This is such an amazing nonprofit organization! I am uplifted by these children's stories. So much courage and strength. What positive attitudes! I love watching them get their 'Shine On'!!
My son is a survivor of a medulloblastoma (brain tumor) that took over the lives of our entire family when he was 12 years old, and then re-occurred when he was 15. He is now 30 years old and is doing very well. We are all forever grateful for organizations like Angelight Films, who do so much to shower light and hope into the lives of young cancer patients, interjecting happiness in a very sad and difficult time. We are huge fans of Angelight Films, because we know how special the work they do is. Their projects are full of energy and love for these beautiful children who need "Angels" in their lives.
I believe Angelight Films is truly an amazing organization! They impact the lives of so many children who have survived brain tumors and generously work hard to make these children's dreams come true. Children who experience brain and spinal chord tumors at such a young age must be so brave and have such amazing spirits. Angelight Films gives them a chance to express themselves and "just be kids," which is so special and valuable. My boyfriend is a 2-time cancer survivor and is very involved with Angelight, and I have heard nothing but good and inspiring things about this organization. I hope it will continue to grow and make an even greater difference in the world.
Angelight Films gives a voice to children in a difficult time and gives wings to their dreams. A friend is involved in this organization. He is a survivor and involved artistically. These are wonderful people working towards a noble mission.
A friend of mine is a survivor and a filmmaker, and he has nothing but great things to say about the work that Angelight Films does for children with brain and spinal cord tumors. These children have much to say and lots to contribute, and Angelight Films gives them a vehicle to express themselves. Bravo!
Angelight Films is such an amazing organization!!!! This is such an amazing idea and way to help kids with brain tumors. It's so thoughtful and really just incredible!!!!!
I am a two time brain cancer survivor and a filmmaker. I ran into Angelight Films representatives a year ago and instantly fell in love with what they do. They very much speak my language, and they immediately let me get involved within their community as a survivor and a filmmaker. Their founder, Stephanie Angel, has a pure and true heart for Children survivors of brain and spinal chord tumors, for filmmaking, and for people in general. This organization does amazing work and greatly impacts the lives of survivors and their families. I hope they grow and impact many more.
What this organization does for these children is phenomenal. A friend of mine volunteered there in the past and shared their work with me and I was inspired to be more optimistic even on my bad days because of these kids.I have watched the films and was moved by every single one of them. They are all so special in their own way and speak to us. Keep up the good work, Angelight Films!
In October of 2013, I met with Stephanie Angel with the hopes of becoming an intern. I had recently graduated from college, and wanted to get involved with a nonprofit organization that had an important social cause with personal and long-lasting results. After my meeting with Stephanie Angel, I quickly discovered that I had found one of those rare small nonprofit organizations, which is purely dedicated to its noble cause. It is an organization that I am proud to have been a part of.
Angelight Films consists of humble people who seek to encourage the talent of brave children, who have or are undergoing a traumatic experience. Within the initial meeting with a prospective Angelight Star, the child is acknowledge as a powerful leader with a strong message to tell the world, and that their crew is merely there to help them translate their ideas into film form. Over the course of a couple of months, strong bonds are made between the child and the crew, as the Angelight Star develops valuable skills during each stage of film production. Once a film is completed, a screening is held, where the child can share their work with their family, friends, and community.
Angelight Films is a one-time experience, but it has lasting effects. The children become stronger leaders and gain communicational, organizational, and disciplinary skills that are required in film production. The friendships formed during production are permanent, as Angelight Films never looses contact with their stars and their families.
I remember when I first found out about Angelight Films through the internet and was so inspired by the kids and the films that I knew I had to be a part of it. I reached out to Stephanie and met with her and loved it even more. I have been doing work for Angelight since then and I love every aspect of it. My favorite part of the whole process is meeting the children and seeing how much they shine throughout everything. They truly are special and I can't help but smile each time I watch Stephanie bond with them and help them see their worth. Angelight Films has truly opened doors for these kids and has helped them highlight their essence. Stephanie is truly an Angel and has made a platform for all children who have a dream and want to share it with the world. I am very proud to be a part of this organization and I am very excited for the future of Angelight Films.
