MAC is also recruiting mentors. Each mentor applicant completes a profile detailing their personal experience with cancer, and works with an Imerman Angels staff member to get screened and trained. Mentor Angels are placed in a matching database and are contacted when a cancer fighter or caregiver seeking support registers for a match and has had that particular experience.
About Imerman Angels:Imerman Angels was created in the belief that no one should have to face cancer alone and without the necessary support. Through a unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone experiencing cancer who is seeking support with someone just like them – a "Mentor Angel". A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who most importantly has faced the same type of cancer. The service is absolutely free and helps anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any cancer stage, at any age, and living anywhere in the world. Mentor Angels may lend support and empathy, and help cancer fighters and caregivers navigate the system, determine their options, and create their own support systems.
