A Little About Brandon M.
Brandon M. is an Army Veteran and a midnight Police Officer for our local department. Him and his wife, April, have four children: Chloe, Carlie, Isaiah and Lincoln. His youngest child, Lincoln, is currently recovering from being diagnosed with A.D.E.M (an autoimmune disease marked by a sudden widespread attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord). Lincoln is doing a lot better and is in physical therapy. However, because of the many hospital visits, the family could use a little extra help with presents this year.
Giving A Christmas Miracle
We were very grateful to be able to help this family for Christmas this year. After seeing their children’s excitement, it brought pure joy to our hearts knowing how appreciative the family was for this Christmas surprise. As fellow officers were surrounding the family, our local hero expressed his gratitude for his peers, Homes for Heroes® and the support from the community. It was well deserved.
