How Angels Anonymous came to be...
The Angels Anonymous Connection was started in 1998 by our Founder, Wendy Grahl. As a four-time cancer survivor herself, Wendy saw the opportunity to help others in a very special way. Through her vision and tireless efforts, she paved the way for us to help fulfill a final wish for terminally ill adults. People who are experiencing financial hardship - often as a result of their illness - who would otherwise not be able to afford to see their wish through. After becoming a registered charity in 2002, Angels Anonymous has continued on with this important work with over 225 wishes granted across Canada. After Wendy's passing in 2018, she has left a beautiful legacy for us to carry on, and with the help of our many supporters, we will continue on with the Angels Anonymous Purpose, Mission and Vision...
