Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We believe in order to meaningfully address cancer support, we must understand and bridge gaps in access to care and resources. We recognize that although cancer does not discriminate in the lives it impacts, inequities in our healthcare system and social institutions create barriers in the way cancer support is accessed and cancer is prevented, diagnosed and treated.
Education, empathy and community building are paramount to providing inclusive and equitable cancer support for all. To best serve the needs of our community, our staff, Boards and volunteers will continue to respond, reflect and advance inclusivity and equity in our people and culture.
Imerman Angels is committed to building inclusive, safe spaces and creating a sense of belonging for those seeking cancer support. We are dedicated to providing a welcoming and impactful peer-to-peer community for all touched by cancer. As allies, we will leverage our resources for those marginalized by the healthcare system and provide a comprehensive psychosocial support experience.
Creating intentional and equity-minded peer-led cancer support for all.
Our team works diligently each year to ensure that we maximize our impact. Our Annual Reports spotlight the efforts and accomplishments that we make in the lives of our fighters, survivors, previvors and caregivers.
