As a three-time breast cancer survivor, Angela Baker understands all too well the challenges faced when completing cancer treatments.
First diagnosed in 2003, Angela has fought multiple bouts with metastatic breast cancer, while continuing to work full-time and as a single mom. Even with a leave of absence, Angela had a lot on her plate.
One day, Angela received a call. A woman reached out to ask for a ride to the doctor. This woman’s children could not help take her to her appointments and the treatments would be extremely draining, she needed someone not only to drive her, but to support her through these unpleasant appointments.
Angela was there for her. She spent 5 hours with this woman through several major appointments and it was then that Angela realized her passion and Angel in Disguise Inc. was founded.
Angel in Disguise serves to take people battling cancer, affectionately called VIDAS (Victorious, Inspired, Delicate, Angel Survivor), to their doctor appointments. Not only does Angel in Disguise drive them to the doctor, but they also go to the appointment with them in order to support them in any way they can.
Whether that’s offering emotional support, helping them walk, or helping them understand the doctor’s diagnosis or instruction, Angel in Disguise makes the impossible possible so VIDAS’ can Live Life Now and get the treatment they need.
Angel in Disguise has helped many VIDAS’ over the lifetime of the organization through challenging times, including during Covid-19.
Vivian is the Angel in Disguise 2017 Kia Sorento that transports our V.I.D.A.S. The name Vivian was chosen because it means life, and that is what AID inspires. Vivian joined the AID family in 2019, after the other V.I.D.A.S car little Red stopped working. AID made short videos campaigns, sent letters to car dealerships, and the community, to no avail for help to replace little Red. The founder, being determined to get a replacement vehicle, decided to dig into her personal savings, to put down a large down payment in order to keep the payments to a minimum. And, the rest is history. Vivian continues to add to the over 21,000 miles for our V.I.D.A.S. “Making the impossible,Possible”
