Angelmira’s Center for Women with Advanced Cancer is a nonprofit whose mission is to help women diagnosed with advanced/metastatic cancer improve their quality of life and outcomes through education, companionship, scientific research and integrative support. We help women and their families who are facing advanced/metastatic cancer better understand their diagnosis and find financial resources available for them. In the Greater Houston area, we also provide assistance with gas or grocery gift cards, transportation and meals for those who need them.
