    WINDHAM, N.H. —A boy from Windham sought help Thursday to try to win a wheelchair-accessible van in a national contest.

    Brayden Christmas, 6, was born with a rare genetic disorder called L-1 Syndrome and has endured 13 surgeries in his life.

    As Brayden grows, his family hopes physical challenges won't hold him back.

    "It's a lot of things, but we've got a great support system," mother Amy Christmas said.

    "It's really cool to see how many people love us, but how many people love and want to see more for Brayden," father Mo Christmas said.

    Brayden is the only child from New Hampshire in the National Mobility Awareness Month contest online. He could be chosen as the winner of a wheelchair-accessible van. His parents said it would be a blessing for him as he goes to school and makes friends.
