Angie's Spa, a Cancer Foundation
Angie’s Spa, a Cancer Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that funds FREE (in-hospital) massages and other integrative medicine services to men and women undergoing chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. We are not a retail spa, nor affiliated with one. We fund hospital programs bearing our name to complement traditional treatments that are not typically covered by insurance.These treatments are designed to counteract the side effects of medical therapies and alleviate the discomfort and pain from surgical procedures. They also provide comfort and relaxation during a tense time.
Angie's Spa prides itself on the fact that 100% of our donations go directly toward the patients services at each hospital program. This is possible due to the generosity of the hospitals assuming all overhead costs and pro bono services for the establishment and day to day operations of the organization. For information about our Grant Application process please visit the About Us section on the top, upper left hand side of our website.
