A story that has reached people around the country, a local boy named Brayden had been on a heart transplant list for over four years.

Now, that wait for a heart and new lease on life is now over as Brayden recovers from receiving a brand new heart.

Brayden's mother said they were notified of a match on Tuesday evening, saying the surgery could last up to 12-16 hours. Video of Brayden being wheeled into surgery was posted on Facebook Live Wednesday afternoon.

Brayden has garnered support from the community through a Facebook page called "Brayden's Brave Heart." You can learn more about Brayden's journey here.
