Welcome to Brady's Page
At 5 months old, Brady’s parents noticed unusual spots on his body. He was seen by a dermatologist who diagnosed the little boy with Type 1 Neurofibromatosis – a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumours can develop anywhere in the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and nerves. Brady now has more than 100 tumours in his body including a plexiform neurofibroma that cannot be removed from his spine and is so large it has caused Brady’s spine to drastically bend.
Brady has now had three spinal surgeries to implant and lengthen rods in his back to keep his spine straighter. He will continue to visit the Children’s Hospital- HSC Winnipeg as his tumor growths require continued monitoring and his spinal rods need to be adjusted as he grows.
Despite the rods in his back and the major surgeries he has had, Brady is perseverant and doesn’t let anything stand in his way. He plays hockey, baseball, and participates in an annual neurofibromatosis run. His perseverance is the trait that helped Brady become the 2020 Champion Child for Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
