Mercury Insurance | December 21, 2022
Mercury Insurance has been helping people through the most difficult of times for more than 60 years. Mercury's unwavering commitment to its customers hasn't changed since it first opened its doors in 1962, and over the years that promise to do the right thing has expanded to include a variety of programs through the company's Mercury Cares initiative.
Mercury Cares was developed to support causes, organizations and individuals that go above and beyond to serve their communities. This desire to help and support everyday heroes led Mercury Cares to The Bear Fund and Cancer Support Community, who introduced us to an incredible young woman who is the personification of hope, determination and the power of positivity – Emma Frommeyer.
Emma is, in many ways, a typical teenager. She loves music, makeup and hanging out with friends, but there is one thing that sets her apart from most teenagers – Emma has a brain tumor and is fighting for her life.
Since being diagnosed with cancer, Emma hasn't had the chance to do the things a 13-year-old should be able to do, The Bear Fund has really been there for Emma and the family, providing gas cards to help get Emma to treatment, which is an hour and a half each way. And Mercury showed how much they care when they gifted a dream to trip to Los Angeles so Emma could see one of her favorite music artists and enjoy some beach time with her family. We are so thankful for the joy that it's brought the family,said Trista Conner, Emma's aunt.
Mercury produced a series of videos sharing Emma and her family's story. These inspirational videos will allow viewers to get to know this amazing young lady and watch her journey, as she and her family show the world what it means to look on the bright side of life, even when it seems like the odds are against you.
"Mercury Cares partners with like-minded organizations that are committed to providing valuable services to the customers and communities we help protect, We're proud we can partner with the Bear Fund to help celebrate and support cancer patients like Emma and her family."
-Erik Thompson, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Mercury Insurance
The Bear Fund was founded after Heather and Nick Baker's youngest child, Barrett ("Bear"), was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer. During that time, Heather and Nick began to notice the economic challenges some families on the hospital floors were facing. They decided they wanted to help, so they established The Bear Fund, in partnership with the Cancer Support Community, a 40 year old 501c3 charity, to provide financial support and navigation services to families with children diagnosed with cancer.
We walked by rooms to see children having to go through treatment or recover from surgery alone and we realized there's got to be something we can do to help, Parents shouldn't have to worry about missing work one day so they can be with their kids during treatment. We wanted to do what we could with the help of amazing donors to make this tough journey just a little bit easier,said Heather Baker.
Inspired by Emma's experience, Mercury Insurance is committed to bringing more awareness to The Bear Fund by giving away tickets to a Live Nation VIP Nation concert. For a limited time, all donors to The Bear Fund will be entered into a drawing to win two Live Nation VIP Nation 2023 concert experiences. Four lucky winners will be chosen. No purchase is necessary to enter to win and the contest is open to U.S. residents 18 years of age and older.
