Amy’s Angels has provided over $1.4 million in support to over 500 CT families
(HARTFORD, CT) – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) honored the Simsbury-based non-profit, Amy’s Angels, after the organization donated $15,000 to help a struggling Connecticut family secure home nursing care for a loved one with muscular dystrophy.
“Amy’s Angels has set a gold standard for what it means to give back, to care, and to help others. After suffering their own tragedy, Bob and his wife, Michelle have dedicated themselves to providing direct support and significant relief to individuals and their families during their darkest times,” said Blumenthal. “The support they provide will allow these families and individuals to simply focus on their health and well-being, and not the financial strain that comes with serious illness or injury.”
Founded by Bob Fiondella in January 2014, Amy’s Angels honors the memory of Fiondella’s cousin, Amy Bochman, a 33-year-old single mother who passed following a battle with breast cancer in December 2013. Amy’s Angels provides short- and long-term assistance to individuals and their families dealing with the debilitating effects of serious illness or injury. To date, Amy’s Angels has raised approximately $2 million and has provided more than $1.4 million in support to more than 500 Connecticut families.
