Every year, Dallas’ employer (PrecisionLender) hosts a conference in Austin, Texas. The conference is called BankOnPurpose, and is attended by banks and tech companies that serve banks. Yes, it is just as nerdy as it sounds.
As a part of this conference, PrecisionLender supports a local charity in Austin. During Ollie’s treatment, we came across a wonderful Austin charity called B.I.G. Love. It was started by the Phillips family in memory of their daughter, Brooke, who lost her battle with cancer at age 5 in 2006. They serve patients and families during their hospital stays, and are a wonderful ray of sunshine through some of the hardest days imaginable. After seeing their impact firsthand, the team at PrecisionLender decided to make B.I.G. Love the donation recipient for the conference in both 2018 and 2019. In addition to giving a forum to talk about the need, they graciously agreed to match all donations collected as a part of the conference (thank you, Ken and Carl!).
In 2019 the total raised in memory of Ollie was $31,780! These funds will be used to help families and patients navigate the trials of treatment and hospital stays, and we are honored to be able to use Ollie’s courageous fight to help other kids.
