BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Thursday will be one year since local boy Brayden Eidenshink died following a heart transplant.

Brayden captured hearts through his Facebook page "Brayden's Brave Heart" and his journey to find a match.

At just 11 days old, Brayden had his first of many heart surgeries. He also spent nearly four and a half years on the transplant list.

Thousands watched as Brayden celebrated finally finding a match. He went into surgery for the transplant on October 10, 2018, but soon had complications and eventually passed away on Nov. 7, 2018.

Now, a year after his death, a special event will be held to raise money for the Nobody Fights Alone Foundation which was inspired by Brayden and is dedicated to support and impact the lives of families affected by sudden pediatric emergencies.

This Thursday, during the 'Burgers for Brayden' event, you can drive through Houchin Blood Bank on Bolthouse Drive to grab a burger lunch for $10. The proceeds benefit the Nobody Fights Alone Foundation. Food will be served from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. If you'd like to order 5 or more lunches, you're asked to pre-order by texting 661-809-8615.
