Why Brunch With Us?
Imerman Angels is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Chicago, providing comfort and understanding for all cancer fighters, survivors, previvors and caregivers through a personalized, one-on-one connection with someone who has been there. The service is absolutely free and helps anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any cancer stage level, at any age, living anywhere in the world. The guests of honor at this event are our Mentees (people who seek support) and Mentor Angels (survivors, previvors and caregivers who give support to those in need). Come help us celebrate and advance our mission to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
