Angela has always been passionate about children and that passion inspired Love That Baby, a clothing line she founded in 1998. While making a clothing donation to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles she was asked to volunteer with the patients. Angela, along with my dog Audrey, began to make bedside visits to children staying in hospitals throughout LA. She noticed immediately that despite their illness the children had a radiant quality that added a gracefulness to their tremendous courage.
Then in 2012 Angela’s world was turned upside down when her mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She left Los Angeles and moved to Arkansas to care for her during her yearlong battle. Although she missed the children terribly she realized that they had given me a precious gift. Being with them prepared her to cope with her mom’s illness and the many hospital stays. When her mom passed and she went back to Los Angeles it was the children who helped me heal.
Angela’s Angels was founded to give back to the amazing children who helped Angela so profoundly.
