Braiden Norton is an 8 year old boy with a Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma, a brainstem tumor that he has had since he was a year old. A JPA (Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma) develops from certain star-shaped brain cells called astrocytes. Astrocytes and similar cells form tissue that surrounds and protects other nerve cells found within the brain and spinal cord. A JPA that sits on the brainstem causes symptoms resulting from increased pressure on the brain and include headaches, nausea, vomiting, balance problems and vision abnormalities. Without the ANP(Antineoplastons) drug, this tumor will continue to grow until it causes more severe symptoms which include seizures, impairment in language function, gradual changes in mood or personality, memory loss and ultimately death.

Braiden's chance of survival is dependent on the timely manner of resuming a treatment that has proven to work and be very safe for him. Time is running out!

Without the ANP (Antineoplastons) drug his health will delcine and irreparable damage will be his outcome. Please help us to save this amazing little boy. No child should be denied the medication that will give them a better chance to live a long, productive and happy life.

      The Burzynsky Clinic has came up with a safe and effective way to combat some of the most horrible and untreatable form's of cancer. Unfortunately the FDA and big pharma see no use in it since they don't own the patents and it doesn't turn the big profit they so desire. So as a result this family's child is in the hands of the FDA. If he dies I would see them as responsible!

      When you met Braiden and spend time with him you see life in a different way. Brighter and Happier. He is AMAZING!!!!!!He has the most out going personality and brightens everyone's day he comes into contact with. Philip is what the definition of a real DAD is, working two jobs and always making time for his son and making sure all his needs are met. They deserve a long life together. NO Politics or Price tags should be placed on this family. Treatment should be ALLOWED!!!!!!
