Uber Health
Website: www.uber-health.com
Uber Health--a spinoff of Uber, the popular service in 
which drivers use their own cars to transport others--
is working with medical facilities that are willing to 
arrange patients transportation in order to avoid costly 
missed appointments. A health care provider books the 
patient's ride, either as needed or for the future; multiple 
rides can be booked at once. At booking and again at the 
time of the ride, the patient is notified via text or phone 
of the driver's approach. While a patient is en route to 
the appointment, the provider can track his or her location 
on a map. It's also HIPPA-compliant, meaning that medical 
details stay private and few Uber employees have access 
to that information

Imeran Angels--One on One Cancer Support
Headquarters:

Chicago, IL   60606
Phone: 866-IMERMAN (463-7626)
Email: info@imermanangels.org
Website: https://imermanangels.org
Through our unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone, any age, 
any gender, anywhere and any cancer type seeking support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who most importantly 
has faced the same type of cancer.
​&
Our service is absolutely free and helps any-one touched by any type of cancer, at any cancer stage level, at any age, living anywhere in the world.
&
These one-on-one relationships give a cancer fighter or caregiver the chance to ask personal questions and get support from someone who has been there before. Mentor Angels can lend support and empathy and help cancer fighters and caregivers navigate the system, determine their options and create their own support systems. Frequently, caregivers experience feelings similar to those of the person facing cancer. Mentor Angels can relate while being sensitive to the experience and situation.
