This is the story of a happy, healthy baby boy who became severely brain injured and crippled at the age of eight months, after receiving his "routine" vaccines. His prognosis was bleak with doctors predicting that he would never walk or speak. This is also the story of that little boy's determined father who refused to give up on his young son. Today, 29 years later, despite personal and professional hardships, that father continues to be his son's "coach", "cheerleader" and "biggest fan."

Bryson and Barry's Story . . .
"After being profoundly brain-injured and crippled through his vaccinations at 8 months old, my courageous son finally walked independently at 10 years old, after many thousands of hours of agonizing, repetitious work." ~ Barry Milazzo
"My perfectly healthy son Bryson nearly died after his eight month vaccinations. When he survived he was left profoundly and permanently brain-injured. We were told he would never walk or speak, and would be educable to only rudimentary levels. There was no power on earth who could put his shattered life back together again. We were advised to place him in an institution to live."
"Here he is with two volunteers at four years old practicing his standing
(without even knowing he is exercising)
by leaning against a wall."
"Here he is at 5, courageously battling to regain some of what was lost. His favorite Bible verse today is: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 - which he learned from Tim Tebow."
"My son is still courageously battling his way through life today, at 29 years old.
I am extremely proud of him."
Bryson's life continues to be fraught with extreme difficulty, and numerous “impossible” battles still lay ahead. Yet don’t ever think we are done battling for hope and improvement in his life. We will never give up … and for good reason."
"Today, at 29 years old, my son speaks just fine, although you’d know in ten seconds of conversation he will always remain a child. King Jesus, in His inscrutable wisdom, reminds us all that we must become children, just like my son, to enter the Kingdom of God (Matthew 18:3).
"When all the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t put our shattered dreams and Humpty Dumpty lives together again, there is indeed a King who can do so."
"In God’s Kingdom, where all who trust in Jesus reside, there is no such thing as impossibility. He enables every broken child to persevere for His glory, until the day He returns to carry us home. On that great day there will be wonderful surprises in store for my son,
and for every other broken child of Jesus, the King."
"God knows every detail of his life, and yours. He always provides a way to move forward from even the most hopeless situations, if we refuse to give up, but look to Him for hope."
“…and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” Revelation 21
