My Story

Breanna was a very outgoing little girl she loved to go shopping to the 'big mall' in Syracuse to the Gymboree store and get new outfits and riding on the carousel. She loved her dog Butterscotch and she enjoyed watching Scooby-Doo videos, playing with her Barbies, and playing dress up. She enjoyed playing at the playground and going to the zoo. There was one thing she did not like and that was chocolate sprinkles Breanna was loved by anyone who met here and touched many lives when she was here. Breanna was a very vocal little girl and always told it like it was. One morning when she was waiting to go for her radiation treatment she kept asking the nurses where is the doctor so she could have her "white medicine" anesthesia the nurses asked her why she replied ‘So I can eat!' There was a gentleman who was waiting for his radiation treatment that day and he said to us after Breanna had gone in "Thank you" and we could not understand why until he said he was feeling sorry for himself having to go through cancer treatment at age 54 and after encountering Breanna that morning he felt that if this 3 year old little girl can handle cancer with such bravery then he could too. Breanna touched many lives while here and she still touches lives when we tell her story to people. We miss her greatly!
