On Sunday, January 9th, 2022 our brightest light went out. Our sweet Maya Grace succumbed to her battle against DIPG , peacefully next to her mother in her sleep.
Maya Grace Bragdon was born, along with her twin sister Abigail on May 2, 2014. Maya was the sweetest, funniest little girls you could ever meet, although slightly shy. Her favorite place were the beaches of MV and any playground with her sister.
She loved board games and played all the time. She never really had a chance to get into any sports but had no problem expelling energy.
Maya was diagnosed with DIPG in December of 2020. Her prognosis was not good, 8-11 months .
We did everything we could , clinical trials, multiple drug combos and radiation treatments. She never complained- ever. She battled this disease for 13 months, with everything she had. She left this world in the early morning hours of Sunday, cuddling as we had every morning for the past year.
We have chosen not to have any public services and will be spreading her ashes upon the shores of Martha’s Vineyard, her favorite place over the summer.
Maya is survived by her twin sister, Abigail, Parents Shawn and Kimberly Bragdon of Revere, her Papa Michael Bragdon and her Nanaka Kathy Meagher of Beverly, her late grandmother, grandfather and Uncle. She is also survived by many aunts and uncles and cousins and friends.
Our family thanks everyone who supported us this year, in one way or another. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Our Maya is free and we will miss her forever.
To honor Maya’s memory, we ask that in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to The Jimmy Fund in her name. You can do this by going to
