My Story

Brianna was a member of the cross country team and played the flute in the school band. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends and also enjoyed playing with her new puppy. Brianna was artistic and enjoyed painting, coloring, sewing and crafts. Brianna was a very caring person who greeted everyone with her sweet smile. She loved to make people laugh and showed others compassion by making sure they know she cared and put others' needs first. When diagnosed October 5, 2008 she took on a positive attitude and spirit fighting her inoperable brain tumor. Brianna said repeatedly, "Just tell me what to do and I will do it." She didn't need details, asked few questions, and could have cared less what the doctors said....she just wanted to fight and "get this over with!"
