Families fighting cancer eligible for Angels of Hope gift-giving program

Nominations and applications still being accepted


Angels of Hope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity coordinated by Kenosha residents and volunteers, Lisa and Susan Jenewein-Aiello. They lost their brother Tim to cancer on New Year’s Eve 1999. Their family was introduced to the holiday gift-giving program by Jim and Patty White, who lost their daughter Alexis to blood cancer at the young age of 15. They partnered together with the White family to serve families in southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois upon the passing of their dear family friend Dolly Braun. Angels of Hope is a children’s holiday charity program in memory of Tim, Alexis and Dolly.

The nonprofit charity program Angels of Hope is now accepting nominations/applications for their 2022 holiday gift-giving program.

If you are or know of a family who has children and anyone in the immediate family has fought cancer this year, Angels of Hope encourages you to sign up for this year’s program. The children in each household will be matched to generous “Angels” who will shop for holiday gift items from the children’s Needs & Wishes List. Gifts will be wrapped and delivered to each child during a special pancake breakfast held for the families in mid-December.

An application/nomination form is available online at Once received, each family will be contacted for their children’s Needs & Wishes gift list.
