Prayers for Braelynn — Benefit on Saturday, Silent Auction at Smokey Joe’s

Braelynn Hesson

There is a benefit on Saturday for sweet little Braelynn Hesson at Smokey Joe’s in Nash to help with her medical expenses. Enjoy great food, awesome silent auctions and raffles for great items like a brand new Coach purse! See the list of items below.

The event is Saturday, July 19 starting at 5pm. Smokey Joe’s on Hwy 82 in Nash, Texas.

Braelynn Hesson is the two year old daughter of Jennifer and JT Hesson. JT is the store manager at Petsmart. Braelynn is in Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. She will be there for an undetermined amount of time while doctors try to treat her for an illness that is still yet to be figured out. Braelynn went into septic shock, her organs started shutting down and they almost lost her twice. She has had meningitis, swelling on the brain, and two possible small strokes. The list goes on but she’s doing a lot better now and the doctors are hopeful that she will be able to go home in the near future. She’s been in Little Rock for over a month.
