Earth Angels
Believe Foundation


Located in the Hudson Valley of New York, we are a non profit organization that raises money through fund raising events for local people and their families, affected by cancer. We help cancer patients and their families financially. Funds raised goes to help cover medical bills, food, clothes, travel and bereavement. By taking these burdens off, cancer patients can concentrate on healing. From 2019-present we have raised over $40,000

From 2000-2019, we raised over $250,000 for ACS's Relay for Life. We continue to spread our wings for others by doing an annual butterfly release for Patterson Relay for Life.


Our foundation was started in memory of foundation President Gina Sevigny’s mother, Rose Marie Emerson, in memory of Danielle May, daughter of  Sue Fitzpatrick, and in honor of cancer warrior Cathy Servodio. Today we honor and remember all affected by cancer in the Hudson Valley, as shown below.
