Little Angels Needs Your Help

The Little Angels Blood Cancer Fund does not receive direct funding from any level of government. The cost of helping blood cancer patients is ultimately paid for through donations from individuals and businesses, longer-term endowments and fundraising activities (such as skiers being sponsored in the Gatineau Loppet), and various grant programs (like the Minto Foundation).

Why Help Little Angels

  • You will be directly helping patients experiencing financial difficulties during treatment.
  • You will be making a big difference by removing a mostly unseen barrier to equal access to hospital care.
  • Your support will help patients and families be together during a difficult time.
  • The number of patients needing assistance is growing at about 20% each year;
  • Little Angels is unique in Canada; there is no other organization that supports patients in these circumstances.

How We Use Your Money Effectively

  • Over 98% of funds raised directly benefit blood cancer patients.
  • Using established financial criteria, decisions about assistance to patients are made by professional Social Workers in the hematology department at the Ottawa Hospital.
  • The Ottawa Hospital Foundation administers all funds.
  • No one involved in the operation of Little Angels receives any monetary benefit from the fund.
