2018 Letter from the Chair

This annual report provides me with an opportunity to share a snapshot of the life-changing impact the Nanny Angel Network (NAN) had in 2018. Inside these pages are the stories of volunteers and families all affected by cancer.

NAN was created because I realized the need to support moms coping with the challenges that a cancer diagnosis and treatment imposes on her family. Recognizing that children experience grief when faced with mom’s cancer, we expanded our program in 2018 to focus not only on support for the mom but also to help children navigate their mother’s illness. I am pleased to share that with your help, NAN provided support to 135 families, a 23% increase from the previous year and we raised $1,105,000 to provide free relief childcare for mothers with cancer in the GTA.

The year 2018 was pivotal in our ability to define our impact. As the only organization of its kind in the world providing free childcare for moms with cancer through a deeply committed network of specially trained Nanny Angel volunteers. The theme of this year’s annual report, Lessening the impact of cancer on families, is the best way to describe NAN’s impact, what we do and why.

NAN exists because we believe that no mother with cancer should ever have to choose between caring for her children and getting the care she needs to recover. We believe that no child should endure a mom’s illness or death due to cancer without support and information.

In 2018, we expanded our support of children who have experienced the death of a mom due to cancer. We provided bereavement care to 10 families for a year following the death of the mom. We know that when children are given the tools to cope with grief and loss, they have better long-term psychosocial outcomes and can grow to be strong, resilient adults.

NAN remained steadfast in its commitment to enhance its services and expand across Canada by laying the groundwork for a new location. With a generous gift from Homestead Land Holdings Limited, NAN will launch our first satellite office in Kingston, Ontario in 2019.

Our volunteers are truly the heartbeat of what we do. I sincerely thank our dedicated network of volunteer Nanny Angels who give their time, passion and energy to lessen the impact of cancer on families.

With tremendous gratitude,

Audrey Guth
