Peer to Peer Support

Be ‘someone who understands’ to someone going through cancer

We are excited to announce that ThriveNV is expanding our ability to help people within the Nevada cancer community by connecting them with others going through similar journeys and experiences. ThriveNV has partnered with Imerman Angels, a cancer support nonprofit providing personalized connections which enable one-on-one support to cancer patients, 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. 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 12,000 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 Nevada Cancer Coalition ThriveNV program and Imerman Angels will allow us to focus on the services that truly define our mission: to care, connect, and collaborate so Nevada’s cancer patients, survivors, previvors, and caregivers know they are not alone in their fight with cancer.

Becoming a Mentor Angel

The first step to joining the ThriveNV/Imerman Angels Mentor Program is ask those who would like to be a Mentor Angel to share your experiences and compassion with someone who is struggling with their own cancer journey.

Imerman Angels’ mission is to provide comfort and understanding for all cancer fighters, survivors, previvors and caregivers through a personalized, one-on-one connection with someone who has been there.
