Â Making A Difference
Chemo Angels is a 501c3 non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to adding a ray of sunshine to the lives of those undergoing treatment for cancer. The organization was founded Â by Laura Armstrong in August 2000. Â Laura lost her father to pancreatic cancer in 1989. Â Laura later met a woman who was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer. Â Laura started sending her cards and small gifts every week. Â After her treatment was over, the woman told Laura that she thought of her as her “Chemo Angel.” Â These words inspired Laura to start a website that gives others the opportunity to become Chemo Angels themselves.
The volunteers who run “Chemo Angels” believe that people who are going through the physical, emotional and mental rigors of chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, or other cancer therapies deserve some pampering and special treatment! Â Many of the ChemoAngel volunteers are cancer survivors themselves, or people whose lives have been affected by cancer in some way. Â
