Imerman Angels

Imerman Angels
Posted in:

When Jonny Imerman was diagnosed with testicular cancer at age twenty-six, he had never met anyone his age who was a cancer survivor, and he wanted to talk to someone who had faced the same type of cancer. To provide that for others, he founded Imerman Angels. The nonprofit matches people who have cancer with survivors of the same cancer. It also matches caregivers and those who have lost someone to cancer with people who have had the same experience. It tries to match people in similar phases of life so that there’s a deeper understanding of needs. Imerman Angels has matched people in more than ninety countries with mentors. You can sign up and find or become a mentor through its website. My wife found her Imerman Angel to be an invaluable support.
