About our Founders

At 26 years old, living in Michigan, Jonny Imerman was diagnosed with testicular cancer. As he began his fight against the disease, love and support poured in from friends and family. But what was missing was the understanding and insight of someone who had been there before.

In the name of sharing his experience to help others, Imerman Angels was born. Jonny worked to create a community based in empathy and connection, free and available to anyone whose life had been affected by cancer, so no one faces cancer alone.

John May co-founded Imerman Angels with Jonny Imerman and formerly served as the Chairman of the Board. Inspired to make sure no one faces cancer alone, John’s primary role is supporting Imerman Angel’s strategic plan while making sure our program and operation support our mission on a daily basis.
