Wing Power Fund

Wing Power Fund Program

‘sometimes we need a little wing power to fly’

The Wing Power Fund is intended to help people who experience financial hardship as a result of their cancer/chronic disease diagnosis and treatment. The program helps people at every point of their journey including diagnosis, treatment, palliative care and survivorship.

Pajama Angels believes in integrative health care which is best described by the Canadian Cancer Society “Integrative cancer care is a comprehensive approach to treating people. It offers the best of both complementary and conventional medicines. At cancer centres with integrative cancer care, complementary therapies are offered along with conventional cancer treatments by a team of health professionals from both fields. An example of integrative cancer care is a cancer centre that offers a number of complementary programs such as massage therapy as a standard way to help patients manage stress and create a sense of well-being.”

“I would like to thank Pajama Angels for the kind donation of money, dandelion tea, awesome book and the folder of items. I am so grateful for your support. There are no words that can express how much this means to me. “I was speechless.” Just knowing there are people out there who truly care makes a huge difference in my life. Thank you so much! When I’m feeling better I would like to meet each and every one of you. I know I have a long journey ahead of me and I will stay positive and continue to move forward. I will fight the fight and I will win…win. Lots of Hugs!”

Voicemail: “I got a cheque from you guys, yesterday, from the wing Fund and just want to say thanks and it’s uh I can’t believe that there are actually out there that help people. I have been suffering with my diagnosis for 20 years. I will put it to good use and buy some herbs and supplements. Anyways God Bless you and hope you get rewarded in life.”

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity of your organization.  Words cannot express how much this will help me in my struggle.  As a single mother, finances have been tight and your generosity has enabled me to ensure I have the ability to care of myself and my child at least for a little while.  Form the bottom of my heart, I thank you. God Bless.”

“ My road to recovery looks brighter and brighter for all the loving and caring supportive friends, family and organizations have all become members of my team. “I will Survive” Thank You for my Wing Power.  In will come healing, out will go cancer.”

December 2013

“You guys are a truly amazing group of people. I have been personally helped by you guys and am beyond thankful. You have eased so many stresses in my battle with cancer with your kindness. Receiving your help had me in tears feeling beyond thankful and blessed. Thank you guys so much for everything you do in the community and for people battling like me.

You accomplish amazing things for people who feel like everyone has
forgotten them or are struggling and feel there is no help and you brighten their days and show them people care and there is help. I know once I beat this cancer and am fully on my feet I plan on giving back to your cause and even encourage everyone to look into helping your cause to help. “
