GREAT news - B.I.G. Love Cancer Care won the Pepsi challenge Grant Contest. Thank you so much for your "voting" help. We will be receiving our first payment of $12,500 this week. Woohoo. This grant will purchase groceries for each room on the cancer unit for an entire year. Thank you Pepsi!
Also, Chaney. Taylor and I have recently relocated (as of aug. 1st) to Little Rock, AR...approx. two hours north of our previous residence in El Dorado. We are now 15 miles from Arkansas children's Hospital and able to further pursue our vision for B.I.G. Love in this area. Our new address is: 5 Canadian Cove. Maumelle, AR 72113. Also, my suddenlink email address is no longer in service. Use firstname.lastname@example.org
