THE STORY:

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*** R.I.P Angeline Smith & Stanford Smith
