Christmas Toy Drive 2017 for Georgia Families in Need

November 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Once again Be The Change- Brandy Angel Foundation, Inc is working together with Catrett & Associates Casting Company to bring some joy and love to local families in need this Holiday Season. We are accepting all gifts for all age groups, not only for children but the parents as well. Think about every day items that parents could use to make their lives easier for themselves and their children.  Every year, as the holidays approach, families around the world gather together to celebrate with festive decorations and also an exchange of gifts. What’s very easy to forget during these times of feasting and celebrating is the fact that there are so many families in our very own communities that are struggling just to put food on the table for their kids. We want to help those families remember what the holidays truly mean. We want to show them the spirit of giving, compassion and love. Let's put something under the trees of these families that might not have anything there otherwise. We want to give gifts that give back to not only the receiver but the giver. This year we are so honored to be working with local organizations that will hand deliver these gifts to families in need. If you would like to donate gifts please contact us for more information.

We hope this year will be just as successful at bringing joy and love to those who need it most. Thank you Wes Brawner for capturing these beautiful memories in such an amazing video.

Happy 1st Birthday Jesmin

October 02, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

When the princesses of Be the Change - Brandy Angel Foundation, Inc. first met Jesmin she was just a few months old and on the AFLAC floor. Jesmin was diagnosed with Stage 3 Intermediate-Risk Neuroblastoma on December 15th, 2016 at just 2 months of age. There was a time not long ago that they didn't think Jesmin would ever leave the hospital. But she did, and yesterday she celebrated her 1st birthday. We were so honored and excited to be there to celebrate with her friends, family and even the doctors and staff that helped save her life. Her journey with cancer is not over and we all need to do our best to help fund research and spread awareness for childhood cancer so that we can do our best to help her and other warriors fight for their lives so they can have all the birthday parties they deserve. Thank you so much for everyone that came and helped make this birthday extra special for Jesmin. Jesmin's Journey Jesmin's 1st bday! Brandy Hayes Angel Jessica Davis Megan Alden Rainwater Maureen Alden Kallatsa Isabella Fox Julia Himmelsbach Smith Jessica Curtright Debra Kitchens Adams thank you for the amazing cupcakes. Lanier High School Band thank you so much for coming and playing Happy Birthday for this sweet girl! #bethechangebaf #gogold #childhoodcancerawareness

 


Ava Nicole

This sweet girl is Ava Nicole Voyles and she has anaplastic ependymoma. Her journey with cancer started on her 10month old birthday (9/11/14) she had not been sick once since her birth but her family noticed that she was tilting her head quite a bit and took her in to see her peds dr. and she thought it was a stiff neck,she gave them things to try but they didn't work. Her family finally got sent to CHOA and after all the test xrays, mri they came and told them it was a mass in her brain. They did surgery 2 days later and then told the family that she had stage 3 anaplastic ependymoma, it is a rare brain and spine cancer. They did get all of the tumor during surgery but there was a very small spot that they couldn't get to that they really didn't think it was cancer. Ava wasn't old enough for radiation when she was first diagnosed so they started her on chemo to by time for proton radiation. After 2 months of chemo they did Ava's next scans. They noticed the spot they weren't concerned with had grown. So on New Year's Eve Ava had her second brain surgery. At this point Ava in 3 years old and has had 7 brain surgeries and 1 spinal surgery but currently has no evidence of the cancer that she has fought so hard to overcome. I know she will fight just as hard to overcome any obstacle she faces in her future! She is such an inspiration and hero to everyone that meets her. #teamava #cancersucks #gogold #bethechangebaf
