On September 14, 2004, our three year old daughter, Brooke, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia at Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston. Over the next two years of intense chemotherapy, radiation and a bone marrow transplant, this hospital, medical team and staff became our home and family.
On February 19, 2007, BIG Love Cancer Care was founded. Immediately, we started providing services to TCH Houston - where our story began. Our first program provided catered meals and gift baskets for families.
At Texas Children’s Hospital, the largest pediatric cancer and hematology center in the United States, 91,700 patients are seen annually through their outpatient clinic, and over 30,000 are enrolled in their long-term survivorship program.
