The Angel Fund, formed in 2003, assists families of children from Northeast Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that have been diagnosed with cancer or bone marrow failure.
The primary goal of the Angel Fund is to connect families to various community and national resources, to offer social support to all families and to provide financial support to qualified families. The Angel Fund was a heartfelt idea from a local childhood cancer specialist whose dream is to create a new local resource for children and families facing cancer or bone marrow failure in our community. He sees daily the emotional and financial strain that these families face. By creating a fund that can help tackle some of these strains, the families would have less distractions and more energy to focus on their children.
