It costs an average of $7,000 to support one Nanny Angel Network family for a year. Our volunteers are specially trained to handle difficult conversations with children about their mother's illness as well as how to deal with bereavement and death. We supply our Nanny Angels with age-appropriate books and toys that help encourage communications around their mother's illness and help them to cope during a difficult time when their mother is not able to do everything she did before she was ill. Nanny Angel Network Coping Kits are crafts and games specially designed by our Child Life Specialist to provide a fun and creative outlet for children to make with their Nanny Angel while also teaching them a valuable coping skill. By choosing Nanny Angel Network as your EchoAge charity of choice you are making a world of difference to a family in need of extra care and support and helping children to build stronger futures.
“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.” ---Maria
