|What Patients are
I love my Chemo Angel! I believe she has to be a true Angel. She
ALWAYS knows exactly when I need some cheering up! I don't know
where you found her, but I want you to know I love her!"
"WOW!!! I don't know
how else to say it. Briana's Angel is wonderful! This has
brightened my entire family in a tremendous way. We feel so very
blessed. Thank you for making our days and Briana's so much
brighter. It's nice to know there are so many angels walking among
us. My husband and I hope to join the ranks, once we've crossed
the finish line with Briana, and bless others as we have been
blessed by you."
"My Chemo Angel is
just great. I really enjoy her. She is so
awesome and is always there. Thanks for
"We received two
packages in the mail this week for Gable. He was so tickled to rip
the packages open and find his surprises! Also, thank you so much
for thinking of Gable on his first birthday- that was so great.
Chemo Angels is such a wonderful program- it really is uplifting!!!
"Thank you so much
for this act of kindness, you all are truly angels, reaching out to
others. May God bless each and everyone of you. You all are in my
prayers. Thank you again!"
"Well, when it rains,
it pours!! Justin received not one, but two packages yesterday! He
was so thrilled. We had a very difficult day at the doctor's
office. Then, when we arrived at home, there were two boxes
waiting for him. It was perfect timing! I couldn't believe how
wonderful it was. Thanks for all of your help!! You made a very
tough day for Justin quite a bit brighter!! It seems as if the
Angels really are angels.... Justin always seems to receive a card,
letter or package on the days when something bad happens. It is
almost as if someone "up there" is timing the arrival of the Angel
packages! Thanks again for all you and the Angels accomplish, it is
"My Chemo Angel is
just that.... an angel! She has been keeping in touch not only with
me but with my daughter, who has lupus and is in end stage renal
disease. She has been absolutely wonderful. Thank you for caring..."
"We want to thank you
for this amazing program. When my daughter was first diagnosed, the
help and support from family and friends was incredible and
sustained us for a long time. This program is providing for all of
us a rays of light, hope, joy, and motivation to go the distance.
Our Angels are thoughtful, loving and incredibly intuitive to our
needs. Thank you for making this program available to families like
helps us to experience this difficult situation as positive time
instead of an unbearable one."
"I just wanted to
take a moment and let you know how much your program has meant to me
and my son, who is a 2 year old battling leukemia. We are so
thankful for our chemo angels - they have shared their lives as well
as their generosity with us. Thanks again for everything - it makes
living in this difficult time a bit easier knowing that people
care. God Bless you."
"My son was signed up
with your program until he died. I wanted to let you know that your
organization was the best thing for my son. If you could have seen
his eyes light up when he received things in the mail! You really
lit up his life and I wanted to thank you myself. Thank you for all
your organization did for him."
"Our Angels are so
special to us! We hear from them several times a week. They are
precious to us. When we are a little down, in comes a card or gift
from them. My grandson really enjoys his "mail". The Angels have
brightened his life and ours so much! They are truly Angels. Aside
from the cards and gifts, we know that they are out there praying so
hard for my grandson, and that means more to us than anything."
want to tell you how overwhelmed I was with all the very wonderful
sympathy cards, I have even lost count. I have never felt so loved
and cared about and prayed for. Thank you. It was so wonderful.
They came from all 4 corners of the world, no two cards were the
same. They were all sent with love and a true understanding of the
love God put into their hearts to say to me. I have to admit I miss
my husband so much. He had a twinkle in his eye up to the last. We
were friends all our lives, even went to Sunday school together, and
the prom in high school together. He was fifty-nine years old. Thank
you for everything the Chemo Angels did for him, and all they
continue to do for me."

"I was just amazed when I heard of your organization--what an
obvious idea, yet I had never heard of anything like it. It's the
small things in life that really make a difference--and this is a

is the most important thing I do, aside from being a mother.... It
makes me feel like someone. It makes me feel like I make a
"I just sent my
first package off to my patient yesterday, and I find myself
getting all excited just picturing her receiving it! I feel blessed
to be touching lives in this very special way. At a time when the
world seems to be very bleak, Chemo Angels help to renew the spirit
"I feel like there's
so much inside of me that's begging to be shared, and Chemo Angels
seems the perfect way of setting it all free in a positive way that
can really help people and make their lives at least a little bit
brighter while they're facing such a difficult time in their
"Being a cancer
survivor myself, I really understand the importance of support. I
was given a lot of support and compassion from people, and I would
love to be able to give some back. Hopefully, I can brighten the day
of someone who is going through this ordeal."
"I just completed a 3
month course of difficult chemo this past July and was the recipient
of two "angels" (through my church) who called and sent cards
throughout my treatment...I can't tell you how touched I was. One of
the things I vowed... if I ever made it through this most difficult
time I would return the kindness I received and help someone else
in similar need. When I read about the Chemo Angels program, it
seemed the perfect vehicle."
"What interests me
most about the concept of Chemo Angels is giving something back to
others. Several members of my own family have been stricken with
cancer, and I just want to be able to help in some way. I think it's
important that we not take our own health for granted, and that we
should be thankful we are even able to contribute something to
others who are in need. I look forward to working with Chemo Angels,
and I sincerely feel as though this is the right volunteering choice
"When I saw your ad
it just bounced right up off the screen at me. I have had such
wonderful friends who have helped me during my illness and I know
how much it means to just receive a card when you're going through
treatments. If I can help in this very small way, then I am repaying
the kindness that has been shown me."
"I learned of your
organization just this week. What a wonderful way to add some
"pick-me-up's" to chemotherapy patients lives! They may get a lot
of love and support from their families, but this would let them
know that someone else in the world cares also. And for those who
do not have a strong support system while going thru chemo, this
would be a wonderful way to let them know that someone is in
"their corner", so to speak."
"When I read about
the Chemo Angel program, my heart felt very, very heavy. I feel that
this is something that God has directed me towards. I feel that if I
make someone's life a little better just by being there for them,
being their friend, sounding board, etc, that I am doing part of
God's work. I feel that, in being a Chemo Angel, I am showing
someone that there are people who care, and that they are not
going through this alone."
has been a wonderful 'project' for me. It has helped me to
reconcile the death of my Mother. I KNOW that the pleasure
that I receive
far outweighs what my patient says it means to her. I
wonder if I don't do this for me more than I do it for her.
She has been so
appreciative of the little that I do.
Many, many thanks for
this wonderful program."
"Before I found
Chemo Angels I was lost. Lost in my own little world. Lost
in my inability to overcome the sadness of this disease
enough to help others. I belonged to a special group of
cancer patients when I was diagnosed. We met every Tuesday
night for dinner in a local
restaurant. There were 6 of us. 3 were finished with
treatment and were there to encourage the other 3. The three
of us finished treatment the same month and I bought 3
plants for each of us to symbolize new life. Unfortunately
the other 2 ladies only had a short
reprieve. They died within 12 hrs of each other... Ever since
then I had not been able to get involved with anyone with
cancer. I could not
handle the intense sadness I was feeling. I believe I found
Chemo Angels just in time. I am opening up again. Thank you,
Chemo Angels, now I can again talk about it and be involved
with helping others with cancer."
