RESOURCES

Imerman Angels - imermanangels.org

Sometimes the best therapy is just talking to someone
who's been there. Imerman Angels connects cancer
fighters, survivors, caregivers, and those with cancer
predisposition with " Mentor Angels " - volunteers
who share the same, or similar, experiences. Mentor
Angels provide a chance to ask personal questions
and receive support from a peer who has been down
the same road. The service is absolutely free and
available for those touched by any cancer, at any age,
living anywhere in the world!

SELF-ADVOCACY
Abridge - abridge.com

Why leave all the details behind when you leave the
doctor's office, or settle for a printed visit summary
that only tells half the story? With the Abridge app,
you record your health care as it happened, so you
can take your doctor's advice home with you. The
app pulls out medically relevant concepts from the
appointments so it's easy to go back and review
the information or share with your loved ones. We
recommend it as a tool everyone should use to help
manage their care.

improving the experience of young adults with cancer
