Imerman Angels (“IA”) is a nonprofit organization that provides one-on-one cancer support by connecting cancer fighters, survivors, caregivers, those who are high risk, and others seeking support (each a “Support Seeker”) with volunteer-mentors who have experienced something similar and donates their time and energy to IA and to those seeking support (each a “Mentor Angel”). IA’s one-on-one support gives each person seeking support a chance to ask personal questions and express their worries and frustrations, while receiving encouragement and support from someone who is uniquely familiar with the challenges that they may face.
By requesting support from a Mentor Angel or seeking to become a Mentor Angel (each Support Seeker and Mentor Angel referred to as a “Participant”) through IA and/or www.ImermanAngels.org (the “Website”), you expressly indicate that you understand and agree with the following:
- The relationships established among any of the Participants are founded, and should be based, solely on psychosocial support and are not intended to be substitutes for professional treatment, advice or diagnosis. IA may refer Support Seekers to other agencies if IA personnel cannot find the appropriate match for the Support Seeker.
- Mentors Angels do not provide support as licensed medical or mental health/healthcare professionals. No Participant may recommend or endorse any specific medical or non-medical tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information to another Participant or otherwise give “medical’ advice to another Participant. Further, no Participant should ever construe anything relayed to them by any other Participant as medical advice, recommendation or opinion. Under no circumstance should any Participant solicit or offer professional, financial, medical, or other similar advice or assistance from or to, respectively, another Participant.
- You will always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding any medical condition, whether it be yours or another person’s. You will not disregard professional medical advice you have received from your doctors or delay in seeking professional medical advice because of a communication with another Participant or any IA officer, director, employee, or volunteer or because of something you have read on the Website.
- The content on the Website is only to be read and or used for informational purposes and is not intended to be a substitute for professional treatment, advice, or diagnosis. If at any time you have reason to believe you or a loved one may have a medical emergency or feel that you or a loved one need medical attention, please either call 911, go to the emergency room, and/or call your or their doctor, as appropriate, immediately.
We at Imerman Angels are excited that you have found your way to our support community and look forward to the relationship that we will share with you.
