What We Do
Angels Among Us provides financial and emotional support to families whose children are battling cancer. Any family living in or being treated in the state of Nebraska is eligible to apply for financial assistance(payments made directly to creditors). Since 2006, Angels Among Us has provided over $3.4 million in support to nearly 600 families from our community.
Families are recommended for support from the Hematology/Oncology social work offices of Children's Hospital & Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine. Once an application is completed and approved, families are assisted for as long as their treatment plan deems appropriate ranging from 6 months to 36 months and can receive either $500 or $750 a month based on household income levels and the federal poverty rates.
