Hey Bay Hill Family! Starting this Friday we will begin our annual holiday toy drive! Please bring an unwrapped toy to the office anytime between November 23rd-December 12th. #WishUponAToy #EQR

Today for the first time ever, we sent a package by mail to the Bay Area for a very special 5 yr old boy named Braxton. Usually we hand deliver the packages to children across Socal but Braxtons story touched our hearts and we knew we wanted to send him some joy.
Braxton has a life threatening blood disorder called “HLH XLP-2”. There have been fewer than 100 cases reported nationwide. The only treatment for this condition is intense chemotherapy along with a Bone Marrow Transplant. This is an extremely rare condition and only about 14 transplants have ever been performed.
Yesterday he began his 3 month hospital stay. He will have surgery to put in his central line and intense chemo will begin Thursday with a bone marrow transplant later this month. After that he will have to remain in insolation at the hospital for an additional 2 months. His mom will be in isolation with him the whole time. During this isolation period the only people allowed in the room will be his mom and dad.

Knowing that he was going to be away from his siblings and friends for such an extended period, we wanted to make sure he would have plenty of things to keep him busy. Braxton is a super hero loving, Pokémon obsessed little boy, so naturally we made him a box fit for a super hero. Keep on fighting Braxton! “You are much stronger than you think you are. Trust me” –Superman
