About Nanny Angel Network:

Founded in 2011, Nanny Angel Network (NAN) provides free, professional relief childcare for mothers with cancer in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). It cares for children aged 16 and under, and offers support to families throughout treatment, recovery, palliative care, and bereavement. NAN says that cancer is traumatic for everyone, but it can be especially hard on women with young children. Without reliable, affordable childcare, many end up postponing appointments and compromising their treatment. NAN adopts an individualized and specialized approach to its program delivery to create a sense of security and emotional stability for the children it serves.

Nanny Angels volunteer their time for four hours a week so mothers can rest, go to appointments, or simply have a few hours for themselves. When a Nanny Angel visits, children get the warm, undivided attention of a trained caregiver who engages them and gives them a safe place to share their feelings. For children with anger, anxiety, or difficulties dealing with their mom’s illness, Nanny Angels provide extra help and support.

Nanny Angel Network reports that it served 109 families through 1,659 visits to families, resulting in 5,058 hours of service in F2017. NAN has 117 Nanny Angels, who cared for 275 children and supported their mothers. Of the mothers who benefitted from NAN’s services in F2017, 63% had breast cancer, 5% lymphoma, 5% colon cancer, 3% leukemia, 3% brain cancer, 3% ovarian cancer, and 18% other cancers. In F2017, 52% of Nanny Angel Network’s clients lived in Toronto, 18% in Peel, 14% in York, 9% in Halton, 4% in Durham, and 3% in other areas of the GTA.

Results and Impact

In 2016, Nanny Angel Network had a third-party evaluation of its programs by Dr. Ellen Warner, from the Sunnybrook Research Institute and Leedan Cohen, an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto. Research showed that the service NAN provides benefits the entire family. Of the 104 NAN clients that completed an online survey, 87% of mothers indicated that their Nanny Angel encouraged them to adhere to medical appointments and treatment schedules.

While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of Nanny Angel Network’s results and impact.
