We are excited to announce that Elephants and Tea is expanding our ability to help people within the AYA cancer community by connecting them with others going through similar journeys and experiences. Elephants and Tea has partnered with Imerman Angels, a cancer support nonprofit in its 14th year of providing personalized connections which enable one-on-one support to cancer fighters, survivors, previvors and caregivers across the U.S. and around the world.
Imerman Angels is unique in that one-on-one peer support is the sole focus of the organization — something that Elephants and Tea sees as a huge value-add to our community. These services are always completely free and are available via phone or internet. Imerman Angels also brings other benefits to this partnership, including services in Spanish, support services for caregivers and other loved ones, a database of more than 11,000 Mentor Angels representing over 145 types of cancer, and dedicated Cancer Support Specialists who can find the perfect mentor for anyone seeking support.
The partnership between Elephants and Tea and Imerman Angels will allow us to focus on the services that truly define our mission: to help AYA patients, survivors and caregivers know they are not alone in their fight with cancer.
The first step in building out this new Elephants and Tea and Imerman Angels Mentor, one-to-one support network is ask those who would like to be a Mentor Angel to share your experiences and compassion with somoene who is struggling with their own cancer journey.
Once we have built our database of Mentor Angels from Elephants and Tea, we will open up the request for those in the AYA cancer community who need support from an Angel.
Any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information or to volunteer to help us further our mission.
