About Joeson Bramlett
In today's world, people complain about kids being "attached to their machines". Between video game consoles and smart phones, kid's rarely play outside anymore. For some children, they have no choice but to be attached to machines. Joeson Bramlett wishes he didn't have to be connected all of the time, but he has Metachromatic Leukodystrophy. This rare disease has kept him in the hospital undergoing treatments for the past year. While there is no cure, there are treatments that can help him have a better quality of life and keep him stronger for longer.
Joeson keeps upbeat while in the hospital, he watches zombie movies, plays on his Xbox, and even flirts with the nurses. But he just wants to be a normal kid. His parents, Tammy and Shawn, have had to uproot their lives to take care of him. It's costly and, while Tammy has a job with the department of corrections, the piling medical bills and time off from work are adding up.
You can help. The family has asked for assistance from the Children’s Organ Transplant Association. We are trying to raise $50,000 for COTA in honor of Joeson B to assist with transplant-related expenses. Joeson needs a life saving bone marrow transplant which will let him have a more normal life. Play outside with his friends, ride a bike, and yeah...he'll probably even play some Xbox, but he wont have to miss out on his childhood by spending his life in the hospital. Every donation helps. We also understand that not everyone has the money to donate right now, but please share this link on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media you are a part of. Every dollar and every share gets us closer to raising the funds to help make a miracle for Joeson.
Metachromatic Leukodystrophy otherwise known as MLD. MLD is a genetic disorder that affects nerves, muscles, other organs, and behavior. It slowly gets worse over time. The doctors at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, have recommended a bone marrow transplant in order to prolong his life. An estimated $50,000 is being raised by Rossville volunteers. Volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising activities that will help with transplant-related expenses.
