Bella Muntean-Angel Heart Of HOPE Ministry
The HOPE/Our Impact
Our Heart's Mission: To give Hope to ALL children with life- threatening illnesses hope through our gifts of love.
A Note From Bella’s Mother:
Bella died peacefully in my arms with my husband, Dorin, at her side but my greatest joy is knowing that Bella is with God and more alive than ever. I still receive messages from people all over telling me how Bella's unwavering faith impacted their life and how she ministered to their problems. We had no idea until she passed that she was ministering to others. This was all God, using Bella’s immense love while suffering to ignite faith and change lives!! We are so blessed... Brenda Muntean "God is Love" which is our HOPE
P.S. I am continuing Bella's Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/thenookdolls which had over 24,000 followers worldwide. Bella was an avid American Girl photographer within the AGIG community but her ministry and unwavering faith is what drew people from all ages, different countries, religions and races to her. She told and taught everyone with humility that "GOD is LOVE." 1 John 4:8
To help as many children as possible with life-threatening illnesses and give them hope to never give up by spreading God's love through gifts and the gospel. This was done through her selfless acts of giving during her suffering and her unwavering faith which has inspired thousands across the world. Let's help bring Bella's vision to fruition!

Psalm 121:1-2 I lift my eyes to the mountains-where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth....Bella, your faith was such an inspiration to everyone who knew you and continues to impact this world!! You taught me to truly give it all to God and I am forever grateful! This photo is of a chapel in SC that Bella loved!! The beauty of God’s creation from this view is breathtaking! I will be posting random photos of family and friends to show how much we love you!! 💛 You will never be forgotten nor the many children and families affected by cancer.

Beautiful Bella - You told me this was one of your favorite bible verses, and it seems so incredibly applicable now that you have entered God’s kingdom where you will have eternal life. My heart hurts and words are hard right now.... cancer has taken too many people. Too many amazing and one-of-a-kind people.
Bella fought Osteosarcoma for a long time with such grace, strength, determination, optimism, selflessness, fierceness, and faith. She truly believed that God was using her and her journey to bring people from all over closer to Him, and wow did she do an amazing job of that. Bella was just a child, and she touched the lives of so many people of different ages, and she even founded her own charity called, “Angels of Hope.” Bella was a lover, a fighter, a giver, a wonderful friend, an amazingly talented photographer, a doll collector, and a child of God. God must have new plans for Bella that are too great for this earthly world. As Bella’s mom says, “Bella is now a princess in Heaven living with the King!” Please keep this incredible warrior friend of mine and her family in your prayers. 🙏
Sweet Bella- Thank you for your endless friendship, for making me laugh, for making me smile, for demonstrating the good in humanity, for sharing your heart of gold, for teaching others what true faith is, and for being everything you are and were. You inspired me and so many others daily. Thank you for showing the world how to move mountains. I love you so much and miss you already! The world may have lost an angel, but Heaven definitely gained one awesome one. 💕 Fly high sweet girl!!!
One of Bella's dreams from the creation of her charity was to be able to build a free-standing Children's Hospital in downtown Greenville, SC. Greenville is growing rapidly and to have a stand alone Children's Hospital that is fun, bright, joyful with room for all ages of children to play and feel like it is a home away from home instead of a regular hospital setting would be incredible!
During our 2+ years of treatment in the Children's Cancer ward, because of limited space, the hospital, needing to combine the children's cancer unit with another unit on the same floor, had to remove the teen room, limit the toys used in the hallway by the children with cancer, share the toy room and remove the parent room, not adding another parent room until the last couple of months that we were there. Some families travel distances here and their children are here for a month at a time. Keep in mind that the waiting room by the elevators on the 5th floor are also shared with other units also on the 5th floor.
Check out the Children's Cancer ward and see for yourself. They desperately need a new environment that not only will give hope to these families but impact our community, encouraging other states to send us patients because of our exceptional hospital care team and atmosphere.
Wouldn't this be amazing?!! With God, All Things Are Possible. Matthew 19:26.
