One-on-One Cancer Support
No One Should Fight Cancer Alone
The MPN Research Foundation is excited to announce a new partnership with Imerman Angels (IA), a one-on-one support service aimed at connecting “Mentor Angels” with cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. Through our partnership, these services are available to all MPN patients and caregivers, regardless of stage you are at in your cancer journey.
Mentor Angel connections are made all across the United States, as well as internationally, and are based on match criteria including gender, lifestyle, age, and cancer experience. Through the world’s largest peer-to-peer database, Imerman Angels is able to help cancer fighters and caregivers create their own systems of mutual support.
“We could not be more excited about this partnership with MPNRF,” says Jackie Herigodt, Director of Programs and Outreach for Imerman Angels. “The Foundation works tirelessly to ensure that those who are impacted by MPNs have a full breadth of support, which makes this collaboration so vital to us. Together, we can reach many more people.”
Both the MPN Research Foundation and Imerman Angels share the belief that no one should face cancer alone. IA’s free services help anyone touched by any type of cancer, anywhere in the world, and at any stage. Whether you were diagnosed 30 days ago or 30 years ago, Imerman Angels can help connect you to our growing MPN community.
Through their unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone, any age, any gender, anywhere and any cancer type seeking support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who most importantly has faced the same type of cancer.
Their service is absolutely free and 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 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.
