Cancer is traumatic for everyone, but it can be especially difficult for moms with young families. Without a strong support network and healthy coping skills, many families find themselves dealing with a lifetime of issues. That’s where Nanny Angel Network comes in.

Free, specialized childcare for moms with cancer. Helping moms, by supporting her kids.

The Nanny Angel Network is a registered charity and the only organization of its kind in Canada. We have been providing free, specialized childcare to families living with cancer since 2009. There are three main goals that drive everything we do:

  1. Provide specialized, Child Life-informed childcare for mothers with cancer to give her the time she needs to take care of herself and reduce existing social support burn-out.
  2. Build resiliency in children by teaching life-long coping skills.
  3. Provide a sense of normalcy for children during a tumultuous time in their lives.

Support for families with cancer

We support families at any point during the cancer journey. We’re there from the time of diagnosis, during treatment or through palliative care. We continue to support families who need help during the bereavement period for up to a year.

NAN has provided free resources for cancer patients and their families for over a decade – and we’re backed by 30 years of nanny agency experience.

You don’t have to do this alone. It’s okay to ask for help – that’s why we’re here.
