Patient and Family Programs

At Angel Foundation, we know that a parental cancer diagnosis affects the entire family. That’s why our Facing Cancer Together program provides a variety of free kid-friendly activities and resources that teach healthy communication and coping skills in a fun, age-appropriate and hands-on way. Activities are available to your family even if you’re not currently in active treatment. In addition to our free programs, we always welcome calls from parents and grandparents so we can help you manage difficult conversations and specific situations.

Sign up for a program today and meet other families just like yours! Join our Facing Cancer Together program today by filling out this form or by reaching out to our Facing Cancer Together manager, Emily Rezac at erezac@mnangel.org or (612) 627-900 ext. 507.
