MISSION STATEMENT

Angels Among Us exists to provide financial and emotional support to families battling pediatric cancer who are living-in or being treated in Nebraska.

BACKGROUND

Angels Among Us started in 2006 by two women who wanted to give back after their own childhood cancer experience. In the last eleven years, Angels Among Us has assisted over 300 families with $1.3 million in support. Families are identified through the social work offices of Children’s Hospital & Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine. Bills are paid directly to the identified creditor ensuring that funds are used for their intended purpose. Angels Among Us has assisted with mortgage and rent payment, car payments, utility bills, and more.

BRAG LINES

Yes, Angels Among Us supports families financially, but more importantly, Angels Among Us has helped more than 300 families read bedtime stories and play board games without the all- consuming worry of paying rent, insurance or utility bills. We are a community of people helping people. There is strength in numbers. There is also hope, help and monetary relief.

PAY IT FORWARD

There are so many good causes that could use your help.We understand that. But if you could give a cancer family just a little relief and allow them to worry less about where their mortgage, rent or utility money will come from – well then, would that tip the scale? Life isn’t fair. But with your help, life just got a little fairer. Doing good is, well, good. Doing good for others….well that makes you an angel.
