Memorial SloanJI’s biggest speech yet!  He flew to the big apple today to speak at the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in New York to spread the word about 1-on-1 cancer support to the nurses, social workers and nurse practitioners.

Founded in 1884, the center sees hundreds of thousands of patients annually and makes a mark in their 23 story building dedicated to cutting edge research.  Read here about their December 2009 news.

MSKCC also has a great section within their website on topics related to “When Treatment Ends” with tips on moving forward and a listing of their services for survivors.  With monthly lectures and support groups, MSKCC offers wholistic support for the cancer community.

Our mission at IA: beginning January 1, 2013, every cancer fighter in the United States will have free access to a cancer survivor within 24 hours of being diagnosed.  Supporters like MSKCC, who are open to learning and spreading the word about 1-on-1 cancer support, aid us in connecting to the fighters and survivors who benefit most from our mission.

handmadedetroitmittenImerman Angels took some time this week to spread the word about 1-on-1 cancer support to two cancer centers in the metro-Detroit area:  The Karmanos Cancer Institute and the University of Michigan Cancer Center.  The Institute supports over 100 physician-scientists, 300 researchers, five research programs and 10 core facilities.  This is a large center for research, including work in drug pathways, genetics and prevention.

Here are some of Karmanos Cancer Institute’s tips on breast cancer screening.

 

 The second stop was Ann Arbor.  The University of Michigan Health System is known for many things, including their skin cancer program. Check out this short video about the work that they are doing in stem cell research. Go BLUE!
