This year´s Fun Run was a Great Success! Thanks to all our teams, volunteers and participants that helped to make it happen. We appreciate all your hard work and involvement. Because of the success of this event, just last week, we decided to enlarge our services at Texas Children´s Hospital. We are now going to provide weekly groceries for ALL of the inpatient Leukemia and Lymphoma families .hurray. We are also going to provide all Leukemia/Lymphoma kids with a gift basket and seven day parking pass at initial diagnosis. And this weekend, our FIRST bone marrow transplant family is going to check into our BIG Love trailer. And what is even better than that at the TCH cancer clinic, our toy chests are bringing happiness and smiles to hundreds of cancer kids each day. BIG Love is continuing to love and give and serve. It is such a joy and a privilege to do what we do. I cannot thank all of you enough for all the love and support you send our way. It means a lot to Chaney and I.
Next on the BIG Love calendar is Mother´s Day and Father´s Day. Each year, we take gift baskets to all the cancer mom´s and dad´s at TCH and ACH. If you would like to be involved this year, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
