Shannon's Angels


During Shannon Morgan Lisk’s battle with ovarian cancer, she made it her mission to help the women around her. She became aware that many women undergoing treatment alongside her, were also struggling to take care of their families. Her desire to help, while spreading joy and happiness came during her favorite time of year - the holiday season. She wanted these women to experience a magical Christmas with their families. She recruited her friends and worked tirelessly to make this happen.

Shannon’s Angels is an organization committed to continuing Shannon’s work. Your donation will enable us to reach out to women currently being treated at the UK Markey Cancer Center this holiday season. We want Shannon’s beautiful spirit to continue to touch the lives of ovarian cancer patients and their families. Shannon’s Angels is established through the Blue Grass Community Foundation, which offers groups in Kentucky a convenient, simple way to organize charitable giving.
