The Jacquie Liggett Angel Fund provides financial assistance to women in the state of Florida who have ovarian cancer. However, priority is given to Palm Beach County residents. The funds are available to women who need financial assistance for medical care and/or living expenses such as groceries, utility bills, mortgage and/or rent. Since 2004, we have helped countless women with ovarian cancer and our grants continue to grow each year.
If you are a patient in need or know of someone with ovarian cancer and would like more information, please contact H.O.W.'s Director Jennifer McGrath at (561) 406-2109 or by email at Jennifer@howflorida.org. You may also download the application.
Angel A is a single woman who despite being diagnosed with ovarian cancer has valiantly attempted to keep her life as normal as possible. Almost constant chemotherapy has left her with mounting bills, and her physical and emotional well-being have been tested. Through the Jacquie Liggett Angel Fund, she received funds to help her with multiple utility bills and car insurance. Shortly after receiving this aid, Angel A sent a warm thank you letter saying that our help gave her time to catch her breath.
Angel B was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in March of 2003. Although she has a loving and supportive family, she was referred to H.O.W. by a concerned healthcare worker. The family car was in disrepair making it difficult for her to get to her treatments. She also needed a scooter since she can not stand longer than a few seconds because the pain was so severe. Expensive treatments and medications left no funds for either. The Angel Fund paid for this Angel’s car repairs and for a scooter. Angel B’s thank you letter was especially touching as she talked about finding comfort in the ability to do normal things again such as attending her quilting group.
