(WJBK) - No one should have to face cancer alone.
That's Jonny Imerman's belief, and it led him to found Imerman Angels, which provides free personalized one-on-one cancer support for fighters, survivors and their caregivers.
Jonny was 26 when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Throughout his experience, Jonny was lucky enough to have loving support from his family and friends but had never met anyone his age who was a cancer survivor. He wanted to talk to someone just like him, someone who truly understood, and was intimately familiar with his experience. In short, he was looking for someone who had already faced the same type of cancer. This was the beginning of Jonny's vision and in 2003, it became a reality when he founded Imerman Angels.
Through Imerman Angels, you can be paired with someone who is the same age, same gender, and most importantly who has faced the same type of cancer.
