    I have a cousin who really needs all the prayers he can get so I came here to my chicken family for help. He is 29 years old and he had a massive stroke. It has left him paralyzed on his right side. They got him up yesterday and are trying to get him walking. He trys to form words but he is using pen and paper to communicate. They ran test and said there is a mass the size of a ping pong ball on his heart. They say a piece of this mass broke loose and went to his brain causing the stroke. They need to do surgery but say he is too weak and are hoping Mon or Tues he will be strong enough. Please pray for Brandon, the family, and his friends. I have not spent much time with him but I LOVE HIM. Again if you can Please say a prayer for Brandon.

    THANK YOU [​IMG]
