As a board member of the organization, Ryan Hunter Bluestone speaks to the incredible work being done by the foundation in memory of his cousin saying, “Evan Gerstein was a fighter who was passionate about science. It is fitting that the foundation in Evan’s name aims to advance scientific research in the areas that most affected him, including more effective leukemia treatments, new ways to diagnose and treat fungal infections and patient care for teens and young adults with cancer.”
“We miss Evan every single day, and the organization is driven to continue the fight in his name and to garner as much support for young adults fighting leukemia as possible,” continued Ryan Bluestone.
