A Few Words from our Families

I have been so moved by what B.I.G. Love Cancer Care does for me and for all the patients in the hospital that I wanted to be a part of it and give back. Now, I am part of the B.I.G. Love volunteer corps, and I love it! B.I.G. Love gives so much to all of the families who are in need of simple items that they can’t get for themselves. Having been the recipient as well as the donor of B.I.G. Love items, I can truly say that B.I.G. Love provides not only items necessary for everyday living, but it brings peace of mind and happiness along with it: two things which are hard to come by on a cancer ward. B.I.G. Love is the biggest blessing any cancer patient could ever ask for.
My wife and I want to thank B.I.G. Love for all your help that you have given us on a weekly basis. We have been in the hospital for 62 days straight, and we look forward to the weekly visits from you guys. You put a smile on our faces, and we feel so blessed to be part of your team. You bring joy to so many people that are having such hard times, and you are to be commended for the service you provide. THANK YOU B.I.G. LOVE!!
I wanted to reach out to you mainly to let you know that every time we see the cart come down the hall , our family whispers a prayer for one of the biggest angels-Brooke. We feel her is palpable. I just wanted you to know that through your committed and dedicated focus, she lives on with her BIG heart and numinous spirit...even in the lives of strangers ...AND that is truly sacred. We are on the journey with our seven year old with Stage 4 Ewing's sarcoma...knowing your me pause and strength and peace. I honor you and your family...and please know that you are a blessing to so many.
Just wanted to let you know that there are no words that can describe the help and much needed big love that you provide! And not only for the children, but for the parents also. Never forget what you do matters! Big love is such a blessing. Thank you and keep loving so big!!!!
My daughter always looks forward to seeing B.I.G. Love during our hospital visits. There have been several times that she would not meet counts to be admitted for chemo, and every time she would burst into tears because she wanted to be admitted so that she could see B.I.G. Love. I don't think our doctor was used to seeing his five year old patient cry because she wasn't getting admitted to the hospital. Every time she would get sick and run a fever, we would have to go to the ER. Even with her being so sick, she was okay with leaving home and going to the hospital. She would say, "Well at least I get to see BIG Love!!
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the service you are providing and the things that B.I.G. Love has brought to us while at the hospital. When the basket of goodies come, my son says it feels like Christmas! Thank you and your family for all that you do and know that it is so appreciated by families like ours who are 100 miles away from home.
We want to thank you so very much for all the goodies that you all sent to us while our son was staying at the Hospital. It is very kind of you to take your time and show how much you care for all the children with cancer. I don't have enough words to thank you. You always brighten our stay at the hospital. We wish that God will bless you with so much more so you can continue your work at the hospital."
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
During many of our stays, we have relied upon BIG Love and their weekly grocery delivery. Not only can we get the foods my daughter likes, but we are able to get sandwich ingredients to feed ourselves during the times we can't get away from the room or can't afford to eat in the cafeteria. Not only that, but they can provide us with the little things that remind my daughter of home, like the laundry detergent we use or softer toilet paper. Another wonderful service that BIG Love provides is the toy cart. You should see the kids' eyes light up when the toy cart comes into a room, no matter how bad they are feeling. On several occasions, this quick visit has completely changed our day for the better. A small gift can make a huge difference. BIG Love is a wonderful asset to the Hematology/Oncology Unit. Our kids are very special and go through so much and BIG Love helps make this time easier.
My four year old son was diagnosed with MDS and AML. I want to thank B.I.G. Love from the bottom of my heart and tell you how truly amazing your organization is to us. Well, not just to us but everybody on the cancer unit. Texas Children’s Hospital is truly blessed to have a organization like yours to help support their families in every way. Your volunteers have given us so much more then just groceries…they have given us friendship, support and smiles. It is good to know that someone does care and understands what we are going through.
