Join Us as a Chemotherapy Patient
Thank you for your interest in the Chemo Angels program. Our program was created for people who are going through IV chemotherapy, or intensive immunotherapy treatment for certain types of cancer. If your application is accepted, you will be "adopted" by two Angels who, through cards, cheerful notes, and possibly occasional small, inexpensive gifts, will support and encourage you for the duration of your course of treatment.
People generally graduate from Chemo Angels a week or two after their last intensive treatment. Our program has an 18 month maximum time limit, however most people graduate within 4-6 months.
Many of our Angels are cancer survivors themselves, but most are not. Please do not expect to be assigned to someone who has experienced cancer first-hand.
At this time we are able to accept people who are in active, intensive treatment only. Although exceptions are made, in general we are not able to accept people who are:
in remission or NED (no evidence of disease)
on long-term chemo
undergoing mild or maintenance immunotherapy
more than halfway through treatment
post-bone marrow, or post-stem cell transplant
on maintenance drugs or oral chemotherapy
under the age of 4
past the first 6 months of treatment for ALL (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) and in the maintenance phase
Please do not sign up someone else without their complete knowledge and consent!
