Imerman Angels, the leading global one-on-one cancer support community and Chicago PR client, has been named a Scale Award recipient at the 2017 Creator Awards for their work in providing free personalized connections that enable one-on-one support for cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. The Scale Award, which includes a $180,000 grant, is given to established organizations that are ready to take their business to the next level.

395dfa9b1c7b1f8d70016ea9_1280x852

The event, hosted and sponsored by WeWork, received 600 applicants that were narrowed down to five Scale Award finalists who had the opportunity to pitch their business to a panel of judges and explain how and why they are ready to expand. In addition to Imerman Angels, Chicago nonprofit Bunker Labs and Detroit-based The Empowerment Plan took home top honors in the category.

Founded in 2006 by cancer survivor Jonny Imerman, Imerman Angels to date has enabled more than 34,000 connections in all 50 states and more than 60 countries. These one-on-one relationships provide a cancer fighter or caregiver the chance to ask personal questions and receive support from someone uniquely familiar with the experience. Recent medical studies have shown that psychosocial support during and after the cancer fight is crucial to quality of life.

“We are thrilled that our work over the past 11 years has been recognized through this large award,” says Ben Bornstein, Imerman Angels CEO and Executive Director. “This grant will allow us to scale our one-on-one cancer support services by expanding our presence in other US markets outside Chicago including Detroit, Los Angeles and New York, plus reach more people touched by cancer around the world by expanding our digital presence and hiring additional cancer support specialists, including those who speak other languages.”

In addition, other benefits of receiving this grant include expanding Imerman Angels’ network of partner organizations, and of course, ensuring that their services remain completely free to anyone seeking support so no one has to face cancer alone.

Arthur Murray Presents Dancing with Chicago Celebrities, held on Friday, March 10 at the Hilton Chicago, welcomed nearly 600 guests to the 12th annual, “Rock Around the Clock” themed gala to benefit the fight against breast cancer.

Local celebrities and corporate superstars, each paired with a professional partner from Arthur Murray Dance Centers, competed to help raise a record-setting $300,000. Net proceeds benefit organizations impacting Chicago’s fight against breast cancer through preventative research and access to care: A Silver Lining Foundation, University of Chicago Cancer Research, Lurie Cancer Center and City of Hope.

Jason Davis, former NFL player, was crowned 2017 Celebrity Superstar for his high-energy dance moves including his jaw dropping, signature triple flip. Lee Allison, The Lee Allison Company, earned a rousing ovation and took home the title of Corporate Challenge Dance Champion.

The Celebrity MVP trophy for highest fundraising went to NBC 5 TV’s Peggy Kusinski, who dedicated her dance to her sister Patty Kusinski Smith, who died after a fearless battle with breast cancer. Peggy raised an impressive $35,000 to break the celebrity fundraising record previously held by Lou Manfredini of WGN Radio.

Annually, the Dancing with Chicago Celebrities board gives the Katrina Rodriguez Morales Memorial Award to an Arthur Murray professional who has shown exceptional commitment to the event and the fight against breast cancer. This year, the award was presented to Nick Kosovich.

Wish Upon A Wedding Grants 100th Wish To Extraordinary Couple in Chicago
12814702_10153933789224330_8025941713943512337_n

Honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October

Wish Upon A Wedding, a national nonprofit organization that provides weddings and vow renewals for couples facing serious illness OR a life-altering circumstance in all 50 states, is proud to grant its 100th wish to couple Anne and Jon on Sunday, October 23 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel (221 N Columbus Dr.) in Chicago. The Chicago Chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding is proud to be the chapter handling this wish and honored that it is taking place in Chicago.

Anne and Jon first met online in 2008 after Anne had cp2_1425undergone a mastectomy to treat her Stage 0 breast cancer. Anne worried no one would ever love or want her in her post-treatment state. She was scared her physical appearance and her two sons from her previous marriage would cause people to look the other way. Anne’s eldest son who was born with a chromosomal disorder and is unable to speak, is wheelchair bound and completely dependent on Anne.

However, the opposite happened. Anne met Jon and recalls how he immediately and completely accepted her and the boys. “He just came right in and took all of it,” remembers Anne. In addition to Anne’s boys, now 15 and 9, the couple also has a 5-year-old son together.

Although the doctors told Anne the chances of her cancer returning were one in a million after her surgery, a routine scan in October 2014 found the contrary. Anne’s cancer had returned – Stage 4 Metastatic breast cancer. Through it all, Anne continues to remain positive, grateful and always smiling.

When asked what Jon loves most about Anne, he responded without hesitation, “She is amazing. She handles everything for everyone and always puts herself last. She never asks for herself. She is wonderful.” Anne and Jon’s relationship is built on an unbreakable trust, a boundless love and support system, and they are ready to exchange their vows on October 23.

“Granting our 100th wish is an exciting milestone for Wish Upon a Wedding,” says National President Alison Phillips. “Since our founding in 2010, we have been honored to help 100 couples and we look forward to helping grant wedding wishes to many more couples in need.”

The happy couple will say “I Do” during an intimate wedding ceremony organized by Wish Upon A Wedding Chicago Chapter at the Radisson Blu Hotel. Other participating vendors donating their services include Elysia Root Cakes, Carasco Photography, Estera Events, Aria Films, Makeup by Aga, Dimitra’s Bridal, Sarah Drake Design, Fleur, Rosemary Fanti, Elegant Event Lighting, Nimblewell, The Black Tux, Bonnie Cortez, Rosemary of Rosemary Salon and DJ Al Okyne of Okyne Media Lab.

“We are counting down the days until we can see the look on Jon’s face when he see’s Anne walking down the aisle, and can’t wait to watch as those closest to them get to celebrate the love and the family Anne & Jon have built,” says Bianca Hall of Estera Events. “To say we are honored to be part of this celebration is an understatement – we are absolutely overjoyed.”

Scleroderma is a chronic, often progressive, autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own body. The disease, which literally means “hard skin” can cause thickening and tightening of the skin. In some cases is causes serious damage to internal organs including the heart, lungs, kidneys, esophagus and gastrointestinal tract. These organs may slowly harden until they become ineffective. Some medicines and treatments can help with certain symptoms, but there is still no cure for scleroderma. The disease affects three to four times as many women as men. For more information visit www.scleroderma.org.

Advanced registration for the event is $30 for adults, $15 for youth ages 9-18, and $5 for children 8 and younger. On-site registration at the event is $35 for adults, $20 for youth ages 9-18, and $10 for children 8 and younger. Food, beverages and activities are included in the ticket price. Participants will be provided with a personal and team fundraising page upon registration, and are encouraged to set their own personal fundraising goal by receiving pledges from family and friends.

Imerman Angels and MyLifeLine.org Cancer Foundation announce a new partnership to bring social and emotional support services to more people impacted by cancer. Imerman Angels, a global nonprofit that provides free one-on-one support to cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers, is joining with MyLifeLine.org, an organization that empowers cancer patients and caregivers to build an online support community of family and friends through free, personalized websites.

Imerman Angels, a Molise PR client currently celebrating its 10-year anniversary, matches cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers with a Mentor Angel – a volunteer who has been through the same experience. Criteria including type of cancer, stage, age and lifestyle are all taken into account when making the matches.

MyLifeLine.org connects cancer patients and caregivers to their community of family and friends for social and emotional support by providing unique communication and stress reducing tools that allow patients and caregivers to share their journey and focus on healing.

Imerman Angels and MyLifeLine.org were both founded by young adults diagnosed with cancer, who realized during their fight that there was a void in the cancer community that needed to be filled: emotional and social support.

MyLifeLine.org founder Marcia Donziger was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when she was just 27 years old. She felt grateful, yet overwhelmed, by the number of calls she received from family and friends wanting an update on her condition. At times, she felt emotionally drained from repeating the same information over and over again. Marcia saw an opportunity to make a difference for other cancer patients, and began extending the benefit of a free, personal website to all cancer patients and caregivers through MyLifeLine.org.

Jonny Imerman, founder of Imerman Angels, was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 26. Throughout his experience, Jonny was lucky enough to have loving support from his family and friends, but he had never met anyone his age who was a cancer fighter or survivor. He wanted to talk to someone who truly understood what he was going through, who was intimately familiar with his experience. In short, he was looking for someone around the same age who had survived the same type of cancer. This was the beginning of Jonny’s vision, which became a reality when he founded Imerman Angels.

“To date, Imerman Angels and MyLifeLine.org have provided support to over 175,000 cancer fighters, survivors, caregivers and their friends and family members, and hope to reach thousands more through our combined efforts. This partnership will significantly broaden the community and reach of both organizations, allowing us to help thousands more of those whose lives have been affected by cancer. The potential impact is enormous,” says Imerman Angels CEO and Executive Director Ben Bornstein, a three-time cancer survivor.

“This partnership offers cancer patients and caregivers two ways to receive social and emotional support through referrals and resources from both organizations,” says Pete Sheehan, MyLifeLine.org CEO. “Imerman Angels provides one-on-one support which is incredibly beneficial to people impacted by cancer. MyLifeLine.org allows patients and caregivers to connect with their entire community for inspiration and encouragement, which is a one-to-many support model. Together we will be able to help a greater number of cancer patients find the type of support service that best meets their needs. Our combined goal is to help get people through their cancer journey and achieve a positive outcome.”
