Family raises money for Brayden's medical expenses

Brayden Altmann, the three year old recovering from a horrible lawn mower accident remains at Niswonger Children's Hospital.

Brayden lost his right leg on Mother's day. Saturday, family and friends held a raffle at Trail Days in Damascus to help cover medical and living expenses for Brayden's mom.

All tickets were $5 and all donations go directly back to support the family.

If you parked in the lot near the raffle tent, all those contributions also went back to the family's fund.

The family says Brayden's great spirit is what keeps them going.

"Everything will go towards Brayden 100%. We got businesses from Damascus and Abingdon to donate gift certificates, gift cards, and items from their stores," says Jessica Bebber, Brayden's family member. "And our basket is worth over $500. If your ticket gets drawn, you win it all."

News 5 checked with Brayden's uncle, John Bebber Saturday morning. He tell us his nephew is doing really well. Brayden got to play with his cousins last night at the hospital.

Brayden is expected to have a skin graft on his leg in the next few days but his doctors want to see more healing from him first.

The family is thankful for all the love and support from the community.
