“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” – Kathy Calvin
Halo of Hope is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit charity foundation, founded by Angelica Roxas to give cancer fighters the necessities they need to survive cancer. Angelica has a personal message for all cancer fighters and those touched by cancer, she wants you to know “There is always hope and a guardian angel watching over you.”
Angelica is both a breast cancer and lung cancer survivor. During her own cancer journey, she befriended a fellow cancer patient who became homeless due to the rising costs of her treatments. Angelica could only watch as her friend struggled with the demands of her illness while continually being turned away from charity organization after charity organization. None of the charity or community organizations suggested by doctors or friends handled the day to day expenses and needs of cancer patients.
Imagine losing your home and sleeping in your car, so you can afford medical treatment that makes you sick and you don’t have a bed to lie down in. You don’t have your own sanitized bathroom. You don’t have a way to prepare healthy food, or to keep any food on hand at all. During this same period, Angelica had several other friends die from cancer. Friends who might still be here today if they had the proper resources and encouragement. The kind of day to day necessities that Halo of Hope now provides.
Born from Angelica’s compassion and determination to help those with cancer who are unable to provide for themselves, Halo of Hope now provides daily essentials like healthy groceries, medical supplies and transportation to treatment. Halo of Hope also provides a cancer support group. This cancer patient support group gives cancer patients, survivors and family members a safe and judge free place to discuss treatment options, health and well-being and the day to day struggles of having cancer. The Halo of Hope Cancer Patient Support Group also offers various guest speakers and resources for members, and is hosted by Angelica Roxas.
Halo of Hope exists to be a symbol of hope to cancer patients everywhere. We believe there is a place and purpose for all cancer foundations. However, Halo of Hope will continue to focus on getting people the funds they need to survive daily rather than giving the funds to more research and medical facilities that may help them someday. If cancer fighters don’t survive today all these amazing treatments won’t help them tomorrow.
Halo of Hope depends on the generosity of individuals and businesses. We are supported by a team of volunteers and all funds go directly to the cancer fighters who need help the most. Every single dollar counts toward giving a cancer patient the items they need to survive their disease. Please consider donating to The Halo of Hope Cancer Foundation and help a cancer fighter survive to fight another day.
We want to see that every cancer fighter receives comprehensive treatment and care. Our mission is to alleviate the life challenges and sufferings caused by the disease by providing cancer patients with the necessary support and funds they need to survive. Halo of Hope is all about making a difference in someone’s life. Join us on this life giving journey.
