Imerman Angels is a federally registered 501(c )(3) not-for-profit organization providing one-on-one cancer support: connecting cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. Imerman Angels partners a person fighting cancer with someone who has beaten the same type of cancer. One-on-one relationships give a fighter the chance to ask personal questions and get support from someone who is uniquely familiar with their experience. The service is absolutely free and helps anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any cancer stage level, at any age, living anywhere in the world.

A history that dates back to 2005, the original event was based around a themed party celebrating the eighties and has now developed into an annual event that has hosted hundreds of attendees. 2009 was a huge step forward based on the addition of event manager, Adam Levy, and a dedicated steering committee of fifteen established and socially-connected professionals. The event raised nearly $4,000 for Imerman Angels through a silent auction of more than $13,000 in donated products and services and featured a keynote address from cancer-survivor Rynell Cook.

Thank you thank you thank you! You two are amazing and we’re so grateful for the outreach opportunity! Thanks for allowing me to share my own story and to talk about our mission too! Great event! — Rynell Cook, IA Business Manager
