At the young age of 26, Jonny Imerman contracted testicular cancer. He searched for others in his age group that could provide him with information, comfort, camaraderie and friendship. Unfortunately, the well was dry. Jonny fought his disease without the support he had hoped to find. Though he won his battle with cancer, his relationship with the disease had just been formed.

Through his experiences, Jonny decided to create a non-profit organization, Imerman Angels. Its mission is to ensure that others would not have to face their particular form of cancer alone. Jonny's organization matches a cancer fighter/survivor with an individual (Mentor Angel) who has triumphed over the same type of cancer.

Today, more than 4,000 cancer survivors and 1,500 caregivers are part of his ever-expanding network, and their outreach extends to more than 60 countries.

Jonny has been recognized and interviewed throughout the multi-media world, including Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, "Oprah and Friends" with Dr. Oz, Men's Health, ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN and countless others. In 2012, alone, Jonny received  a CNN Hero Award, Chicago's Best of the Best Award and the Susan G. Komen "Pink Tie Guy" Award to name but a few.

Please join us for this hour with a remarkable individual, Jonny Imerman. 7pm eastern on Because Hope Matters Radio with co-hosts Maryann Makekau and Rob Harris.
