Nankind offers rewarding volunteer positions for those who are looking to make a difference in the lives of families.


In home Volunteer Angels provide childcare support for parents who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care, and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period to help reduce any stress or anxiety they may be experiencing due to their parent’s illness or death.


By meeting weekly, building trust, and having fun, our Angels help parents gain the confidence and peace of mind to rest or attend medical appointments, knowing their children are cared for and supported by knowledgeable and compassionate volunteers.


Our Angels receive specialized training and the support of NAN’s Child Life Specialist throughout their volunteering time.

Our mission is to lessen the impact of cancer on families.
