The Anthony's Angels Family Care Package
(pictured above) is given to the families of newly diagnosed patients with cancer and or some palliative care patients.
The idea for the Anthony's Angels Family Care Package came from the recognition of the little things that parents
and families need everyday while their child is in the hospital for an extended stay.
Included in the Anthony’s
Angels Family Care Package are the following:
*Soft sided cooler for bringing in lunches, snacks and sodas, baby
bottles and medicines that need to stay cool.
*Pre-paid long-distance phone cards avaiable from social worker.
*Parking passes for 30 visits. Sometimes a car can sit in a parking garage for two weeks without moving.
*Gift certificate for the hospital cafeteria. It is good for a parent to leave the room and grab a breakfast, lunch
or dinner. This gift helps encourage them to do just that.
*Crossword puzzle and word games books.
*Notepad and pen for jotting questions to ask the doctor or for ideas and/or journal entries.
mug with Instant coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
*Small stuffed toy. Sometimes you just
need something to hold onto!
*Many more items may be added as needed.
It has been over 15 years since Anthony’s death. To date,
we have served over 2,200 families. Through the grace of God, and the generosity of many, Anthony’s Angels will be there
to help many more families for years to come.
Anthony’s Angels is a non-profit, 501c3 organization and is
completely funded by small fund-raisers and private donations. The cost of each Family Care Package is aproximently
$110.00. There are no administrative costs. Our goal is to use 100% of all donations for helping families of extended stay
patients. So far, we have been able to meet this goal and keep our promise to Anthony.
