Imerman Angels Mission

Imerman Angels carefully matches and individually pairs a person touched by cancer (a cancer fighter or survivor) with someone who has fought and survived the same type of cancer (a Mentor Angel). Cancer caregivers (spouses, parents, children and other family and friends of fighters) also receive 1-on-1 connections with other caregivers and survivors. These 1-on-1 relationships inspire hope and offer the chance to ask personal questions and receive support from someone who is uniquely familiar with the experience.

Imerman Angels and Hegele Logistic

Awareness is key for Imerman Angels. In order to help spread the word we have equipped our transportation fleet with Imerman Angels logos and promotional material. Due to the nature of our business, our vehicles are parked at hospitals or even cancer centers every day. Where else could you create awareness for a cancer support group? In June, 2012, we celebrated the Grand Opening of our new logistics center in Wood Dale, IL. We were honored to have Jonny Imerman as our key note speaker. In December 2012, Hegele Logistic was honored to receive the 2012 Angels Award for its dedication and commitment to Imerman Angels.

Hegele Logistic received the Angel Award for Community Outreach

Hegele Logistic received the Angel Award for Community Outreach at the Imerman Angels’ Wings of Hope Gala in 2014. The award was given for supporting Imerman Angels by equipping its fleet of trucks with the Imerman Angels logo and enlisting the help of all of their employees to continually spread the word about Imerman Angels. This movie was shown at the gala when the award was presented on stage. A WGN interview took place to promote the gala and featured Hector Nunez (IA COO) as well as Gosia Kochanski (Hegele Logistic). They discussed their business partnership in this interview.
