Our Programs

Food Program

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Food_Program.pngBreast Cancer Angels provides gift cards to the market of the client’s choice; the dollar amount depends on family size and need. The average per household is $250.00 per month.

Housing Needs

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Housing_Needs.pngBreast Cancer Angels assists with emergency housing costs. We assist with monthly (up to $500 per month) housing costs for women in treatment for metastatic breast cancer and women struggling to complete treatment so they can return to work.

Clothes and Other Needs

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Clothes.pngBreast Cancer Angels provides gift cards to local stores for the needs of children in the home. We do this throughout the year with more spent in the fall, for school supplies, clothes and shoes and at Christmas, for toys and other gifts.

Medical Co-Pays & Cobra Costs

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Medica_Co_Pay.pngWe provide this aid as needed. We do not want to see women lose their insurance in the middle of treatment or not be able to get their prescriptions filled.

Home Health Care & Final Expense

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Home_Healthcare.pngWe help pay for short-term home health care as needed. We also assist with final expenses.

Second Opinion Fund

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Second_Opinion.pngJerry & Patti Walsh established a Second Opinion Fund with us, in memory of their daughter, Dayna. We have assisted many women in getting an expert second opinion, which improves their chance of survival.

Scholarship Fund

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Scholarship_Fund.pngIn 2006 we started a special Scholarship Fund. To date we have financially assisted 45 young people whose lives were affected by their mother’s breast cancer. 

Social Worker

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Social_Worker.pngBreast Cancer Angels has a paid social worker who helps our clients find other resources.  She also makes home visits to assess client needs.

Legal Assistance

b_100_100_16777215_00_images_bca-icons_Icon_Legal_Assistance.pngWe have 3 pro bono attorneys to assist our clients with custody and other legal issues.

Our annual expenditure on client needs is now over $400,000.  Monthly we assist at least 50 women who are long term clients and another 45 to 60 women who need our assistance on an emergency basis. Each year at least 14 of the women we are assisting lose their battle. We continue to assist even when hospice is called in.

Transportation

We provide gas cards or bus passes to help our women get to treatments.

Holiday Party For Clients

Each year we have a Holiday Party, at Boomer’s Amusement Park in Fountain Valley, for our clients and their families. All of the families attending go home with a trunk full of gifts. We have our volunteer Santa & Mrs. Claus come and hand out gifts to the children, and the moms get to visit with each other and work on a Christmas craft. All of the kids get wristbands and tokens so they can have fun and just be kids. In 2013 we had over 190 people participate.
