Stony Point Community Rallies Behind Family Of Boy With Enlarged Heart

STONY POINT, N.Y. -- The Stony Point community has come together to help the family Brandon Padilla, an 11-year-old boy who suffers from Noonan Syndrome.

A GoFundMe was launched for Padilla's family, having raised more than $2,000, with the goal of helping them buy a car so they can go to doctor's appointments.  The family has had car trouble and is not near public transportation. Padilla's family includes his mom and two older siblings.

Noonan Syndrome has caused Padilla to be born with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an enlarged heart.  At three months old, Brandon underwent a heart transplant, and would later spend most of his first two years in the hospital.

Padilla is currently on over 13 medications that he must take daily, bearing side effects from nausea to high blood pressure, and from vomiting to severe migraine headaches.

Despite his ailments, Padilla still manages to make jokes and loves basketball, swimming, and bowling, according to the GoFundMe. To donate, click here .
