Why you might want to consider taking this opportunity: THIS IS AN EXCITING, HIGH-IMPACT, WORK-FROM-HOME VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY!

In respect of social distancing guidelines in the wake of covid-19, our program is currently recruiting volunteers (Nanny Angels) that can provide free VIRTUAL specialized childcare support for mothers who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period. Nanny Angels lessen the impact of cancer on families, by virtually (over the phone or through video conference) engaging children in enjoyable, age-appropriate activities to help reduce any stress or anxiety they may be experiencing as a result of their mom's illness or death. Through weekly interactions, building trust and having fun, Nanny Angels help mothers gain the confidence and peace of mind to rest and take better care of themselves, knowing their children are cared for and meaningfully engaged by knowledgeable and compassionate volunteers.

Please note, following this pandemic period, our organization will return to the traditional mode of providing in-person service to families affected by cancer in the GTA and Kingston areas. We ask that all interested applicants come forward able commit to the terms of both virtual service as well as in person service. Fore more information regarding this, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator directly at as well as consult our website:
