Brianna’s Hope Fund

AIM is committed to using the creative arts and arts therapies to engage and support our youngest patients through the challenges they face while coping with a serious illness. Our artists say that they frequently receive more from patients than they give, as is the case with Brianna Medina, and her ever hopeful heart.
