Nanny agency helps mothers living with cancer

Posted: Updated:
TORONTO (WKOW) -- A nanny agency in Canada helps mothers with childcare while they undergo treatment for cancer.

While being treated for breast cancer six years ago, Audrey Guth encountered many young mothers with this struggle.  That is when she became committed to providing a solution for these women and created the Nanny Angel Network.  The Nanny Angel Network is a program that offers free professional childcare services to moms with cancer in the Toronto area.

Guth was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She says the first thing, as a mother, she thought about is her children when she heard the news; however, her children were adults.  But that got her to thinking about the many mothers who are diagnosed and still have young children.

Since 2008, the organization has helped more than 300 moms in and around Toronto.
