Imagine a world where every family with cancer receives the care needed for their children – so they have enough time to care for themselves. Now, also imagine a world where every child receives the support they need to cope with their parent’s illness or death.

Nankind (Formerly, Nanny Angel Network) offers rewarding volunteer positions for skilled childcare providers who are looking to make a difference in the lives of families.

By visiting weekly, building trust, and having fun, Nankind Angels help parents gain confidence and peace of mind, knowing their children are cared for and supported by knowledgeable and compassionate volunteers while they get the time to rest or attend appointments.
