We provide hope and support to children fighting cancer through these programs:

Wish Granting

Cal’s Angels provides a wish or financial assistance of $1,000 to families with a child fighting cancer receiving treatment at any Chicago area pediatric hospital. Our goal is to remove the burden of the diagnosis and give the entire family lasting memories.

12 Oaks Sibling Assistance

When a child is fighting cancer, the entire family is impacted. This partnership will help reach a common goal that goes beyond their individual mission statements to ensure the siblings are never forgotten. The 12 Oaks Sibling Assistance Program, under the Cal’s Angels umbrella of programs, will continue with the original mission to help relieve the financial burden of sports and extracurricular activities for a child and/or their sibling(s).


Pediatric cancer is a terrible disease affecting over 40,000 children each year, 43 children will be newly diagnosed with cancer today.
Help us raise awareness for the gold ribbon and help kids with cancer!

Awareness = Funding = Cure

Hospital Parties

Each year we host hospital parties at 6 Chicagoland hospitals where we bring Home Run Inn pizza, crafts for the kids, gifts for the parents and every child (siblings too!) get to take home toys supplied by our Annual Toy Drive. The day is filled with fun and laughter, and we are able to change the dynamic of the floors where patients are receiving treatment. View Photos

12 Days of Christmas

Our annual 12 Days of Christmas Program was created to help families with children fighting cancer under special circumstances during the holiday season. We take care of the entire holiday by providing gifts for each child in the family from their wish list (up to $250 per child), a $150 gift card for their holiday dinner, a Gingerbread House and baked goods.

Fantasy Flight

Cal’s Angels partnered with United Airlines and their employees to host Fantasy Flight where children fighting cancer ride an airplane to the “North Pole”. The event includes fun from the Chicago Bulls, lunch at Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, shopping in Santa’s Village and each child walks away with gifts from Santa’s helpers.

Cal’s Comfort Kits

Cal’s Angels Comfort Kits are a bags filled with over $150 worth of items to make a family’s hospital stay more comfortable. The Comfort Kits are available to any oncology family, in-patient or out-patient.
