Bria and I want to thank everyone for your prayers, positive thoughts, and encouragement during this very difficult time. Claudia, Bria and I are so lucky and blessed to have every one of you in our lives lifting us up. We have decided to create a site to help update our amazing family and friends with Claudia’s process during this long journey. This way people can come here for medical and general updates and information pertaining to all of Claudia’s progress. Please keep texting and calling your support, strength and words of encouragement as we know we will need it during this process and are absolutely grateful when you do send your thoughtful words and thoughts. We are also hoping to use this as a journal to share with Claudia during her recovery, so that when she is ready she can see and process everything she went through and your kind words of encouragement.  We again are grateful to have you all in our lives and appreciate everyone’s support and words of hope and encouragement. We are so fortunate to have so many wonderful people in our lives. 

Unfortunately at this moment there are no visitors allowed other than immediate family. Please don’t send any flowers, etc. to the hospital. However, you can send cards to the hospital for us to read to Claudia and decorate her room with.

I know we are all struggling to think of ways to help and support BB&C at this time. If you are looking for ways to help some of Claudia’s friends have set up a meal train ( so B&B don’t have to worry about cooking and we don’t have to worry if they are eating. If you are not able to participate in the food train, but are looking for a way to help, you can also make a donation here ( to help with meals, cleaning, cost of parking, etc. Please don’t stop sending Bria and Brandon all the love and support via text and calls. Your strength and prayers mean so much to them and are lifting them up during this difficult time. 
Big hugs and lots of love to you all,
