A helping hand for mothers battling cancer

A program known as the Nanny Angel Network helps out mothers battling cancer by providing child care for their children.

It was founded by Audrey Guth, a businesswoman who once battled cancer herself.

When going through treatment, Guth said she came to the realization that "this is not a place for kids."

She then used her business background to launch the network, which sends volunteer nannies to help out mothers in need.
