Help local families when cancer strikes: Emergency financial assistance, education and support for the whole family.
Help Angel Foundation make a difference when cancer strikes.
When you give to Angel Foundation, you provide help to adults and families facing the financial and emotional burdens of cancer. Angel Foundation’s Emergency Financial Assistance program offers support for non-medical needs such as groceries, gas, utilities, or housing payments. Through Facing Cancer Together programming, we also provide educational and therapeutic activities which help families deal with the emotional side of cancer. This unique approach to programming creates a community of insight, empathy and peer support to help families realize they aren’t alone and can face the challenges of cancer together.

Why we help:
At Angel Foundation, we understand that cancer’s impact on a patient (and their family) is not just physical in nature. It is life-changing: emotionally, physically and financially.
No one should be forced to make this choice. . .
"Do I buy medication or pay my rent?"
Or worry about this. . .
"What do I say when my kids ask if I'm going to die and there's a very real chance that I might?"
Each year, 29,000 Minnesotans are diagnosed with cancer, and studies show that more than 40% of patients fall below the poverty line at some point during treatment – even those with health insurance. On top of financial concerns, one in four adults diagnosed is the parent of young children. A parental cancer diagnosis can spin a family’s life upside down. Angel Foundation is here to help. While we cannot treat the physical illness, Angel Foundation focuses on emotional and financial concerns by providing education and support activities for families as well as offering much-needed financial aid for non-medical basic needs.
Since our founding in 2001, Angel Foundation has:
-- Distributed more than $7 million in emergency financial assistance.
-- Provided more than 25,000 services to individuals through our programs.
Your support today will help ensure our vital programs continue to be a source of help for those facing cancer. Please, help us continue to say “yes” to everyone who requests our assistance.
