We are very sad to hear of the passing of Jessie Gruman, the Founder and CEO of the Center for Advancing Health. Jessie was an inspiring and passionate advocate for patients, and her work has touched many facing the challenges of a chronic illness. We were recently honored to celebrate Jessie’s work at the 2013 Rays of Hope event, where she was the recipient of the NCCS Excellence in Media Award for her contributions to encouraging patient engagement and her exceptional achievements in furthering the interests of cancer survivors through media. Our condolences go out to her colleagues, friends, and family. It was truly an honor to share in her warm spirit and passion for advocacy, and she will be greatly missed.
