OUR STORY

Rooted In Personal Experience

Following the heavenly transition of her husband Dick Rose after his courageous battle with cancer, Lolly wanted to make something good out of something bad and in 1995 created Angel On My Shoulder.

 

Her hope was to create a foundation that could improve the quality of life of those living with or affected by cancer in positive and profound ways. Lolly became well aware that family members also undergo extremely difficult and emotionally challenging journeys alongside their loved ones as they face cancer.  Children are especially vulnerable. Navigating the cancer journey unavoidably can and does become a stressful experience that greatly impacts and disrupts their young lives.

After consulting with a hospice social worker, Lolly was inspired to create a camp for kids ages 7-12 who were affected by the cancer of a sibling, parent or grandparent. In 1997 Camp Angel welcomed its first group of campers for a weekend of fun.  in 2001 Camp Teen Angel was inaugurated; this camp was designed to meet the needs of kids ages 13-15. In 2009, in an effort to reach out to older teens, Angel Adventures became the first winter camp, supporting teens ages 16-18. In the summer of 2014 Angel Adventures Extreme was launched. That same summer AOMS extended its offerings through Camp Hozhoni, a camp for families with a child 18 or under living with cancer.

 

Recognizing the needs of others affected by the cancer of a loved one–the caregiver– AOMS developed Angel Care retreats devoted to these selfless individuals. In addition, Healing Angels was developed to address the needs of cancer survivors.

 

All of Angel On My Shoulders’ camps and retreats are cost-free, funded by the generous donations of its benefactors.
