Weekly Pair-Up Spotlight: Thankful for an Angel
This past week, we had an overwhelming number of people reach out for 1-on-1 support. Typically, we see a decline around the holidays due to the fact that most people are with their families and/or traveling and out of town. To our surprise, over 27 new cancer fighters registered online over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend!
A woman living in Chicago was recently diagnosed with stage III colon cancer. She’s 60 years old and her daughter told her all about Imerman Angels! After she registered online, we were able to find her the perfect match in our network! We paired her up with another woman living in Tuscon, AZ who beat stage III colon cancer nearly four years ago! The cancer fighter was so thankful to meet another woman who could help her come up with the appropriate questions to ask her oncologist. She was so overwhelmed when she was diagnosed; her whole world was turned upside down. With the help of her new angel, she’ll get the emotional and peer support that she needs to stay strong during her upcoming fight against colon cancer!
On behalf of everyone at the IA office, we’re very thankful that we were able to provide hope and inspiration to everyone who contacted Imerman Angels this past week!
