An estimated 13.7 million Americans with a history of cancer were alive on January 1, 2012. As of January 1, 2022, it is estimated that the population of cancer survivors will increase to almost 18 million: 8.8 million males and 9.2 million females. In 2012 statistical evidence suggested that approximately one-third of the expected cancer deaths to occur would be related to being obese, physical inactivity, and poor nutrition; so in all probability could have been prevented with regular exercise and proper nutrition.
Breast cancer is a disease that has had a profound impact on survivors, their families and the public. Recognizing that the need for support, education and care extends beyond medical intervention for those diagnosed with the disease, a group of survivors who experienced first-hand the gap that exists for survivors and their families, came together in 2011 to establish Angels Surviving Cancer, Inc. (Angels) –a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to enlighten, educate and address real needs for those affected by breast cancer. Angels is committed to educating the public on the importance of assisting breast cancer survivors with all of their needs—be it financial, spiritual and emotional support–thereby minimizing depression, anxiety, improving their moods and overall self-image. Angels provide those facing cancer with a much-needed sense of control over their situation, by assisting them with maintaining their quality of life and developing coping mechanisms in the face of cancer. Instead of using a clinical approach, Angels are committed to a grassroots effort that fosters personal attention and provides care to both the patient and their families.
