Durham Region non-profit, supporting mothers with cancer, calls for volunteers ahead of holidays

An organization that helps mothers with cancer says it’s in dire need of volunteers.

According to the Nanny Angel Network, more than 50 families in the Greater Toronto Area are currently on a wait list in hopes of getting support while undergoing cancer treatment.

Ajax single mother of two, Eva Campbell, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in the early stages of the pandemic.

“I knew I was in for a tough journey, but I was really concerned about my boys,” she said.

When looking for help, she came across NAN. The charity provides meal programs and childcare for families in need.
