Mission and Goals
The Nanny Angel Network provides free, professional relief childcare for mothers with cancer. We care for children 12 and under and provide timely, compassionate support to families throughout treatment, recovery, palliative care and bereavement.
How Your Contribution Helps
The funds that you raise for the Nanny Angel Network will be used to provide age appropriate toys and books for the children of mothers who have cancer. These books and toys encourage communication around their mother’s illness and help kids cope with the very difficult time when their mom is not able to do all of the things she could do before she became ill. Every child who hosts an ECHOage party for NAN will receive a special gift from Mabel's Labels.
“I was truly blessed to receive two wonderful Child Life Specialists … through the Nanny Angel Network. My two children, ages 6 and 9, were very anxious about my illness. Over the past two years, I have been in and out of hospitals. I suffered with breast cancer, heart failure (due to chemotherapy), a stroke (due to medications), and recently a bone metastasis in my spine (spinal surgery and radiation).
I always felt guilty leaving my children with anyone until I left them with Sabina and Amy because they were able to give them the tools they needed to cope with my absence. I don't know how they did it, but when I got home my kids were happy and smiling. This meant everything to me. I finally was able to leave the house without my daughter running after me in tears, asking me when I would be back.”
