CommentsWe’re here for moms with cancer. The Nanny Angel Network (NAN) is a registered charity providing free, professional relief childcare for GTA mothers with cancer with children 16 and under, and offer compassionate support to families throughout treatment, recovery, palliative care and bereavement. 
Imagine a world where every mother with cancer receives the care needed for her children – so she has enough time to care for herself. The Nanny Angel Network offers rewarding positions for skilled childcare providers who are looking to make a difference.

DutiesNanny Angels provide free, specialized in-home relief childcare support for mothers who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period. All of our Nanny Angels have two important things in common: their love of children and their commitment to providing excellent, dependable childcare for mothers with cancer. 
Become a Nanny Angel! How you can help: 
• Provide fun, educational, creative and safe experiences for the children 
• Minimum 6 months of commitment to ensure support during the duration of a mom’s cancer treatment and recovery 
• 4 hours of childcare service per week to the same family 
• Volunteers are matched with families based on compatibility and location within the Greater Toronto Area: Halton, Peel, York, Durham Regions and the City of Toronto. 
The role is not that of a babysitter, housekeeper or personal assistant – Nanny Angels are there to engage and support the children.
