How To Help

Donate

Be an angel.

Monetary Donations

Currently, we are forced to limit financial assistance for cancer patients and their families to an 18-month period per family by virtue of available donations. Our vision is to remove both wait lists and time limits. You can help.

 

  • $6,000 supports a family battling childhood cancer for ten months
  • $3,000 supports a family battling childhood cancer for six months
  • $1,500 supports a family battling childhood cancer for three months
  • $500 supports a family battling childhood cancer for one month
  • $125 supports a family battling childhood cancer for one week

Donations are fully tax-deductible and directly support the financial needs of families. Funds are paid directly to creditors.

What cancer means to a family

Often, treatment for cancer in children is deemed “experimental”, and is thus not covered by insurance. This, coupled with the already burdensome medical bills associated with cancer, leads to an enormous amount of additional stress for the family.

Due to these expenses, parents often cannot afford to take any additional time off to spend with their children during their ordeal. Not only that, but the additional expenses can also lead to a loss of car or residence, and can even prevent the child from receiving experimental treatments that could lead to a cure.

How does your support help? At Angels Among Us we work with families for nearly a year with the things that cause them the most financial heartburn.

Sometimes it’s a cell phone so mom can stay in touch with her other children, or a mobility device in the family mini-van so their child can come home after a day of heavy treatments, or the rent so their’s a place to come home to.

Our support is generally limited to $6,000 for each family (one year). An exception is made if another child in the family is diagnosed with cancer, there is room on the waiting list and there is an additional and exceptional situation, or a donor makes a gift specifically naming a family.

$6,000 supports a family for ten months

$3,000 supports a family for six months

$1,500 supports a family for three months

$500 supports a family for one month

$125 supports a family for one week
