Angels Among Us Sets Out to Fill Funding Gap During Holiday Season, Sets Goal of $40K
Due to the increasing need in the community, Angels Among Us (www.myangelsamongus.org) needs help as there is a funding gap to be filled this holiday season. A goal of $40,000 has been set to be raised to help bridge the gap for families extra needs this year. Often times, one parent/caregiver has to leave their job when their child is diagnosed and, due to COVID-19, families have experienced additional income loss. Angels Among Us is fortunate to be able to continue to walk alongside their families during a very difficult time but community support is needed more than ever.
Amid a global pandemic, Angels Among Us has been able to provide a record amount of critical financial support to a record number of pediatric cancer families. Due to COVID-19, pediatric cancer families have experienced additional income loss and additional financial strain so in addition to normal budgeted support emergency funding has been used this year. Over $500,000 has been given to over 120 families to help pay rent, mortgage, utilities, auto payments, medical bills, and more. On average, 83% of families whose children have cancer experience financial hardship and, in 2020, that number has grown.
Angels Among Us is a Nebraska nonprofit that provides financial and emotional support to families whose children are battling pediatric cancer. Any family living-in or being treated in Nebraska is eligible to apply for financial support with mortgages, rent, and other expenses.
