Two years ago, Braden Burke was diagnosed with stage 2C melanoma. Two operations, including removal of lymph nodes put the cancer in remission. Four weeks ago, circumstances changed. Tumors are appearing and growing very aggressively. The cancer has spread to his lungs and brain. The diagnosis is now stage 4 metastatic melanoma. Braden is unbelievably courageous and a fighter. His attitude is much to be admired. He has started targeted chemotherapy while continuing to fulfill his duties with the Forest Service as long as he is able and to live life to the fullest. He knows he is in for a fight to beat this cancer. We as his family and friends are striving every day to remain positive despite the mounting pressures from every angle. Your generosity and support to help Braden win this fight are very much appreciated.
Braden Burke is a fun loving, caring, and generous young man. He is loved by all that know him and is a friend to all. His countless friends and family members admire him and are grateful for what he adds to their life. Braden is passionate about the outdoors and spends most of his spare time hunting, fishing, and being on “the mountain”. He is pursuing a degree in Natural Resources, plans to be enrolled at Snow College in January and would like to finish his studies at Utah State University. This summer he has dedicated his time and efforts to the Forest Service fighting wildfires.
