Julie Gundlach

Julie Gundlach is a brave meso warrior that was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma at the young age of 35.  Ms. Gundlach is a young wife and mother who has become empowered to use her voice to advocate for herself and all mesothelioma patients.  She has presented at conferences and has been featured not only on her local news, but also on CNN.  Her oratory skills are remarkable, eloquent and passionate, never failing to bring a room to tears.  Her story is powerful, a young mother with mesothelioma opens the world’s eyes to the fact that anyone can get mesothelioma.  Ms. Gundlach has volunteered her time to serve as a consumer reviewer for the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program for the second time this year.
