3:00 PM - Lil' Brian

INFO
Without Lil' Brian there would be no Catsbury Park, and without Catsbury Park there would be no Lil' Brian. Brian was born on the mean streets of Camden New Jersey along with his two siblings Brianna and Brandon. From there Brian made his way into the home of Catsbury founder DJ as a foster. Days after arriving, at just two weeks old, Brian started to get very ill. Numerous tests were done, but a diagnosis was not found. Eventually, Brian was diagnosed with a congenital abnormality called Megaesophagus. Many doctors had advised DJ that it may not be able to save Brian and that making the tough decision to let him go might be the best option. DJ was not willing to give up on brian and vowed to do whatever it took to give him every chance at a normal life. Through the help of a wonderful medical staff, fundraisers and just seer love and determination Brian outgrew his condition and became the spokes "person" for all that Catsbury Park is today. His likeness appears on Catsbury Park's logo, as well as the logos for the Convention and Catty Corner Podcast. Brian's story is a story of beating all the odds and never giving up. Now Lil' Brian (who is now 14lbs and not so little!) is a healthy, sweet and loving 2-year-old boy.
