"Thank you for your companionship and conversation with someone who knows....even though I wish with all my heart that you'd never had to have known this unimaginable pain and loss. But I do so admire how much you are doing for others in this dark world that we were thrown into, and even though it can't make things "all better" for you, it is making things better for others, to have BIG Love in their life. I am including myself in that category. You for sure made this day better for me...and that is all I can hope for....that for a few hours, today was a better day. Thanks for those hours."

Chaney, Jessica, Taylor and Trusten Phillips
Chaney and Jessica Phillips founded B.I.G. Love Cancer Care Services after their five year old daughter, Brooke Alyson, passed away from childhood leukemia. It is because of their own personal journey through illness, loss and grief that they have expanded the ministry of B.I.G. Love to include Individual and Group Grief Support Services.
It is their desire to provide a safe place for parents and individuals to come to grieve, to cry, to laugh, to love, to talk, to remember...and to do all this with others who under- stand...with others who have traveled a similar road.
Their desire is that B.I.G. Love will be a place of refuge for you during your greatest time of need – a place to feel God's love, comfort and peace...once again.
