The Angel Fund is dedicated to giving financial and social support to families residing in Northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan whose children under 21 years of age are receiving treatment for cancer or bone marrow failure. The Angel Fund is for the family that must bear the burden of enormous medical and related expenses in an effort to cure their child of a life threatening disease.
The Katie Beckett Program is a special eligibility process that allows certain children with long-term disabilities, mental illness, or complex medical needs, living at home with their families, to obtain a ForwardHealth card. Children who are not eligible for other Medicaid programs because the income or assets of their parents are too high may be eligible for Medicaid through the Katie Beckett Program. A child may be eligible for this source of Medicaid even if they are currently covered under a private health insurance policy.
