Will You Support Lainie's Angels This Holiday Season?

Posted on Dec 05, 2014

As we approach the end of another year, I once again take this opportunity to thank you for your generous and ongoing support of Lainie’s Angels. I also want to reflect on our more notable achievements.

During the current year, we have made changes to the website to improve functionality and make it easier for parents and caregivers to connect with Lainie’s Angels and with each other. We continue to embrace social media such as Facebook and Twitter in order to expand our visibility and outreach. Based on my personal experience, I have learned that very few parents are adequately prepared to care for their child when diagnosed with cancer. How could they be? Hence, there is a strong need for the support and guidance of someone who has had a similar experience.

Fourteen years have past, but our core mission remains the same: Lainie’s Angels exists to enhance the emotional well-being of families affected by childhood cancer and blood disorders. The foundation provides seed funding and technical services for the establishment of peer counseling programs within a hospital setting. Lainie’s Angels works to enhance the public’s awareness of and support for childhood cancer causes.

What the future holds

In 2014, we embarked on a campaign to achieve the following goals:
• Increase individual and corporate donations
• Attract human resources to build managerial and operational competencies
• Build strategic partnerships to leverage resources and develop new programs
• Develop a certification program for parent advocacy
• Build capabilities for developing foundation and federal grant proposals and managing grant awards

We continue to strive for these goals and advance our mission, but Lainie’s Angels needs your continuing support. Please help us help families struggling to cope with the challenges of childhood cancer and blood disorders. Even the smallest of gifts will help us continue our mission.

Please visit our donations page here to make a secure donation. No gift is too small! Please give generously. 

With sincerest thanks and best wishes for a happy and healthy Holiday Season. God Bless.
