2019 Letter from the Chair

On the occasion of our 10th anniversary, I want to take the opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to those who have supported Nanny Angel Network and the work that we do. For 10 years we’ve supported moms with cancer by being there for her kids. Our support means that mom doesn’t have to choose between her own care and caring for her children, and her kids get to focus on just being kids. In the last 10 years, we’ve supported over 1,000 families and engaged hundreds of deeply committed volunteers who want to make a difference in children’s lives. These efforts would not have been possible without your support.

In 2019 we celebrated some amazing wins. Thanks to a $300,000 visionary gift by philanthropist Brit Smith and Homestead Land Holdings we made our first program expansion beyond the GTA, launching our first Nanny Angel satellite office in Kingston. In just 4 months we were able to help six families in the Kingston area and we’re excited to see that program grow in the coming years.

Our innovation in cancer care was recognized when we were awarded with the international Astellas Changing Cancer Care Prize. This global challenge, which featured entries from 280 organizations around the world, aims to address the complexities of the cancer journey by funding the best ideas in cancer care beyond medicine. In October, our Kingston champion Leah Werry pitched our program to a panel of judges, leading to Nanny Angel Network being awarded the top prize and a gift of $100,000 USD.

Our Child Life inspired program is so much more than just childcare. It’s a fully integrated, community-based initiative that helps ensure kids have the tools they need to cope with their parent’s illness. In 2019 we developed a series of unique coping kits and therapeutic play activities. These activities help kids build resilience and manage stress.

Summer can be a challenging time for families dealing with cancer. Kids are meant to enjoy carefree summers, but when a parent has cancer kids often miss out on the chance to be a kid. To help provide a sense of normalcy, in 2019 we launched the Ronda Green Camp Program for Children. With the generous support of the Green family, we were able to send 28 kids to a camp of their choice so that they could experience some fun during a very difficult time.

One of the most difficult but valued aspects of our work is the year of bereavement services that we provide to a family after a parent has passed. In 2019 we supported 11 grieving families, providing the children with consistent care and the spouse with additional support while they mourned the loss of their loved one. And although our focus continues to be moms with cancer, in 2019 we provided support to 10 families where dad had cancer, ensuring that more children were able to benefit from our Child Life programming.

Our work would not be possible without the support of our donor community. In 2019 we hosted another incredibly successful Angels and Heroes Gala. The proceeds from that event, attended by over 500 supporters, as well as our corporate, foundation, third party, and individual gifts, helped us raise over $1.4M in 2019.

We hope we can count on your support for the next 10 years.

With tremendous gratitude,

Audrey Guth
