The Evan Joseph Gerstein Foundation was formed to honor Evan Gerstein, who died at seventeen from a fungal infection in his heart, a complication of treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Evan loved all things scientific, so the Foundation aims to advance research in areas that affected Evan, including:

  • Better leukemia treatments, especially for those with difficult to treat mutations in their leukemic cells;
  • New treatments and diagnostic tools for fungal infections, which afflict not only cancer patients, but others with compromised immune systems;
  • Care for teens and young adults with cancer, whose diseases are desperately underfunded. 


The Foundation has applied for and is awaiting tax exempt status.  When granted, your donation should be tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.
