B.I.G. Love Cancer Care announces the expansion of their Weekly Wish List program to include additional services to patients and families in “end of life” stages of care. The program expansion was made possible by the LIVESTRONG Foundation’s Solutions Grant program that supports non-profit organizations that go beyond cancer treatment and address the needs of the whole person. Out of 231 applications across 36 states, BIG Love received one of eight Livestrong grants! This new program appropriately named, LOVEStrong, officially launched at MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Center in June of 2020. Through this grant, B.I.G. Love Cancer Care will be supporting children and their families during the most devastating time as they come to the end of their cancer journey.
The LoveStrong Program offers a grocery and comfort wish list, as often as requested, to all palliative care families plus an initial comfort care basket. All items will be delivered promptly by a remarkable psychosocial support team.
