Jan, a retired Los Gatos High School teacher and Activities Director, is a past School Board member, past President of The Summit League, and has been active in many other community organizations and events. She became an activist in cancer after too many of her family members and friends were diagnosed with the disease. As a result of her experiences, she joined the American Cancer Society Board of Silicon Valley, hoping to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from cancer. She has served on the Board for 13 years, and as Board Chairman from 2003-2005. As an advocate for cancer patients, she learned about the devastating effect on patients, families and caregivers. Jan, who serves as Chairman of Patient Services and Secretary for the board, welcomed the opportunity to join CancerCAREpoint, knowing she could impact individuals and families in our community affected by cancer.
