Jasper Health and Imerman Angels Partner to Match Jasper Members with Cancer Care Mentors
Imerman Angels to provide Jasper’s nearly 10,000 Members with the opportunity to receive one-on-one guidance from cancer survivors through a unique matching process.
New York and Chicago (PRWEB), October 05, 2021 — Jasper Health, an intelligent digital platform that provides end-to-end care guidance and navigation for people living with cancer, and Imerman Angels, a non-profit organization that matches cancer survivors with people who are newly diagnosed, today announce a partnership to connect cancer care mentors with Jasper Members to improve their quality of life.
Serving those living with cancer is a shared mission of Jasper and of Imerman Angels, and this partnership will add one more way that Jasper Members can connect to care—through a one-on-one relationship with a cancer survivor who has been there. Research has shown that this type of peer support positively impacts resilience, quality of life, and emotional stress.
“Imerman Angels is thrilled to partner with Jasper to provide continued support to the cancer community.” says Stephanie Lieber, Executive Director of Imerman Angels. “We share a commitment with Jasper to ensure that cancer is never a solitary experience. We look forward to providing crucial psychosocial support to the Jasper community so that no one faces cancer alone.”
Jasper Health has nearly 10,000 recently diagnosed Members on its platform today tracking symptoms, medications, treatments and appointments. Its personalized guidance capabilities contextually surface educational materials, recommended actions and digital interventions. Through this partnership, Jasper Members have access to another important benefit, that of an understanding and empathetic mentor.
Adam Pellegrini, CEO and Co-Founder of Jasper Health commented, “At Jasper, we are committed to improving the lives of those with cancer through the most meaningful support. We are extremely impressed with the mentoring community at Imerman Angels and eager to make it easy and seamless for our Members to get the type of understanding support that may not be available from their friends, family or caregivers.”
