The City of Angels Just Gained a Few More
Imerman Angels 1-on-1 Cancer Support Organization Expands to Los Angeles, Announces New Regional Director
With a special launch party on Sunday, April 12 (during National Cancer Control Month)
Imerman Angels, a 1-on-1 cancer support organization based in Chicago, is proud to announce the official launch of a Los Angeles chapter, now their third, led by Los Angeles resident and the newly named Regional Director, Jordyn Goodman.
Launched in Chicago in 2006 by testicular cancer survivor Jonny Imerman, Imerman Angels is a global cancer community that has enabled more than 10,000 cancer support connections in all 50 states, and more than 60 countries.
Goodman has spent the majority of her life in Los Angeles, having relocated with her family to Calabasas, California at the age of five. After graduating from the University of Arizona she landed a job working for Suzanne Somers focusing on revolutionary alternative medicine. She comments, “After losing my father to his battle with cancer in 2013, I became more passionate about empowering and educating younger generations to embrace health and wellness. I am so honored to be working with Imerman Angels and am excited to help the city of angels gain a few more.”
Dr. Prashant K. Chawla, the Director of Breast & Women’s Imaging at Providence Tarzana Hospital and Tarzana Women’s Imaging Center, and a member of the Imerman Angels Los Angeles Advisory Board says,
“As a physician, despite the state-of-the-art medical care we can provide our patients, I know that emotional support is just as important and is often lacking. Imerman Angels mission to enable 1-on-1 cancer support is a niche that has yet to be filled in the Los Angeles community. These powerful connections provide cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers hope that they can overcome the battle against cancer, and a network that strengthens them all. I am honored to welcome Imerman Angels to Los Angeles.”
