Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. We will use this site as the sole place to communicate updates about Braedon 's parotid gland tumor and treatment. So far we know that he has a 4.5 centimeter tumor in that gland and the surgery is very risky and can result in partial facial paralysis. He will have a biopsy this week at CCMC.
