When Margie Sborov founded Angel Foundation back in 2001, she had one goal in mind: help when cancer strikes. And Angel Foundation does just that by offering emergency financial assistance, education, and support to local adults with cancer and their families. Since our founding, we have provided more than $6M in financial aid and helped thousands of local people through our support programs.
Today, in addition to being an active Board Member and staunch supporter of Angel Foundation, Margie’s desire to help continues on in a special program that bears her name: Margie’s Fund. Working hand-in-hand with Angel Foundation’s Emergency Financial Assistance program (which provides $850 grants to adults in active cancer treatment), Margie’s Fund lends extra support in the form of $200 grants for extraordinary situations.
What can $200 really do? Tori Pugh, Financial Counselor at Humphrey Cancer Center, explains just what this program means to the adults with cancer she refers to Angel Foundation:
“$200 to the majority of people may not seem like a lot, but to my patients, it is groceries for their family until their next paycheck comes … it is gas in their car to get them to their daily radiation appointments. $200 can change a patient’s life in an instant and relieve so much stress and worry.
I had a patient once who only had $100 set aside for groceries because he was on a tight budget. He needed to get a prescription filled that cost around $60 and he was going to go without groceries for himself and his young son because he needed the medication to continue his chemotherapy. Margie’s Fund [provided him with] $200 in grocery gift cards. He sent me a thank you letter that said his fridge had never been so full. To me, this shows how impactful Margie’s Fund truly is.”
What is Margie’s Fund? It's a tankful of gas to get to radiation treatments. It's an emergency utility payment to keep the lights on. It's a fridge full of food for a family with only $50 left until payday. It's help when cancer strikes. Please, give today and help keep Margie's Fund an option for adults with cancer and their families.
