About Us

The Brianna Marie Foundation

Aran Hissam - President and Founder

Support fetal medicine. Save a life.


I have been blessed in my life to have a wonderful family and an amazing group of friends. Prior to 2012, I never would have never imagined the plan God had for my family and me.

Losing a child is something that stays with you forever, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of my angel, Brianna.

I am now on a mission to help other physicians and families learn about the benefits of fetal therapies and the life-saving surgeries that can be performed prior to a child's birth.

With that desire in my heart, I preside over the Brianna Marie Foundation. We're all looking to make a difference in our world, and I believe that by focusing on a field that has very little funding but can change the outcome of a child's life dramatically, together, we will make a substantial impact in this field of medicine.

By visiting our website and supporting our cause, you are helping to keep us on our journey with Brianna, and we are most grateful.

Reese - Youth Ambassador

Hi! My name is Reese. I am in eighth grade. For the past 7 years, I, along with my friends have held a lemonade stand to support the Brianna Marie Foundation. We love being a part of helping babies that have received a negative fetal diagnosis and doing good for our community. Over the years, I have raised thousands of dollars to advance the field of fetal medicine.
