Imerman Angels’ mission is to provide comfort and understanding for all cancer fighters, survivors, previvors and caregivers through a personalized, one-on-one connection with someone who has been there.
What We Do
Through its unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone seeking cancer support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor, previvor or caregiver who is the same age, same gender, and most importantly who has faced the same type of 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.
These one-on-one relationships give a cancer fighter or caregiver the chance to ask personal questions and get support from someone who has been there before. Mentor Angels can lend support and empathy and help cancer fighters, previvors and caregivers navigate the system, determine their options and create their own support systems. Frequently, caregivers experience feelings similar to those of the person facing cancer. Mentor Angels can relate while being sensitive to the experience and situation.
