At 26 years of age, Jonny Imerman was diagnosed with testicular cancer and began his fight against the disease. Throughout his experience, Jonny was lucky enough to have loving support from his family and friends but 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. He was looking for someone who had already beaten 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 its unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone seeking cancer support with someone just like you — a “Mentor Angel." A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or survivor’s caregiver who is the same age, same gender, and — most important — is someone who has beaten the same type of cancer. A Mentor Angel is walking, talking, living proof, and inspiration that cancer can be beaten.
Imerman Angels' 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.
Sticky created this video for the inaugural Wings of Hope Gala for Imerman Angels, which provides one-on-one support for cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers. The video honors Howard Tullman, CEO of start-up incubator 1871. A member of Imerman Angels' board of directors, Mr. Tullman was presented with The Wings of Hope Award by Attorney General Lisa Madigan, for his continued excellence in inspiring others, contributing to the cancer community, and for going above and beyond to help those in need of cancer support. The event, held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and emceed by WGN TV's Dina Bair, raised $325,123.
