I'm proud to be fundraising for Imerman Angels for the 2017 Chicago Marathon. Last year was the first year I ran as a part of Team Imerman Angels and the donations you provided furthered the mission of the organization. As part of the Professionals Board, I've been introduced to and worked alongside the same people who have utilized IA's services. Their stories are powerful and propelled me to run for them again.
How your donation will make a difference:
For every $350 raised, one cancer fighter or caregiver will receive FREE support. What does this mean? Here's how IA defines the importance of their services: 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'm asking for your support: I can't do this without your help! Together, we can make our mark on cancer, a positive one. We can provide people with the support that they need. Support when their situation seems dire, support when things are looking up, and support when things don't turn out as planned. Every dollar helps, so give what you can!
Thank you for your support!
