“My sports dream is to go to a University of Georgia football game!”
16-year-old Brady Duck’s love for the University of Georgia football is wholly apparent, as he could talk about the Georgia Dawgs for hours! Brady lives with a rare, genetic condition called “Maple Syrup Urine Disease” (MSUD), which triggers many side effects such as lethargy, poor appetite, and weight loss. It is a disease that, when left untreated, can cause the liver to become abnormally large and may even become fatal. Thankfully, Brady had a liver transplant in November 2019 so the long road to recovery has begun but he still faces hurdles which include daily medications, doctor visits, and being mindful of signs of infection or rejection.
Brady’s condition has affected his cognitive abilities and he does not fully understand the physical limitations of being a liver transplant recipient. He dreams of becoming a football player and we want to encourage Brady to DREAM BIG! In addition to football, this kind teen loves to chow down on wings, play Fortnite, and jam to some Luke Bryan tunes. Everyone close to Brady gushes about his sweet personality and fun-loving nature, so we would love to give him the full UGA game day experience!
Brady lives in Newnan, Georgia, and is a HUGE Georgia Bulldogs fan but has never had the opportunity to attend a game. His passion for the team has developed purely by watching them on TV. His dream is to experience the electric atmosphere at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium and maybe even give Uga the Bulldog mascot a pat in the head! Can you help us make Brady’s Dream a reality?
