NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is partnering with Imerman Angels, an organization that was founded in 2003 on the belief that no one should have to face cancer alone and without the necessary support. Through their unique matching process, Imerman Angels matches anyone seeking cancer support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who is the same age, same gender, and most importantly who has faced the same type of cancer as some of our patients.
Imerman Angels is a free, peer to peer support system, which helps anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any cancer stage level, at any age, living anywhere in the world.
These one-on-one relationships give a cancer patient 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.
For more information, patients can contact Imerman Angels directly via phone: 1 (866) IMER-MAN (463-7626) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
