Angelic Warrior Foundation, Inc. (AWF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was founded in June 2020, following the passing of Ms. Angelica “Angel” Duggins in May 2020, due to colon cancer. Angel battled for almost 3 years, and often expressed during her journey the desire to help other patients who didn’t have the support she had, or medical insurance.
Angel’s family founded AWF to honor both her wishes and her legacy. We are committed to raising awareness about colon cancer, while carrying on Angel’s legacy of compassion, generosity, and servitude.
Join us as we embark on this journey. Your interest, time, and donations will help us make a difference!
The mission of the Angelic Warrior Foundation is to increase colorectal cancer awareness, and to provide the emotional and financial support that patients, caregivers, and families need in order to thrive.
The Angelic Warrior Foundation’s vision is to help save lives and prevent premature deaths from colorectal cancer.
An unprecedented number of people under the age of 45 (the newest minimum age for colon cancer screening), are being diagnosed with colorectal cancer; therefore increasing the mortality rate of patients in this age bracket. We would like to decrease this number by bringing greater awareness and encouraging early screening (especially to those under age 50) who may be at high risk.
We would also like to see individuals , who are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, live happy, healthy, & productive lives with the love and support of their caregivers, family, friends, the medical community, & other community support persons. The Angelic Warrior Foundation is committed to providing a database of helpful resources, funding opportunities, and a networking system that connects patients and their families to available resources.
Local events to raise Colon Cancer awareness. Providing financial & emotional support to patients + their families. Emotional support includes cards, meals, and volunteering time to help meet the patients’ needs.
Serving local colon cancer patients and their families by collecting and donating clothing and shoes.
