Today is Fight Like Brayden Day

Brayden's family is asking the community to come together in honor of Fight Like Brayden Day.

Brayden Eidenshink is a Bakersfield boy who had been on a heart transplant list for close to four and a half years before receiving a heart transplant

Brayden's family is asking the community to wear red in support of his fight. They will also be holding a fundraiser at The Broken Yolk. 15% of today's sales will be donated to Little Wishes in Brayden's name. The Broken Yolk is located at:

  • 7919 East Brundage Lane in East Bakersfield
  • 3300 Buena Vista Road in Southwest Bakersfield

Today is also the last day for the Houchin Community Blood Bank blood drive in honor of Brayden . Donors can donate blood at any one of the two Houchin Donor Centers from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Houchin Donor Centers are located at: 

  • 11515 Bolthouse Drive in Southwest Bakersfield
  • 5901 Truxtun Avenue in Southwest Bakersfield

In the latest update, doctors were able to remove most of a clot that was in Brayden's lungs. At this time, doctors are allowing him to rest so his heart and lungs can recover.
