A 15-year-old boy fights COVID-19 at the Golisano Children’s Hospital

“I just didn’t think it could really get as bad for most people, and how easily it could kind of change my life,” Brandon said. Brandon rallied, and he was never placed on a ventilator. Instead, doctors put in a feeding tube. Brandon spent 13 days at the hospital. He wasn’t vaccinated. It’s a decision he made and a decision his mother regrets.

Moya feared she or her son, 15-year-old Brandon Moya, would never breathe easy again. Her son contracted COVID-19 shortly after the school year started. Soon after, he was admitted him to Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. “I never thought it would be him,” mother Lisa Moya said. “I have never felt so helpless, terrified or heartbroken in my life.”

“We got up here, and they put him on a BiPAP mask,” Moya explained. “He needed the full. He needed oxygen and a mask to put the pressure, positive pressure into his lungs. And when we got here, the doctor told me, ‘I have to tell you that, if this doesn’t work, the next step is a ventilator,’ and that was another blow.” Lee Health released video of a teenage boy in the ICU barely breathing on his own recently. The only way he can eat is with a feeding tube. The teen was not vaccinated, and we spoke to his mother Monday, who regrets she didn’t push him to put up more of a defense against COVID-19.

“My fear every moment of every day of four or five days was, ‘What if he’s the kid that winds up on the news because he didn’t? I thought about everything from going home to my empty house. To just what will I do with my life?’” Moya said. Moya said she will not allow her teenage son to make a decision like that on his own again.

“If I could go back in time, I would have vaccinated him,” Moya said. “I had a feeling I was screwing myself,” Brandon said.
