Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Bryanna’s Love was founded in honor of Bryanna Kitchen, who was diagnosed with Early T-cell Precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ETP-ALL) only 3 weeks after her 9th birthday. Bryanna was admitted into Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC on August 1st, 2016 where she stayed for the duration of her battle with ETP-ALL. Bryanna passed away only three short months later on October 24th, 2016. One of the few things that gave her the strength to smile during this time was the many stuffed animals and the blanket she received, and of which stayed on her bed throughout treatment. It is through that experience, that Bryanna’s Love, Inc will provide the same comfort to the patients and families battling childhood cancer. The purpose of Bryanna’s Love is to help the children and their families battling pediatric cancer through the following.
Bryanna’s Love offers comfort and support to families whose child is facing a cancer diagnosis and are undergoing treatment in a hospital setting. We will do this primarily by providing children battling cancer on the oncology units a soft stuffed animal to snuggle, and a blanket to cuddle. In addition, we will offer their families a cozy blanket for comfort as they encourage their child every day. All stuffed animals and blankets are collected through our Give Kids A Snuggle Campaign whereby generous people purchase the new items and donate them to us. We then donate each and every received item to the children and their families at the hospital. For this program, we can only accept new items with tags or in the original packaging due to the severity of the children’s illness. We will also offer respite trips to siblings and families who lost a sibling/child to pediatric cancer through our Sibling Love Program. These trips can consist of local day trips or short trips to locations important to the families so that they can honor their child/sibling, and spend some time knowing that they too matter as they try to make new memories that will hopefully give them a moment of respite from the hardship of cancer and loss.
