Giovanni Hamilton is 10 years old and has Schwartz Jamel Syndrome. This happy-go-lucky little boy stole our hearts. Today, we hit the road to Giovanni’s house to put the final touches on his big surprise. A complete bedroom makeover (see prior post for photos of the room) courtesy of BIanca’s Kids. As a huge Eagles and Carson Wentz... fan, we knew a Eagles’ man cave was required.
This wish included brand new:
bunk beds with stairs and storage
Tv stand and bureau
42 in flat screen TV
Eagles sheets sets
Carson Went and Eagles’ fat head wall clings
Tons of football and Eagles wall art
Frames pics of Giovanni
And lots of love.
Dalton has been battling cancer for several months. To give him something awesome to look forward to with a bunch chemo treatments ahead of him, we granted his wish to send him and his entire family on a Disney Cruise. He’s been looking forward to it for a long time and it gave him something to strive for during his chemo treatments.
The good news is Dalton has just been cleared by his doctors to travel! The family’s flights to Florida and all inclusive Disney Cruise has been booked!
Bon Voyage Dalton and Family. ⚓️ Have a great time and don’t forget to send us pics!

Grief is all-encompassing. While it is inevitable that we will all experience it at some point in this life, none of us are ever prepared for grief There is no doctor, therapist or clergyman who can prepare you for the pain you will experience when you lose someone you love forever. You must experience it to understand. The famous musician George Michael once said " There are two kids of people in this world. Those who have experienced great loss and those who haven't yet." Truer words have never been spoken.
What many are surprised to find out is that Bianca's Kids was founded on grief. Yes, the immense pain I experienced when my 21-year-old niece Bianca was killed in an auto accident in 2010 was what inspired me to establish Bianca's Kids. Bianca loved and worked with children and had plans to further her career to focus on special needs children. It was at her funeral that I made my promise to her. While she laid in her casket I told Bianca that I would see to it that her dream to help children did not die with her. I'm proud to say that o date, Bianca's foundation has blessed over 20,000 children and families. Essentially, my pain birthed my purpose. And with every wish I granted, the pain in my chest from Bianca's death began to subside.
In 2015, an incredible filmmaker by the name of Jason O'Brien created a documentary film about my story. It highlights the stages of grief and the valuable lesson I wish I learned sooner - that there is SO MUCH healing in helping others. If you or have experience grief and loss, I urge you to watch this 30-min film. I promise it will lighten your heart and provide you hope in your most difficult time.

Rylee is a 12-years-old girl with autism. She, more than most, understands the pain associated with bullying. So, this brave young lady took to advocating for all who are bullied by educating kids and organizations about the importance of using words that don't hurt or offend individuals with disabilities, of different races, religions or sexual origins. Her goal is to ensure that no child endures pain because of bullying.
Rylee's public speaking on the subject has inspired hundreds of kids to take the "Choose Wise Words" pledge. She is taking a stand against bullying one child and one pledge at a time.
It is for all these reasons that Rylee has been selected for our prestigious Kenny Suttner Award. She encompasses everything we look for in candidate for this prestigious honor.
Congrats Rylee!!! Keep up the good work.
She wished to take gymnastics classes but mom couldn’t afford them. We could! So, we granted Amelia’s wish with a year of paid gymnastics lessons and leotards for her classes. She started gymnastics this past Monday night and loved it!
Dalton is a wish recipient who we promised a Disney Cruise for him & his family when he’s done with chemo. Please keep this handsome fella in your prayers. He’s plowing through chemo as we speak!
BREAKING BK NEWS - BIANCA’S KIDS TO HONOR KIDS/TEENS WHO TAKE A STAND AGAINST BULLYING WITH THE “KENNY SUTTNER AWARD.”
In an effort to inspire our youth to combat the epidemic that is bullying, BK will be giving away Kenny Suttner Award certificates, featuring their stories on our social media pages and giving away gift cards to kids and teens who TAKE A STAND against bullying. We cannot lose anymore of our previous children to suicide as a result of bullying.
WHO IS KENNY SUTTNER?
Kenny was a beautiful and kind 17 yr old boy. Such a gentle soul he was known as the “baby whisperer.” Kenny was tortured by bullies at school and at work. Ultimately, he committed suicide to escape his pain.
In a groundbreaking case that ignited the national conversation on bullying, a Missouri coroner's jury found in January 2017 that Kenneth Suttner's suicide resulted from harassment at work and school. Thereafter 17-year-old Kenny's former supervisor was arrested, booked and charged with manslaughter.
HOW CAN A CHILD YOU KNOW WIN THE KENNY SUTTNER AWARD?
If a Child you know (ages 0-18) takes a direct stand to stop a bullying situation, email Debbie@biancaskids.org for the appropriate form.
Together we make a difference!
