In early December, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) invited Angels Among Us ( to present to their leadership team about its mission, resulting in a $10,000 gift.

“This holiday season, our management team wanted to support a local nonprofit who was making a difference across the state,” said Jeff Russell, BCBSNE’s President and CEO. “When we learned about Angels Among Us’ mission, it was an easy decision. At BCBSNE, we’re proud to support an organization that walks with families through life-changing diagnoses and treatment.”

Partnerships such as this are critical to Angels Among Us’ mission to allow for additional support of pediatric cancer families in the community. In 2023, nearly 130 families were supported with over $630,000 in financial support. This work simply would not be able to be done without the support from generous donors, such as BCBSNE.

Angels Among Us is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide financial and emotional support to any family whose child is battling pediatric cancer living in or being treated in the state of Nebraska. Since 2006, nearly 700 families have been supported with nearly $5 million in financial support. If you are interested in attending and/or sponsoring any of these events, please contact Aly Goedeken at or by calling (402) 934-0999. Learn more at
