Ann Leonard applied for Answers for Angels’ (AFA) grant during the month of November which is Lung Cancer Awareness month. As a rule AFA awards $350 to individuals with cancer, but during the month of November, AFA awards $500 in memory of 2 very important individuals to our organization who also had lung cancer.
Answers for Angels a 501(c)3 nonprofit, all-volunteer organization offers programs and services to support individuals and/or families impacted by cancer, especially children and those seeking research-based alternative treatments.
Ann is currently going through chemotherapy with the hope that the tumor on her lung will shrink or disappear. She’s participating in the cancer treatment by changing her diet to eating a low sugar and low salt diet and increasing her exercise by walking on the treadmill; but, there are times after chemo that she’s tired and will sleep until she has more energy.
Unfortunately, Ann lost her husband Joseph several months ago from Paget Disease on August 21, 2019. He was the family provider and now a son has taken over the company business of Leonard Motor Express in New Lenox to help pay the rent and bills.
With your help, Answers for Angels provided a $500 Meijer gift card to Ann to offset groceries and household items that she would spend otherwise.
Answers for Angels and Ann Leonard value the support that you’ve given us and we’re very thankful for your consideration of cancer patients and their families.

Melondy applied for the Answers for Angels grant during the month of November which is Lung Cancer Awareness month. Answers for Angels (AFA) a 501(c)3 nonprofit, all-volunteer organization offers programs and services to support individuals and/or families impacted by cancer. As a rule AFA awards $350 to individuals, but during the month of November, AFA awards $500 in memory of 2 very important individuals to our organization who also had lung cancer.
Melondy is a single parent undergoing treatment for lung cancer at a hospital in Oak Lawn. On May 17, 2018 she had surgery to remove the tumors and since then she is in excruciating pain. She has concerns and fears of not having a roof over her and her 10-month old baby’s head, not having enough money to pay rent, utilities, and groceries. Her concerns and fears were growing so much so that throughout the day, she would look at her baby, count to 10 and take a few deep breaths to help reduce the stress.
With your help, Answers for Angels paid for Melondy’s Commonwealth Edison and Nicor Gas bills and provided a Wal-Mart gift card for groceries and household items for her and her little baby which totaled $500.
All of us at Answers for Angels, Melondy and her baby value our donors and we are very thankful for your consideration of cancer patients and their families.
Have a blessed and Merry Christmas!

Most middle school boys are concerned with playing sports after school, playing video games, or taking up new hobbies in their spare time. Well, one middle school boy in Atlanta, Georgia, does all of this, and more. One hobby of his is a bit extraordinary: searching for a way to fight cancer.
After 12-year-old Stephen Litt became aware of two family friends being diagnosed with breast cancer, he decided to do something about it. He began researching and found that decreased rates of the disease in Japan might be due to certain antioxidants found in green tea. Stephen wanted to test this theory and see if these antioxidants could ward off cancer cells in planaria (worms) since they are known to have stem cells that mimic cancerous cells.
Stephen and his father purchased the necessary materials for the project and began conducting scientific experiments in search of their answer. He used experimental and controlled groups of planaria in his research and studied the results under a microscope that his grandparents gave him.
His findings showed that there might actually be a link between the green tea antioxidants and fighting cancerous cells. Stephen went on to win local and state competitions with his science project and was invited to tour a real research lab at Tuft University shortly after. In the future, he would like to transplant human cancerous cells into the planaria to see if the green tea antioxidants will have the same effect. To read the full CNN story on Stephen and his work, click here.
Who knows what the future has in store for this remarkable young man! We had to share his story because wanting to help others in such a major way, and at such a young age, is a very special thing. We tip our hats to you, Stephen, and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. With bright minds like these popping up in the younger generation, we can certainly hope that finding the cure for cancer is not too far away!
