Angels Among Us ( launched 11 new emotional support programs in 2022 for pediatric cancer families living in or being treated in Nebraska. These exciting new programs provided opportunities for families to meet other families fighting pediatric cancer as well as provide some much-needed emotional support during a very difficult journey.

These events were available to each member of the family and provided support not only to pediatric cancer fighters and survivors, but also to families who have lost a child to cancer. In all, these emotional support programs touched a total of 520 individuals through 32 different events throughout 2022. The new programming was also supported by over 430 volunteer hours throughout the year.
