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 with basic needs. Since 2006, Angels Among Us has provided over $1.5 million in support to nearly 400 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 up to 18 months during the most critical part of their cancer journey.

Interesting Info

We strive to be THE place a family battling pediatric cancer turns for help in time of need.
