Jerri Coleman managed the Gene Therapy Center for nearly four years. She brought light and laughter into our lives, and was a wonderful friend and co-worker to all who knew her. At the age of 10, Jerri was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes. Although she lived daily with the health challenges and inconveniences of her condition, she always had a smile and a kind word to share. She died on July 2, 2004 from complications of this disease.
In her memory, the Gene Therapy Center has established the Jerri L. Coleman Memorial Fund for Diabetes Research. If you would like to make a contribution, please send it to the address below. You may also contribute via The Medical Foundation’s secure website. Thank you so much for your generosity.
