In loving memory of Chelsey

B.I.G. Love provides toys on a weekly basis for the cancer clinic at Texas Children's Hospital (main and west campus) and Dell Children's Medical Center. Serving approximately over 600 children and teens each month. After procedures, pokes or radiation, cancer kids at the clinic get to take a trip to the B.I.G. Love toy closets and pick out a special surprise. Our Toy Project has brought to the children and teens at the cancer clinic many smiles and much joy.

Conduct a toy drive

Collect toys $5.00 and under, and e-mail  Toy Drive Coordinator, Susan Leining (Houston) when your Toy Drive is complete.

Easton's mom wrote to us saying,

"B.I.G. Love Cancer Care has been there for us all along the way -throughout countless surgeries, procedures and hospital stays. They have brought hope to us even in the darkest of days. BIG Love gives Easton a reason to smile when he's feeling weak and sick in the hospital. They help ease the financial burden for families at the hospital and provide the children toys to occupy their time when they are isolated. We are so thankful for the prayers and assistance offered by BIG Love"
