ANGELS OF HOPE - A Family Cancer Foundation

A Family Cancer Foundation

Shelby Township, MI   |  www.angelsofhope.org

Mission

Angels of Hope provides emergency financial assistance to families with children, throughout the state of Michigan, as they face the many challenges that accompany cancer treatment. These families not only face the devastation of cancer - they face potential financial ruin as this diagnosis increases their likelihood of bankruptcy by 2.6 times. Founded in 2004, the all-volunteer foundation has created several programs to help alleviate the financial burden and the emotional strain that these families experience. All programs are completely funded by donations. With approximately 98% of donations and proceeds from annual events (Night of Hope & AOH Golf Outing) directly supporting families, Angels of Hope ensures every dollar does the most good.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Financial Toxicity is a measure of objective out-of-pocket expenses, as well as subjective emotional distress, associated with the high cost of cancer care and treatment (Zafar and Abernethy 2013). According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), almost 40% of men and women in this country will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives (2016). Due to rising medication prices, health insurance costs, limited access to medical care, and other treatment-related expenses, the financial burden of cancer is substantial for many patients. So substantial, that their cancer diagnosis increases their likelihood of bankruptcy by 2.7 times.

We have been operating for 15-years and raise approximately $1.2mm annually. We have a strong Board of Directors, volunteer base, business/corporation and community backing us.

Currently, we provide nearly $1 million in financial assistance a year to approximately 200 families, plus providing additional programs - holiday, smiles, events, etc. We raise approx. $1.2m annually with 98% of those funds going directly to our cause. We are 100% volunteer - no one takes a salary. Our goal in 3 years is to be assisting over 500 families annually, with annual donations upwards of $2.2m while remaining 100% volunteer.
