The East Texas Angel Network is a foundation established for the enhancement of the lives of families in East Texas whose child may be suffering from a serious or life-threatening disease.

Getting Started

ETAN was established in 1995 by Neal McCoy and his wife, Melinda, who both wanted to support the families of children with severe medical needs.

Giving Relief

For over two decades, ETAN has been cutting red tape and making funds available for hundreds of these families to pay off their secondary expenses.


The major fundraiser for ETAN is a benefit concert, golf tournament, and sponsor’s dinner held in the fall of each year.

Make a Difference

Eighty-five cents of every dollar received goes directly to the families assisted by the East Texas Angel Network.

The special guests donate time and travel expenses, while local hotels, merchants and restaurants donate goods and services.

The only expenses paid out of monies raised are for necessities to facilitate the fundraising event, and paying the salaries of ETAN personnel.
