Brayden Eidenshink, the brave local boy who battled heart transplant complications, has passed away, according to family.
Brayden is a 10-year-old Bakersfield boy who many of you have rallied behind over the last few weeks, even years. Brayden waited nearly 5 years for a heart transplant.
In October, family shared the news that Brayden got his heart donor. But it was a battle to keep his health up since the surgery.
The family is asking for respect during this time. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
