lord and savior called him home February 2015. Travis was a Godly Man that was always sharing his faith. Travis and his parents were active in helping us make our ALL IN FOR DUCHENNE the success it is today. We will continue to keep fighting and raising funds for research so that we can find a way to alter this muscle monster.
RIP Travis Coll.
Follow us on a Trip of a Lifetime Braedan's Make A Wish was so graciously granted and we are about to go on an adventure like no other.
Braedan's Make a Wish was to go to South Africa and see the animals in their habitat. on a safari. Braedan enjoys watching animals and not all of them are animals that he would choose to hunt. He does understand however the importance of God's Renewable resources. Here are a couple pictures from the trip. It was simply incredible!!!
With your help, we can fight this disease.
With your Help
