JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - The community continues to come together for a 3-year-old boy who was seriously injured after he was run over by a lawn mower and lost his right leg.
Volunteers gathered at the Titlemax in Bristol, Va. for a car wash to raise money for Brayden Altmann and his family.
Members of ETSU's Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter worked alongside Wellmont doctors, and Titlemax employees.
They sold baked goods and t-shirts that say, "Pray for Bray."
"I've never met a more grateful family for the help, which goes to show when someone's that grateful for help, they really do need it," said Joshua Shepard, the SVA president at ETSU.
Brayden had his third surgery this week, this time for a skin graft. His grandmother told us that Brayden is doing well. Doctors hope to have Brayden's bandages off this weekend and on his way home on Monday.
