Us TOO and Imerman Angels share the belief that no one should face cancer alone.
The toll-free Us TOO Prostate Cancer HelpLine 1-800-808-7866 (1-800-80-US-TOO) delivers a valuable service to those battling prostate cancer by providing “Someone to talk to … who understands.” All calls are initially answered by staff at the Us TOO home office. Upon request, callers can be matched with an Us TOO Prostate Cancer HelpLine response team volunteer who can provide answers from having experience or expertise in the same treatment or side effect. Connections are typically made within hours.
Us TOO is excited to be partnering with Imerman Angels to provide additional peer-to-peer support services to the prostate cancer community. CLICK HERE to read the press release. We invite you to register to be matched with a Mentor Angel, or to volunteer to be a Mentor Angel. The process of receiving a match takes just a few days.
While Imerman recognizes that each cancer and life situation is unique, their goal is to connect cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers with “Mentor Angels” – a cancer survivor or caregiver who is as similar as possible in age, gender, and most importantly, cancer experience. Mentor Angels give cancer fighters and caregivers the chance to ask personal questions and receive support from a peer who has been down the same road before.
