Bianca Bresadola

Bianca was a 7-year-old girl from Liverpool, NY, who attended Chestnut Hill Elementary School. She had many special traits which included having an identical twin sister named Mia. As twins and best friends you would never find one sister without the other. They enjoyed doing many of the same things together but Bianca’s favorites were camping, horseback riding, swimming, and riding her bike. Bianca was also very fond of animals and had a special love for dolphins.

On June 4, 2008, Bianca was diagnosed with osteosarcoma which is a rare type of bone cancer. She began treatment at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse and later sought treatment at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas.

Bianca touched many people’s lives and left behind many everlasting memories.”

After a short battle that included many treatments, Bianca passed away in her parents arms on December 3, 2008.

Bianca touched many people’s lives and left behind many everlasting memories.

She was able to achieve one of her dreams by visiting Discovery Cove in Orlando Florida and swimming with dolphins (thanks in part to the Make-A-Wish Foundation). There were also many other people, business, and organizations that played an instrumental role in helping Bianca and the Bresadolas through a most difficult time. Although she is gone, Bianca will never be forgotten.
