Jesse Gerb BS

Patient Advocate/Acute Leukemia Survivor, University of Maryland, Medical Center

My name is Jesse Gerb and I am a 24-year-old Acute Leukemia cancer survivor, clinical researcher, and young entrepreneur. As a Leukemia survivor and ambassador to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society all I want to do in my life going forward is to give back to the oncology community. The amount of genuine support and kindness I have received is absolutely amazing. I want to be a leader in the community and show patients, much like myself, that there is a “light at the end of the tunnel” and that your illness doesn’t define you. There is a whole life to live after your diagnosis and people should know that it does get better!
