Partnership Expands Outreach and Information for Patients Seeking Allies in Fight Against Cancer
PLAINSBORO, N.J. (PRWEB) May 05, 2016
CURE Media Group, the nation’s leading digital and print media enterprise focused on patients with cancer, today announced a new collaboration with Imerman Angels to expand outreach and emotional support for patients of all ages battling any form of cancer anywhere in the world.
“Imerman Angels provides an emotional lifeline to patients and families facing the challenges of cancer diagnosis and treatment,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president of CURE Media Group. “An alliance with CURE’s Advocacy Spotlight Partnership program will give more patients access to valuable emotional support while providing easier access to medical information patients and their families so desperately need.”
Imerman Angels was launched in 2003 after its founder, Jonny Imerman, was diagnosed with testicular cancer at age 26 and then struggled to find someone who truly understood and was familiar with his experience. Using a database with contact information from thousands of cancer survivors dedicated to providing one-to-one support, the nonprofit agency matches anyone seeking cancer support with a “Mentor Angel” who is the same age and gender, and has faced the same type of cancer. Mentor Angels lend support and empathy, and offer assistance navigating the healthcare system and treatment options.
“This partnership underscores the goal of our Advocacy Spotlight Partnership program,” added Hennessy. “We’re dedicated to helping all patients, families and physicians find the resources and support they need. Partnering with Imerman Angels means more people will be helped and inspired.”
