Please join us as we provide comfort to children battling cancer, and their families, when they need it most. Using our experience as a cancer family, we want to share the love that our daughter, Bryanna, had for people, nature, and animals. The Give Kids a Snuggle program provides stuffed animals and comforting blankets to cancer warriors and their siblings. Help us Give Kids a Snuggle!
We welcome donations year round through PayPal, our website, mail and Facebook at www.facebook.com/bryannaslove. We continue to donate stuffed animals and blankets year round and always welcome donations of new items.
Thank You for Helping Us GIVE KIDS A SNUGGLE!
Our Kids Crushing Cancer Campaign is held every September during Childhood Cancer Awareness! Think of your best designs that encompass Bravery, Strength, Love and Hope of Childhood Cancer!
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. We are also sending stuffed animals to kids during the COVID19 crisis so they have stuffed animals to snuggle during this trying time. Reach out to us if you want us to send one to your kiddos!
Bryanna's Love will offer respite trips to siblings and families who lost a sibling/child to pediatric cancer. There are very few organizations that focus on siblings and their struggle, especially after loss from cancer. It is our mission to become a resource to help these children and families make special memories in honor of their sibling/child after the hardest battle of all of their lives. 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.
To support pediatric cancer research for ETP-ALL as it comes with one of the lowest survival rate (30% - 40%) and very limited research. Furthermore, ETP-ALL does not have any targeted specialized treatment protocol and therefore uses protocols designated for AML. However, this has not helped improve the survival rate of this particular genotype of leukemia. We want to help change that. As we grow and through Fundraising initiatives, Bryanna’s Love will help fund pediatric cancer research with a specific focus on Early T-cell Precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. It is with this initiative that we hope ETP-ALL research will find a targeted protocol for treatment and eventually find a cure.
Burtonsville resident Kristena Kitchen / Bryanna's Love was awarded one of five $5,000 Sub Abover grants from Jersey Mike’s Subs in 2020 in recognition of our efforts to make a difference in the local community through Bryanna’s Love, Inc.

The Sibling Love program helps siblings of children battling childhood cancer continue to make special memories by funding outings to neighborhood restaurants, amusement parks, sports events, movies, shopping and anything else the children wish to do for a day. Bryanna’s Love will work with the family to coordinate outings and will provide the financial support to make those outings extra special for the children so that they don’t feel left out.
Our Home to Care Program is here to take the stress of transportation and lodging off of families that need to travel for treatment or for clinical trials for their child's cancer treatment. Bryanna's Love is proud to partner with PALs (Patient Airlift Services) to make this possible! When a family needs to travel to their child's treatment, Bryanna's Love will facilitate the air and ground transportation. We will be your go between with PALS to ensure you are able to fly safely be it through a commercial flight or a chartered private flight. Ground transportation from the destination airfield to the hotel is provided by PALS and Bryanna's Love will help facilitate ground transportation from your hotel to the hospital or treatment center and back. We will also help to facilitate the cost of lodging as needed on a case by case basis. If you know of a family that needs help getting their child to treatment, please send them our way!!
