Imerman Angels was there for you at a time you needed support. Now, we need YOUR help to continue to provide our one-on-one cancer support services completely FREE to those in need. Help us help others just like you who will benefit from the connections and friendships they create through Imerman Angels.

Every single dollar you raise will help us positively impact more cancer fighters, previvors, survivors and caregivers all over the world. Give a fellow member of the cancer community the gift of one-on-one peer support.

We hope you will bring your friends and family out to celebrate YOU and your role as the heart of Imerman Angels. Teams and individuals have the opportunity to fundraise to ensure that our one-on-one cancer support services remain completely FREE to those in need.

Register, build your team and start fundraising 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.  

As Mentees and Mentor Angels, we want you to bring your family and friends to this event. Building a team and fundraising together is easy! Visit our Build a Team page for more information about why you should create a team and bring your community together with the Imerman Angels community!
