Community pulling together for boy in need of heart transplant

April 9, 2014

A local young boy — Brayden Wyant — is in need of a transplant, and family members and friends are coming together to help his cause this Saturday. Pictured here are (from left) firemen Orrie Manners and Derek Toven; Brayden’s mother, Sarah Anderson (holding Brayden); his father Kevin Wyant; Bonnie Byerly (in pizza costume) and fireman Don Byerly.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — As a parent, one often feels helpless when a child is ill, but to be the parent of a child who is terminally ill or — in the case of one little boy — in need of a heart transplant, it is not only frustrating but also heart-wrenching.

However, as parents, we learn that when our children are faced with adversity, we must be strong, and for 5-year-old Brayden Wyant strength is a character trait both he and his parents must continue to display.

For Brayden's story, and to see how you can help, see Thursday's print edition of The Spirit.
