Chemo Angels

My name is Laura. Last year I started a group called 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!
Here is how it works! If you are a 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

Money is never solicited from patients, nor are financial gifts accepted from
them. This is strictly a labor of love.

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

HI!! My name is Sherry, and in March, I was diagnosed with tonsilar cancer. It's strange considering I don't smoke, and I've never had a problem with my tonsils as a child. I'm 33, and have 4 children, ages 5, 3, 2, and 10 months. The kind of suprises I enjoy every day is living, watching the sunrise and set, watching thunderstorms, and looking at the stars. I also have birds that are my pride and joy too. I am currently owned by 3 cockatiels, 2 English Budgies, and 3 American Parakeets. Someday I wish to get an African Grey parrot. I have 4-5 weeks left of radiation, and thankfully, no more chemo!!
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Hi, my name is Mia. I'm 34 and was recently diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer. I will start radiation and chemotherapy treatment soon. I was delighted to see this message about "chemo angels". I will send you an email too.

I enjoy the small things in life, which fits me because I'm small :

I was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer last July. I completed six months of combined chemo and radiation last month with COMPLETE REMISSION!!!! I'm thrilled and thankful to God for my miracle. I would like to volunteer to be a Chemo Angel for someone else. I can be contacted at heathercarrie@charter.net
