Bradley was born 11 years ago with a malformed right ear and absence of the right auditory canal. He has had several surgeries over the years and has undergone many hearing evaluations and therapies. A simple ear infection in the ‘normal ear’ is cause for great alarm, as his hearing could be at significant risk. In addition, Bradley has developed asthma in the last few years. He became quite fearful of the doctor’s offices and of blood draws and shots, but always maintained a happy disposition and positive attitude. Throughout the years, Bradley and his family have always faithfully attended all of his appointments. Recently, he has also struggled with being overweight. He is currently working hard in a karate class and has progressed to a Green Belt in just 10 months!
