Vanessa Kurtzer is working locally to spread the word about Imerman Angels. Courtesy of Vanessa Kurtzer Imerman Angels is seeking to expand its reach in the Tri-State through the work of Vanessa Kurtzer, a Symmes Township woman who recently became an Imerman Angels ambassador. Vanessa Kurtzer Vanessa Kurtzer quit the two part-time jobs she had at the time so she could be the primary caregiver for her husband and her girls, who were 10 and 8 at the time. "I yearned to connect with someone desperately who was also a wife with young kids," she said. Kurtzer went to a support group for caregivers, but she was 25 years younger than everyone else there, she said. "Nobody could connect with me one-on-one," she said. Kurtzer heard about Imerman Angels long after her family was past what she calls "the year of hell. She knew immediately she wanted to help. In addition to spreading the word about Imerman Angels here as an ambassador, Kurtzer has become a Mentor Angel for a woman in Chicago whose husband has the same type of cancer that Jamey Kurtzer did. "Vanessa has been unbelievable," Grunauer-Rawl said. Kurtzer is always there with words of encouragement and reassurance, Grunauer-Rawl said. Kurtzer, meanwhile, is working to spread the word about the free support that Imerman Angels provides. She organized a Sweet Treat Social at The Christ Hospital Cancer Center on Friday to pass out pastries and information about the organization. And, Kurtzer said, giving back as a Mentor Angel has meant a lot to her, too. "I get back 100 times more by being able to be that Mentor Angel," she said.
