Strong kids. Strong communities.
Cal’s Angels helps cover fees for sports and extracurricular activities for children in families dealing with financial hardships of pediatric cancer treatment. Our goal is to ensure that children, siblings, and their families maintain a strong connection to their communities through continued participation in sports or extracurricular activities during their pediatric cancer battle.
Children under the age of 19, whose participation in an athletic or artistic extracurricular activity has been or is at risk of being interrupted by the financial strain of cancer treatment within the family. We help families receiving pediatric cancer treatment at any Chicago-area hospital.
Prior to registering for upcoming sports and artistic programs, fill out the application below and submit. Please submit an additional form for each child you are requesting assistance (ex. 3 children will need 3 forms submitted). Once received and approved, Cal’s Angels will pay the organization directly on your behalf. The application with Cal’s Angels must be accompanied by the program’s webpage, or letter from the individual/organization providing the activity or lessons.
*Cal’s Angels cannot reimburse applicant directly.
ANNUAL LIMITS AND MULTIPLE YEARS
For us to touch as many lives as possible, we cap financial support up to two activities and/or $500 per child and $2,000 per family annually. However, we do provide assistance as many years as the child is in treatment.
NO INCOME QUALIFICATIONS
We understand ongoing cancer treatment often results in financial strain on families. However, we may request additional information to understand the financial need for the activity or other support that may be available directly from the organization.
