NGELS AMONG US

Angels Among Us provides financial and emotional support to families living in or being treated in Nebraska for pediatric cancer.

A

NGELS AMONG US WAS ESTABLISHED in 2006 by two women whose lives were affected by pediatric cancer. Angels Among Us financially assists families whose children are battling cancer. Over our 12-year history, we have assisted almost 400 families with nearly $1.5 million in support.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES: Become a Guardian Angel – provide $18 a month for 18 months to help families in need. Your monthly gift will help us meet the needs of families we serve.

Become an Event Sponsor – we can always use support for our events and it is a great way to highlight your company.

Families come to us from the social work offices of Children’s Hospital & Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine. Once approved, families needing assistance are provided with $500 per month for a period of 18 months. Families identify the bill they would like paid and Angels Among Us pays the bill directly to the creditor. Mortgage and rent payments, car payments and utilities are a few examples of the things we assist with.

Attend one of our Events – support families battling pediatric cancer and learn more about the difference you are making.

Donate items for Family Kits – fuzzy socks, coloring books, crayons and games for patients that are placed in our care kits for families.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

While we are currently able to help over 60 families a year, the need is still great, AND GROWING. We often run a waiting list of up to 10 families needing our support. Gifts of all amounts help us to meet the needs of a family quickly – this support helps families avoid the financial pitfalls that often happen when a family receives this life-changing diagnosis.

Angels Among Us is always looking for volunteers to assist with our events. If you have an interest in supporting our efforts, please go to our website to the Volunteer Section and fill out your information. We will follow up with you on upcoming opportunities to serve.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, a family’s life as they know it comes to an abrupt halt. Unfortunately, their monthly expenses to do not. That is where we come in. We have the power to alleviate some of life’s financial burdens allowing parents to focus on getting their child well.
