The mission of Breast Cancer Angels is to provide financial and emotional assistance for women and their families as they are going through breast cancer treatment.
We assist mainly in Orange County, Long Beach/South Bay, and San Diego. We also have helped women in the Inland Empire and Los Angeles.
Breast Cancer Angels provides immediate and temporary assistance with:
- Everyday immediate needs including housing assistance, transportation, food, utility payments and more during breast cancer treatment
- Our Social worker will assist you with locating other resources and provide you with compassionate and emotional support.
- While going through breast cancer we are able to provide you with Legal advice for family law.
- We also have a college scholarship fund for children whose moms have had breast cancer or passed away. Most of our clients are not chronically homeless; rather, these are everyday regular people who have found themselves on the brink of homelessness due to their illness. That is when Breast Cancer Angels steps in.
Breast Cancer Angels is the only nonprofit in Southern California that provides immediate and long-term relief to breast cancer patients. Typically, our clients will receive assistance within a week of calling us! Operate on a very slim administrative model (100% of all donations go right back into the community, while a corporate sponsor covers our overhead).

Show aired October 11, 2020. Lisa Foxx talks with Debbie Stroman, the Executive Director of Breast Cancer Angels. They discussed all the ways they help newly diagnosed women (some men too) all over Southern California with some of the most basic needs like money to help with their rent, phone, gas for the car, and utility bills because breast cancer is usually extremely financially draining. Debbie also talked about how many of the bigger organizations send them referrals as they are so hands on with their clients. They are currently spending about $40,000 a month to help an average of 150 women each month through their breast cancer journey., however it may end. We discussed a variety of ways folks can get involved and help give back. God bless all the Angels that give back and support these women and their families, through such an incredibly scary time.
