We first got to know Imerman Angels when we met its charming and
energetic founder Jonny (Imerman) at a conference a couple years ago.
Since then we've been amazed to discover that Jonny is literally
everywhere we go and takes his role as the Chief Mission Officer to the
limit. Including the fact that we have never seen him don a shirt that
didn't have his logo on it… ever!
Jonny, who was diagnosed with testicular cancer in his 20s, had lots of
support from friends and family but didn't know anyone in a similar
situation to his. So he founded Imerman Angels on this premise: "What if
every cancer fighter could talk to a cancer survivor, who not only had
beaten the same type of cancer, but who also was the same age and gender
as the fighter?” The cancer survivor would be an angel walking, living
proof that the fighter could win too.
Imerman Angels is for anyone dealing with cancer, from fighters and survivors, to caregivers and loved ones. Their philosophy of making connections as an act of empowering cancer patients is a simple but effective one. Just check out some of the testimonials on their website: http://www.imermanangels.org/testimonials.php.
