The Paula Takacs Foundation is a Peer-to-Peer Partner of Imerman Angels, a global non-profit organization providing free, one-on-one emotional support to individuals, survivors and family members experiencing the challenges of cancer.
Imerman Angels’ mission is to provide comfort and understanding for all cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers through a personalized, one-on-one connection with someone who has been there.
Through their unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone, any age, any gender, anywhere and any cancer type 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.
Their service is absolutely free. Peer connections are made in person, by phone, or via email.
As a sarcoma survivor or caregiver, you have the power to provide comfort to others and create special relationships that can last a lifetime! Please consider volunteering as a Mentor Angel to help others needing support!
Each Mentor Angel completes a profile detailing their personal experience with cancer. More than 40 comprehensive criteria are detailed including demographic information, cancer history and treatment. All of your information is kept confidential and is never shared with anyone except the person you agree to support.
Each applicant works with a staff member of Imerman Angels to get screened and trained. Mentor Angels remain in the matching database and will be contacted when a cancer fighter or caregiver seeking support registers for a match.
