sm bronson ramboBronson is a young boy that suffered a severe, traumatic brain injury at birth. Bronson has cerebral palsy, a seizure disorder, and autonomic dysfunction due to the brain injury. He has had many procedures that include a feeding tube, a supra pubic catheter, an appendicostomy, a baclofen pump and several more.

Bronson cannot talk, but he has the very unique ability to reach people where they are without a single word. He is an inspiration to many and that is an understatement. We have learned many distinctive truths from Bronson, truths that we would have never learned without him. We have learned that regardless of someone’s ability or disability, everyone has a very distinct purpose; a purpose that only that person can fill and no one else.

Bronson has taught us about the little things in life. He has taught us how to live each moment intentionally and fully. He has taught us to see the beauty in the tiniest of achievements. He has taught us to look at people, to really look at them and see them for their purpose and for the very precious life they represent. He has taught us that the most unlikely person can make the biggest impact in the world and in the life of people.

Without Bronson, we wouldn’t have this new view of our surroundings and the people in it. We want to teach others what Bronson has taught us. Although he is nonverbal, he has taught us. He has taught us about the real things in life. The deep things that go beyond the surface and plunge into the heart of everything. We wouldn’t trade this life with him for a normal, typical life. We will readily take this new normal with Bronson, and drink deeply from our unlikely teacher who helps us see the world with new, different lenses.

2 Corinthians 12:9 - But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

John 9:1-3 - As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" "Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him."

Brave Like Bronson was a great program. It helped my students to understand children with special needs a little bit better. The students enjoyed the puppet show. It was funny and informative. Meeting Bronson was cool too! Thanks for visiting our school.

Thank you for the wonderful Brave like Bronson program. The students enjoyed seeing Bronson after learning about him in class. The students also enjoyed the puppet show and learning to accept others that may not act or look like they do. Thank you for the wonderful program.

The excitement that Brave Like Bronson, Inc. brings into a room not only brightens it, but encourages each and every one that hears this amazing story. Rather if they are speaking to a class of children or a room of adults, they leave a powerful impact.
» Heather Augustyniak, MSN, FNP-C, CPG Medical Leader for Survivorship Care

The story of love and compassion from both Tricia (Bronson’s mother) and Yvette (mother to Tricia) is beyond words. They have been through many trails with Bronson, but have always been strong encouragers to many. I can only imagine how Brave Like Bronson, Inc. will touch lives and will positively encourage children as they learn about inclusion and special needs. I am excited to have Brave Like Bronson, Inc. visit schools and include their puppets.

Brave Like Bronson Inc. is a great vision being brought into our schools to help the community gain a deeper understanding of people with disabilities and an awareness of the many similarities and differences among all students.
