Gayle M. Jacob’s Story

The newly renovated Cancer Center at Henry Ford Allegiance Health is being named in honor of Gayle M. Jacob, a community member and Henry Ford Allegiance Community Partner who has volunteered her time and talent toward this project for more than 13 years. Inspired by her own experience when her mother was diagnosed with cancer in 1998, Gayle helped to shape changes that will strengthen this Center’s focus on the unique needs of patients with cancer and their families.
