Accomplishments
More than $650,000 in emergency financial assistance was distributed to 1,200 adults with cancer and their families; an increase of 25% over the previous year. Margie’s Fund, a small fund dedicated to providing financial assistance up to $200 for extraordinary circumstances, provided nearly $50,000 to families – an all-time high. More than 110 youth attended Kids Kamp in early August – our largest group yet. As a direct result of the Kids Kamp experience, 81% of the campers reported feeling more comfortable communicating with their family about cancer. Family Topic Nights were successfully introduced in 2012 through a series of educational evenings for families facing cancer. Topics ranged from preparing for college to creating memories. Angel Foundation’s Resource Library went mobile Family Consult, the newest FaCT program, provides an immediate response to an individual family’s needs. Beginning Fall 2012, the pilot was offered at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center and Minnesota Oncology Edina Office. FaCT’s Education and Support Series delivered a modified format and curriculum through quarterly meetings in partnership with Coborn’s Cancer Center located in St. Cloud Minnesota. Establised a Human Resources Task Force that developed a strategic human resources plan designed to attract, develop and retain quality employees. Conducted a formal evaluation of the Facing Cancer Together Program.
Current Goals
With an annual budget of $885,500, provide emergency financial assistance grants, to adults with cancer currently undergoing treatment, for non-medical, basic living expenses with each grant being a maximum of $700. With an annual budget of $50,000, distribute $200 grants through Margie’s Fund to adult cancer patients and their families facing unique circumstances above and beyond our current Financial Assistance Program. Conclude pilot phase of Family Consult and launch program based upon evaluation results. Family Consult is the newest FaCT program that provides an immediate response to an individual family’s needs. Plan and implement the Annual Kids Kamp. Implement the Teen Mentor training program to strengthen leadership and program cohesiveness. Provide new Urban Adventures for Kids through a day-long retreat held at AF which offers a variety of age appropriate activities for children less than 12 years of age.

When cancer strikes, Angel Foundation provides two programs that help foster strength, resilience and hope. Both programs help adults living with cancer and their families gain a level of control over lives during a time of great uncertainty. Through our Financial Assistance program, adults in active cancer treatment receive emergency financial assistance for non-medical basic needs such as food, gas, utilities, rent or mortgage payments. Facing Cancer Together provides education and support to families facing a parental cancer diagnosis.
