Apply as a Chemo Angels volunteer

IMPORTANT! These applications are for new volunteers only. The Returning Angel Application can be found here.

 

Please be aware that, although we do accept some children into our program, Chemo Angels is mainly for adult cancer patients. Our volunteers must be willing to accept an adult patient. 

Not all Chemo Angels volunteers are the same. Depending on your level of commitment, you can choose between being a Traditional Chemo Angel,  Card Angel or Prayer Angel. Read the following descriptions to decide which type of angeling is best for you.

Traditional Chemo Angel

 

As a Traditional Chemo Angel you will be assigned to a patient who you will encourage through small gifts, cards, letters, uplifting notes for the duration of their treatment. A recent poll shows 75% of our Traditional Chemo Angels spend $50 or less a month on their patient.  

 

Before you fill out the application, please give the following some serious consideration. Being a Chemo Angel is a long-term commitment that should not be entered into lightly! Please do not sign up if:

  • you have a health problem that could potentially interfere with your angeling

  • you are caretaking someone whose health situation may make angeling difficult for you

  • you have a personal situation that may interfere with you angeling commitment

  • the financial burden of sending a weekly gift in the range of $2-$5 might be to large for you to sustain

  • you have a major change coming in your life, such as a new baby, a move, or other...

  • you are less than 25 years old

Read the General Terms & Conditions below to which you must agree. We can not accept you in our program without your consent to these terms. Chemo Angels reserves the right to refuse any applicant for any reason.
