THE STORY:

Hello everyone,

I'm running my tenth marathon in five years  in support of Imerman Angels.  In reflecting on the last four years  of running with Team IA and why I keep deciding to run to support IA, I guess it comes down to community.  While I am not a cancer survivor, my family has lost several members to cancer including my grandfather, my aunt, my uncle and we also have several family members who have faced cancer and survived.

Over the last 4 years I have had a front row seat to witness the power and strength Imerman Angels gives to people fighting cancer and their caregivers.  The strength comes from a very simple premise: you are not alone.  I have witnessed cancer fighters show unbelievable strength in the face of their greatest challenge while drawing on the strength of their Mentor Angel who is the one person in their support group that can say "I've been where you are, I've fought your fight, and together we will beat cancer because I've already done it and so can you."  That person who knows exactly what you are going through and who is living proof of light at the end of the tunnel is nothing short of empowering. 

Another fact I've learned is that everyone has been touched by cancer in some way.  Everyone.  So in a sense, everyone is part of the cancer fighting community.  Imerman Angels brings the strength of thousands of Mentor Angels across the globe, an incredible group of compassionate Support Specialists to match fighters and mentors, and an amazing leadership group focused solely on building the support community that is Imerman Angels.

..............and because of donations like yours, this strength and power is passed on to someone fighting cancer completely for free.  Join me in supporting Imerman Angels.  Together we can do so much more than any one of us can on our own.

Thanks again for your support!
