ND Right to Life Spring Banquet - Grand Forks

  • Hilton Garden Inn - Grand Forks 4301 James Ray Drive Grand Forks, ND, 58202 United States (map)

We are excited to announce our keynote speaker for our 2019 Spring Banquet will be Brandon Buell. 

BRANDON BUELL was born and raised in a conservative Christian home in a small town in Central Florida, it wasn’t until the birth of his son, Jaxon, that Brandon Buell truly recognized the purpose behind his lifelong Pro-Life belief and convictions.

Jaxon Buell, who’s story became known as “Jaxon Strong”, was born on August 27, 2014 in

Orlando, Florida with an extreme and incurable neurological disorder. During the pregnancy,

hope for Jaxon’s life was nearly impossible to find. Frequently, abortion was suggested by

medical professionals and it was stated that Jaxon may live only a few weeks – if he were to

even survive delivery – and he would be significantly limited in his abilities.

Through faith, Jaxon’s parents chose life for their son. Against the odds, he showed strength in

return since the first time they held him. Jaxon is now four years old, and although the journey

has not been easy, and his future is unpredictable, Jaxon has undoubtedly surpassed the

expectations and his original prognosis.

Brandon decided to share Jaxon’s story publicly, believing that his son’s life was special, and

that all lives have value and a purpose. On social media, Jaxon’s life has been followed by

hundreds of thousands of people from every continent and his story has been featured in

numerous major media articles around the world.

From the far-reaching impact that Jaxon’s life and story has created, Brandon has been blessed

with the opportunity to become a Pro-Life published author and public speaker, delivering

addresses and keynotes at various events including in Washington, D.C. and at the National

Right to Life Convention on several occasions. Brandon has also met with members of the

United States Congress to share the story of his son, and his Pro-Life stance. In recent months,

Brandon has joined Florida Right to Life as an At-Large Director and National Men for Life as

their Vice-President as he continues his advocacy.

Brandon boldly lends his voice – for the voiceless and for his son – from a father’s perspective,

which he believes is imperative for the Pro-Life movement now and in the future.
