Imerman Angels was created on the belief that no one should have to face cancer alone and without the necessary support. Our mission is to provide personalized connections that enable one-on-one support among cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. Through our unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone, any age, any gender, anywhere and any cancer type seeking support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who most importantly has faced the same type of cancer. Our 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.
