Making an impact

With your help we have changed the lives of countless cancer patients in our 10 year history. Over 60,000 treatments have provided a soothing massage, a pain-relieving acupuncture session or a healing yoga session, making the path to wellness for patients faster, easier and more comfortable.

How we work

How do we help cancer patients throughout the USA? We do this by providing grants to hospitals to pay for the therapists and technicians who provide the care to the patients. Hospitals are responsible for the cost of administration of the programs and our administration staff is all volunteer, thereby increasing the impact of your donations. Additionally, the Angie’s Spa Board generously covers the operational expenses of the charity, so that 100% of ALL donations go directly to providing these beneficial and vital services to cancer patients.

Our successes

In our 10 year history, we have raised over $1,000,000 for our mission to increase relief for cancer patients. This means we’ve provided over 50,000 treatments to patients in need. That’s a lot of relief.

Stories of grateful patients

We have changed the lives of hundreds of cancer patients across the country. We would like to tell you about a few of them who were willing to tell their story.

There is more work to be done

Today, almost every single American is affected by cancer in some way and there are approximately 1.6 million new cases of cancer diagnosed in America every year. We can provide proven healing through effective integrative therapy treatments combined with conventional medicine in oncology centers all over the country. But we need to work together—with you—to accomplish our vision of having these treatments available to every cancer patient in America.

”I can’t believe I’m sitting here getting chemo and feeling so good.”

-J.W. Lynn Cancer Institute

BRRH (Boca Raton, FL)

“ The massage therapist provided a back/neck/spine massage due to my posture, tension in shoulders, and pain between my shoulders. During the treatment she listened to her soul/intuition and provided relief that carried over to my soul&heart and left me with a smile, less stress, and NO PAIN between my shoulders. As a cancer warrior this lifted my spirit and I’m grateful for the opportunity Angie’s Spa provided me outside my Western medical treatment. I feel like a person who has cancer, not a cancer patient who is a person. Thank you.”

-J. Turner, Husband and Cancer Patient Hartford Hospital (Hartford,CT)

 

” This morning I experienced my first massage-wow! The tension is gone from my neck, shoulders and I feel warmth and rejuvenation. What a wonderful and restorative part of medical treatments. Thank you my back is still smiling,”

-P. Turner, Wife and Caregiver Hartford Hospital (Hartford, CT)

 

“I am very grateful for the massage therapy provided at Northridge Hospital’s Leavey Cancer Center. My cancer treatment procedure requires that I extend my left arm over my head and extend that position for extended periods of time. A long ago shoulder injury makes it painful for me to do this, but I know that relief is just around the corner from the caring and capable massage therapist always available after my procedure. It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that for me, this service has been invaluable. Thank you to massage therapists Fernando, Jassenia, and Kendra for easing my pain and Angie’s Spa for making it all possible. “

-M.S. cancer patient Northridge Medical Center (Northridge, CA)

“The massage therapists are so committed and compassionate. They create a warm atmosphere. When patients come they are scared, but the massage therapists make us feel better.”

-R.P. Cancer patient Lynn Cancer Institute, Boca Raton Regional Hospital (Boca Raton, FL)

“Angie’s Spa has been a WONDERFUL experience in my recovery from breast cancer. The staff and doctors are very caring. I would highly recommend to anyone recovering from any cancer illness who is trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

“I am a lung cancer patient at Fitchburg Cancer Center(MA), my radiation treatment started on April 10, 2018. I could no longer swallow my own saliva. I could no longer eat or drink anything. My doctor at Dana Farber suggested a feeding tube be placed in me for the remainder of my radiation.

After 2 treatments of acupuncture within 48 hours my PAIN WAS GONE. I could swallow again and my pain went from 10+ to 0. This was my LIFE SAVER. I have now had 20 radiation treatments on my neck and throat PAIN FREE because of acupuncture. Thank you Acupuncture.”

-S. Lung cancer patient at Fitchburg Cancer Center (Fitchburg, MA)

“ My wife, Virginia, was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in August of 2014. The oncologist admitted Virginia the following week to Hartford Hospital(Hartford, CT) for intense chemotherapy treatments that lasted several months. Our nurse navigator, Barbara, was a Godsend and was sure to educate us as to the process and resources available to cancer patients at Hartford. One such resource was Angie’s Spa, a non-profit that works with their partner hospitals to provide free massage and other therapies to patients undergoing cancer care treatments. Barbara helped arrange for a massage session and that was the beginning of a wonderful friendship with her therapist. I would often call to check on her and was told she would have to call me back as she was getting a massage. Angie’s Spa introduced us to the benefit of this type of therapy. My wife once commented that it was “better than morphine.” Sadly, my V succumbed to her disease but she had a request as she was receiving hospice care in our home. “Do you think the massage therapist could make a house call?” Of course she did, not on Angie’s Spa dime, but we would have never met her  without the folks at Angie’s Spa. A few days before she passed I asked her if there was any particular cause that she wanted to name for donations. I think you know the answer.”

“After my Angie’s Spa massage treatments, it was like a weight had been lifted. You don’t realize how badly you need a massage until you get one. I wanted to take a nap; it was so relaxing. From the atmosphere of the MediSpa to the people, to the treatment itself, it’s all very relaxing and welcoming.” -J.H., patient at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD

“Joya, massage therapist, is wonderful. Kind, empathetic and highly qualified. What a wonderful surprise for my first day of chemotherapy.”-R.K.

“I am a cancer patient at the Leavey Cancer Center who recently went through radiation treatment. I want to express my sincere gratitude to Angie’s Spa for providing services that are so incredibly helpful for somebody going through cancer treatment. It was so nice to focus on something therapeutic and calming during a period of tremendous anxiety.”

-Karen Stein, Northridge Hospital Medical Center (Northridge, CA)
