About Nells-Angels

The Janell Legier LaCombe Memorial Fund was created in 2001 to honor the life of its namesake. Janell passed away from Cancer on June 8, 2001. She left behind her husband of over thirty years, J.C. LaCombe Jr, and two sons Jay and Jeremy LaCombe. Her family and friends created the non-profit foundation to raise money to help other people who are fighting cancer.

Since its inception, Nell's Angels has raised and donated over $400,000 to people with cancer and to charities that help cancer patients. They raise money by hosting two fundraisers each year. The first Saturday in August they host a Co-Ed Softball Tournament/5k Fun Run and in the Spring a Couchon de-lait.

In the past Nell's Angels has donated money to Pointe Coupee Parish Cancer Services, Greater Baton Rouge Cancer Services, St. Jude Hospital, Leukemia/Lymphoma Society, The America Cancer Society, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, The National Marrow Donor Program, The Susan G. Komen for the Cure company, and directly to numerous individuals who actually have cancer.

Nell's Angels is a Louisiana based, non-profit corporation in good standing with the Louisiana Secretary of State. Just like cancer, we do not discriminate based on race, religion, income or sexual orientation. 100% of all money collected is distributed back to the community and all donations are tax deductible.
