How Chemo Angels Came to Be

I started Chemo Angels in memory of my father, who died of pancreatic cancer in 1989. In May of 2000, I met a woman who was going through chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. I asked for her postal address and started sending her cards and small gifts every week. After her treatment was over, she thanked me effusively and said that she considered me her "chemo angel". Eureka! The light bulb popped on over my head, and Chemo Angels was born! We have been growing ever since.


I love the fact that I can administrate Chemo Angels from my little home  office in the mountains. I feel as if I have finally found my "ministry", and it is perfect for me.
