Your fundraising and contribution will help us advance our mission to provide personalized connections that enable one-on-one support among cancer fighters, previvors, survivors and caregivers. Imerman Angels' services are absolutely free and partner anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any stage, at any age, living anywhere in the world with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor, previvor or caregiver who most importantly has faced the same type of cancer.

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.

Thank you for participating in the 2020 Brunch Run 5K & Walk, and for raising critical funds to help us ensure that no one faces cancer alone! When you register, you will receive your own unique fundraising page to share with family and friends. Get started today!

Here's how your fundraising will continue to help others:

$50 - Help create community engagement materials for our healthcare partners and providers. This information is critical to helping us educate the community and spread awareness for our services so that we can support more people during their cancer journey.

$75 - Support Imerman Angels’ Hospital Outreach Events where an Imerman Angels’ Ambassador is onsite at a medical center with cancer fighters and their caregivers to help facilitate a match with a Mentor Angel.

$100 - Supply Training for Imerman Angels’ Ambassadors, volunteers that spreads awareness with clinicians in healthcare settings and the public-at-large about Imerman Angels’ free services, so that people receive the support they need as they face cancer.

$350 - Support a Match through underwriting costs associated with providing a match between a cancer fighter, survivor, previvor and caregiver to a Mentor Angel so that no one faces cancer alone.
