"TEAM BRADLEY participated in the 16th Annual dash for organ and tissue donor awareness organised by GIFT-OF-LIFE in Philadelphia. We participated in memory of our son, grandson and friend, BRADLEY.
In November 2009, Bradley had been a recipient of a heart and double lungs. He had to be re-transplanted for double lungs in January 2010. Bradley made it out of hospital in June 2010 and was doing so well until December 2010 when he went into heart failure. Bradley was a fighter and he fought it out till January 31st this year, when he succumbed to multiple organ failure. When he passed, he donated his corneas, giving sight to 2 people.
In his four and a half years with us, Bradley taught us what it meant to be brave, courageous and to love. He was a trooper, a fighter and never let his medical limitations affect him. He was strong, active, fun- loving, and had a great sense of humour.
We treasure the times we had with Bradley and know it was because he had a second and a third chance! We walked in the spirit of Bradley, believing that everyone deserves second and third chances! Organ donors save lives!
Our t-shirts were great! We were 3rd in the team t-shirt contest.
We love our t-shirt and are big fans of CustomInk !! Great Customer service too. We are already thinking up our design for next year!
