Shelby Township-based Angels of Hope provides emergency financial assistance and other programs to Michigan families going through active treatment for any type of cancer. Its grant packages can cover rent and mortgage, car, and utilities payments. It also offers a “Day Off from Cancer,” providing families with tickets to concerts, theatrical productions, sporting events, and more, and a holiday program that provides packages to families in need during the holiday season. More than $5 million has been awarded to Michigan families over the last six years. The organization still is planning to host its 2020 Golf Outing on Aug. 21. Community projects include donating Comfychemo shirts to children, which offer easy zipper access to chest ports for chemotherapy and prevent children from having to take their shirts off for treatment; Santa’s Angels, which provides pajamas, slippers, and toys to children in the hospital on Christmas; Gamers Outreach Gokarts, medical-grade portable video game kiosks for hospitalized children to use; and a partnership with Jay’s Juniors, a program that provides a holiday trip to Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses.
