Stuff About Me:

I really appreciate that you have made it to my fundraising page.  There are so many reason that I have chosen to run/raise money for Imerman's Angels! 

A while back my grandma and grandpa were diagnosed with Bladder Cancer.  My grandmother died from it and I never really knew what she was going through.  I was there for her physically and told her I loved her but what could I say that would reassure her things would be ok if I didn't really know if things would be ok.  I really wish I had known about Imerman's Angels back then because she would have had the support of someone that was going through her same fight!

When my grandpa was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer he never told a soul.  I think he didn't want to have us worry.  He survived Cancer but oh my gosh what a lonely feeling that had to have been to be alone in your fight.  I also wish he had known about the large support system that Imerman's Angels provides. 

More recently my sister's adopted mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, she knew about Imerman's Angels and got a mentor (Cancer Survivor)!  She is now a cancer survivor and she didn't have to fight it alone.  I believe a support system is essential, even with a loving family and friends it's always good to have someone who's gone through your same fight and can coach you along and give you hope. 

***I really appreciate your help, it means a lot to me and more importantly to the cancer fighters it will help***
