Amiee's Place, a 501 © 3 Non-profit charitable foundation, is a place for young adults and their caregivers to turn for emergency financial assistance when their battle with life-threatening illness puts their home and family at risk for further crisis.

Each year billions of dollars are donated by individuals to cancer research foundations, but these funds are never seen by the patients in need. Very often young adults, ages 18-35, find themselves without resources to maintain basic necessities while they undergo costly, life-saving medical procedures. Often underinsured they are left struggling without the resources afforded young children and the elderly.

Families caring for a loved one with cancer incur extraordinary expenses during treatment and follow-up. This financial devastation affects not only the patient but their caregivers as well. The sacrifices made for their loved one result in the loss of utilities, food, siblings dropping out of school, even their cars and homes.

We are here because we understand!

Amiee's Place keeps families together.

WONDERING WHO WE ARE?

Amiee's Place was founded when our 20 year old daughter Amiee, was diagnosed with terminal angiosarcoma. Amiee was a childhood cancer survivor and was just starting to live her adult life when cancer struck again. She was studying special education as a part-time college student and working part time a job she loved. When trying to find support services for her, we soon realized the dramatic difference in care available to her because she was over 18. We lost Amiee when she was only 23.
