Bryson Addison

Twelve-year-old Bryson Addison is rarely seen without a smile on his face. Bryson has been living with severe asthma, neutropenia, and polyarthritis, but despite his obstacles, he remains optimistic and radiates joy. Through his struggles, he puts his faith in God to help him overcome the hard times.

“If there is anything I am dealing with, I just let God deal with it and put it to the side and keep smiling,” he says.

Bryson volunteers his time with Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital and LSU’s Dance Marathon in order to help other children who are experiencing similar struggles. He was even recently named the Children’s Miracle Network Champion. Children’s Miracle Network Champions “serve as the face for children treated at their local children’s hospital. These ambassadors spend the year advocating for the charitable needs of children’s hospitals.”

When he’s not lending a helping hand to those in need, Bryson enjoys spending time with friends, playing basketball, playing the snare drum in band at school, playing video games (his favorite is Fortnite), and staying involved 
at church.

When he gets older, he hopes to become a computer programmer, where he can continue coding. At Southern Lab, he is the seventh grade class representative and the president of the Junior BETA club. He also maintains a 4.0 GPA.

Bryson is thriving. He’s kind, a great friend, well-mannered, and one amazing kid.

School's Out

in A Note from Mom

School is out, and now, the fun begins. Well, maybe it’s not so much fun for me, as I feel like I just became a glorified Uber driver for my kids. However, it’s officially the start of summer camps, pool parties, sleepovers, beach trips, and any othe
