BENEFITING: Imerman Angels
EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2017
Hello everyone and thank you for supporting Imerman Angels one-on-one support. This year I decided to run the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K for Team Imerman Angels.
For those who are new to Imerman Angels, our misson is to provide personalized connections that enable one-on-one support among cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. 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 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.
I joined Imerman Angels as a Bi-lingual Cancer Support Specialist in Febuary 2017 – matching cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers with Mentor Angels. I was drawn to the mission and sparked by a passion to help others. While I had never been personally affected by cancer when I first came to Imerman Angels, the mission hit home when my cousin was diagnosed with liver cancer a couple of months later. I am proud to help those facing cancer on behalf of my cousin's battle.
My goal is to fund as many matches as possible between a Mentor Angel and a person currently facing cancer - a fighter, survivor or caregiver. Each time one of these matches is made, it costs the organization approximately $350 (the service is free to support seekers). And that is where you can help - your donation will directly help fund a match so that someone impacted by cancer can receive the help they need at the time they need it most. So that no one faces cancer alone.
Thank you for your consideration in helping me create as many matches as possible.
