CRC is honored to have established the Angel Fund in memory of Miguel Ángel Balsa Marín.
This fund is used to provide direct cash assistance to individuals with cancer in our community who have a specific and immediate financial need.
We regularly learn of situations in which a relatively small amount of money can make a significant difference in a person's life. We always try to identify other resources that might exist in our community or elsewhere, but there are times that no such program exists. This is when we've wanted the help of an angel.
This angel - our Angel Fund - is now being created in memory of the late Miguel Balsa by his family and many friends. Miguel was a beloved young man, scholar and teacher who died from colon cancer in December 2013. He had been involved with the Cancer Resource Center for some time, and he possessed a special kindness that allowed him to connect with others going through treatment. When we realized that Miguel's middle name was Ángel, we knew that the Angel Fund was meant to be.
