Lainie’s Angels was started by a mother and father who had an experience they don’t want other families to have. When their 10-year-old daughter was diagnosed with cancer, they discovered that while there were many good doctors, nurses and counselors to help her, no one could focus on the family’s needs. They decided to start a foundation to help other families by providing a network of people like them who had been through the process, knew the ropes and understood the pain, and could offer the benefit of their experience to families in need. . And they decided to name the organization after their daughter, Lainie (1988-2000).
