My life changed forever when my three year old daughter Brooke Alyson was diagnosed with leukemia in 2004. After two years of fighting courageously through intense chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, my sweet girl passed away at the age of five. However, she did not depart this life without first leaving behind a remarkable legacy of faith, hope and BIG Love. In 2007, my husband and I established BIG Love Cancer Care in memory of Brooke with one primary focus…to ease the childhood cancer journey. BIG Love’s primary mission is to bring immediate care through physical, emotional and financial support to cancer kids and their families every single day.
Our first program provided catered meals and gift baskets for families during each holiday at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. BIG Love programming expanded to Texas Children’s Hospital in Katy, TX in 2011, to Dell Children’s Medical Center of Austin in 2014 and to Texas Children’s Hospital in The Woodlands in 2016. On January 8, 2018, BIG Love Cancer Care was asked by MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital to join their pediatric oncology team. In 2019, BIG Love extended to Methodist Children’s Hospital in San Antonio, TX.
Today, BIG Love reaches more than 100,000 patients and their families annually, offering 20 programs at SIX Texas hospitals, 52 weeks a year. One of our 17 year old cancer patients commented that, “B.I.G. Love is the biggest blessing any cancer patient could ever ask for.”
The Brooke Alyson Collection is inspired by the bravery and fierce determination of the incredible children and families that we have served over the last 14 years! Design elements have been thoughtfully and lovingly chosen by children, mothers and families resulting in some of the most special products ever created.
Proceeds will benefit BIG LOVE CANCER CARE.
