Jack Whelan

Patient Leader

Jack is an active Research & Legislative Advocate, a strong supporter of the development of Precision Medicines and participating in Clinical Trials. He is currently managing a rare incurable blood cancer and more recently an aggressive metastatic prostate cancer. None of the standard-of-care options have worked for Jack so he is now receiving a novel molecular level radioactive therapy from Germany for which he is very hopeful. Jack chose to become an active Advocate as a way to become more educated and engaged with his own care while sharing his personal experiences with other patients, biopharmaceutical firms and speaking at global life sciences conferences.
