Angel Wings Network, Inc. is a non-profit organization, founded in 2008 in Weiser, Idaho.
We offer support and assistance at no charge to cancer patients, caregivers, survivors and their loved ones, who have been touched by the disease.
History: Angel Wings Network, Inc. was founded in 2008. Linda Roundtree, the co-founder of Angel Wings Network, began the organization from the back room of Her Coffee Shop, Huckleberry Coffee, for over 4 years. After selling the business in February 2013, the office was moved to modest location at 32 West Main Street, Weiser, ID 83672.
This move provided a comfortable place for cancer patients, caregivers, survivors and there loved ones, to visit and find information, about cancer from the early stages of diagnosis, through transition from treatment to recovery and additional support as you move beyond to the new stages as a survivor.
Talk One-on-One with our volunteer cancer survivors and caregivers who have personal knowledge and understanding of the disease.
The Cancer Patient. Talking to someone can be helpful when faced with all the new emotions and worried associated with cancer. We are here to listen, to provide knowledge, moral support, and share personal experiences. Our program offers support to you and your loved ones, from the early stages of diagnosis, assistance through treatment, and transition from treatment to recovery and additional support as you begin your life as a survivor.
Caregivers are typically family or friends who provide care for a person with cancer. If someone close to you has cancer, you may find it hard to know what to say or expect. Worries associated with cancer can be emotional, physical or financial.
We offer the caregiver support in areas of emotional support, transportation for your loved one to and from treatment and medical appointments and helpful advise and resources and informatiON.
Family and Friends have similar concerns when someone they love is given the diagnosis of cancer. Family and friends find it hard to know what to do or what to say in times of need. It is not unusual to find yourself as a loss of words as you struggle to be supportive.
We offer helpful advice in person or by phone. Access to our library of books and literature will provide answers to questions and help you feel more comfortable about emotions you may be feeling about loved ones.
