B.I.G. Love Cancer Care
By Jessica Phillips, Founder & Director

Our Beginning

B.I.G. Love Cancer Care Services was established in February 2007 in honor of our five year old daughter, Brooke Alyson Phillips, after her battle with acute myeloid leukemia. After two years of fighting courageously through intense chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant at Texas Children’s Hospital, she passed away on September 29, 2006.

Although she taught us many things throughout her two years of treatment like how to trust, believe, persevere, and have faith, she also taught us how deep and wide love can really be.

She had a special love for all her people, and she never ceased in expressing it. Even during her last days in the intensive care unit at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, she still managed to love BIG all her people.

She sent out hundreds of kisses and gave the I Love You sign to everyone in the room. She told us repeatedly, “I love you up the sky.” Brooke’s Incredible Gift (B.I.G.) is Love. Brooke not only loved all her people, but she cared deeply about the cancer kids around her. It is our desire to honor Brooke by serving and extending big love to other cancer kids and their families as they endure cancer treatment.

B.I.G Love Cancer Care Services is a 501c(3), non-profit, volunteer based organization committed to providing basic necessities and personalized care to cancer kids and their families at Arkansas and Texas Children’s Hospitals.

B.I.G. Love provides weekly groceries, overnight accommodations, new patient gift bags, toys, parking passes and holiday gift baskets and catered meals to cancer kids and their families.
