Big Dreams

We believe that kids fighting cancer deserve creative outlets that let them dream big and preserve their legacy.

We are partnering with musician James Orrigo to provide unique opportunities to bring to life the imaginations of kids fighting cancer.

Big Dreams Virtual Tour

Through the use of Zoom or virtual reality, James meets with the child or teen and gives them the chance to create from home or the hospital room. This program gives the child or team an opportunity to create their own animated music video, video game, virtual reality experience or even a VFX video. This process gives the child control over their environment using exciting new technology.

Big Dreams To Life

James brings a child’s original song, music video or game, which James helps them create, to a community of students, marching bands, corporations, business owners and more who will create the props, sets and music needed to create an experience that will bring the child’s Big Dream to life.

    What kids and parents are saying about Big Dreams


    Chloe, neuroblastoma survivor

    “Chloe is shy and she will only open up to certain people fast. She wasn't too sure at first about putting on the virtual reality headset and moving, but she got over that and opened right up to James. As shy as Clo is, she talked and laughed with him the whole Zoom call. He worked with Chloe on picking her theme for the song, then writing her song and then having her sing the parts. After all that, James went to work and made this incredible video for Clo.”
