Chemo Angels

Hi! My name is Laura. I lost my father to cancer 11 years ago, and ever since then I've felt a need to reach out to cancer patients. Last year I started Chemo Angels, and I would like to tell you a bit about it.
We are a volunteer group dedicated to adding a
ray of sunshine to the lives of those undergoing treatment for cancer. We believe that men, women and children who are going
through the physical, emotional and mental rigors of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy deserve some pampering and special treatment!

There are three ways to participate in Chemo Angels.

* As a diagnosed cancer patient who is about to begin, or has begun
treatment. We will send you a questionaire to fill
out, which will give us an idea as to what sort of
surprises would brighten your day and lighten your
heart. You will be "adopted" by a Chemo Angel who,
through small gifts, cards, encouraging notes, etc... will be your angel for the duration of your course of treatment.

* As a Chemo Angel. We are always looking for
volunteers to undertake this intensely satisfying and rewarding commitment. Whether you volunteer once, or sign on for life, you are welcome and needed! This is a commitment of time and money, however, and we ask that you only sign up if you are able to follow through. Each chemo angel is responsible for buying and mailing the cards and small gifts for his/her patient.

* As a Messenger Angel. Help us spread the word! If you know anyone who would benefit from our service, please tell them about us or send us their email address and we will send them an invitation! Our website, www.chemoangels.com, is currently under construction; for now we can be contacted by email at
ChemoAngels@yahoo.com

Money is never solicited from either Chemo Angels or cancer patients, nor are financial gifts accepted from either. This is strictly a labor of love.

Please feel free to contact me with any
questions you may have.

Sincerely,

Laura Armstrong
Founder, Chemo Angels
