Brynnley, age 6, died in 2021 having had a rare, inoperable cancerous brain tumor. The LiveLikeB Foundation was established in January 2022 by her parents Scott and Kristyn Niederhaus in honor of Brynnley to spread awareness for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma and childhood cancer. Cancer and cancer treatments can put patients at risk for low blood cell and platelet counts; blood and platelet transfusions can enable patients to receive critical treatments needed to fight and survive cancer.
