Our Mentor Angel Process
We’ll ask you a few questions to start you on your way to being matched with someone seeking support.
Each applicant works with an Imerman Angels’ Cancer Support Specialist to get screened and trained.
Mentor Angels remain in the matching database and will be contacted when a compatible cancer fighter, previvor or caregiver seeking support registers for a match.
How do I know I'm ready to become a Mentor Angel?
If you are a former Support Seeker and you’re ready to give back to the community, you might be ready to be a Mentor Angel! You can always reach out with any questions by contacting us or calling 866-IMERMAN (463-7626).
What kind of activities and communication are involved?
Together Mentors and Mentees decide how they would like to keep in touch in a way that is convenient and comfortable. Some examples include: telephone, e-mail, video chat, instant messaging, social media, meeting face-to-face, etc. Starting with these forms of communication every relationship grows in its own unique way, always based on the values of building long-term relationships based on empathy and compassion.
