Are you a cancer fighter, survivor, previvor or caregiver looking for one–on–one support?
Through our unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners individuals seeking cancer support with a Mentor Angel — a cancer previvor, survivor or caregiver who has been in their shoes. These one-on-one relationships inspire hope and offer the chance to ask personal questions and receive support from someone who is uniquely familiar with the experience. Mentor Angels can lend support and empathy while helping cancer fighters and caregivers navigate the system, determine their options and create their own support systems. Support is also provided to those who have lost someone to cancer and is looking to speak to someone who has lost someone to cancer.
The service is absolutely free and helps anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any cancer stage, at any age, living anywhere in the world. Each applicant speaks personally with a staff member of Imerman Angels and all Mentor Angels are properly screened and trained.
