Frozen, Gophers, Wild…oh my!

It’s been a busy few weeks since our last post. As I type this we are currently in the Emergency Department @ Masonic as Brax has been a little off following treatment last week. She feels OK but has been tired and running a little higher temp than normal (99’s), but today it jumped to 100.6 and they said we should come in for an evaluation. Everything is checking out good. They did a urine sample and that was good, flu swab and that was good and bloodwork which is all coming back good too. So we are assuming she’s fighting a little bug or some of the residual effects of the meds she’s currently on. Either way, they are sending her home and no overnight stay with her ANC being ok.

In ED @ Masonic getting the full work-up.
Holy wires Braxman!

Now for the latest happenings…..

Tuesday, the 6th, Brax’s good buddy Megan lined up a private viewing of Frozen 2 with the Gopher Football Team and PJ & Heather. We all joined and had a blast. Thanks for the invite Megan!

Then on the following Monday, Brax joined the Women’s Gymnastics Team at practice and hung out. Thanks for the invite Coach Hansen! Always a good time hanging out with the girls!

Full Team + Brax!

Then this past week Brax attended her first Wild game with very special friend Michael. They had great seats on the glass and then Michael hooked her up with post game locker room passes. She met Dumba, scored Dubnyk’s stick, a game puck, and the Wild won big in a shutout…great night all around! Thanks MJ!

This week is another busy week with some exciting events/activities coming. Check back at the end of week for all the updates!

Also, TB1F Champions Cup is off to a great start. There are only a few tickets and 10 horses left. It’s shaping up to be an exciting evening and a very “feel good” event. We have had a lot of people step up to make this event very special. Thanks to all of them!

First Major Event Planned

It’s been a bit since we have posted on Brax’s actual status, and going forward at this point, assume No News, is Good News! We are so thankful Brax is doing and feeling as well as she is. We officially hit our 1-year anniversary of diagnosis on January 29th. We were in the hospital for Super Bowl Sunday last year and Brax had just started chemo and felt crappy – it was one of her worst days.

Below is a flashback to the video Grace & Temple sent Brax 1 year ago. She has continued to kick cancer’s butt and has 16 months left. She officially rejoined her team at TCT today which was huge! She will be doing 1 day a week on team with the plan to slowly transition back to full time. Slowly putting things back into place and it’s awesome! She planning to go back to school after spring break.

Last Saturday, Brax was invited to be a Jr. Captain for the U of M Women’s Gymnastics home opener. It was a great experience and a great meet!

And for the big news, we are holding our first major fundraising event in April. The event is scheduled and has been in the works for awhile now.

TB1F Champions Cup will be held Friday, April 24 at the North House in the North Loop in Minneapolis. All proceeds will help Brax in supporting her mission at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital of helping to provide immediate support and encouragement to patients and families.

Tickets will go on sale this Wednesday, February 5th at 11AM.

Please visit to purchase tickets, a horse, or sponsorship to the event. It’s shaping up to be a fun event and is already getting a lot of positive feedback. UNRL has committed to sponsoring the Winner’s Circle and Jester Concepts is doing the catering. Jester Concepts is known for their restaurants which include Parlour Bar, Borough, PS Steak, Monello & Constantine.
