About Hugs for Brady
After the diagnosis and then loss of their son Brady from leukemia, Sherrie and Michael Wells established Hugs for Brady Foundation. Brady fought bravely, but lost his battle three weeks before his second birthday. Sherrie and Michael decided they wanted to do something not only to honor Brady’s memory, but to help other families going through similar battles to have a resource for help, a reason for hope, and to find a cure. Each day Hugs for Brady provides these very things to countless families as they wage their own war against childhood cancer, and each year strives to do even more than the last. It is Hugs for Brady's mission and greatest hope that someday in the not too distant future, there will be an end to childhood cancer. To learn more visit
