I think the answer is

Dedicate

My prefix lost a life.

Ded sounds like "dead"

My suffix had a meal.

Ate

My infix has a life.

Cat (some say it has nine).

My whole is a big deal.

To dedicate means to devote something, which is a big deal

Hint

"perseverance" suggests dedication which is what lead me to this guess.
