Jenifer Raub

Jenifer Raub is the fearless leader of Summit for Stem Cell, a foundation that raises funds and drives strategic partnerships to win the battle against Parkinson’s disease. As a Parkinson’s patient herself, Jenifer bravely battles the effort to move research through the phases of FDA approvals. What makes Jenifer different is her focused approach to raise awareness and funds from people and families affected by this disease all over the world. Families have trekked mountain summits to raise funds, and put on marches and concerts to keep the lab moving and on pace for each phase of FDA approval. It is a remarkable grassroots effort that has shown remarkable results despite the odds. Jenifer’s approach to raise funds has surpassed organizations 10 times their size.
