Board member since 2012
“I am dedicated to making lives better and finding a cure.”
Joe Eischens, our current president, has cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. He was diagnosed with mycosis fungoides in 2003 and has been fighting the good fight since then. His journey with this disease began as many do - lots of frustration, confusion and fear. He reached out to the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation early in his journey and was touched by the loving and caring support he received. Since then, he has dedicated himself to furthering the mission of the Foundation - support every person affected by cutaneous lymphoma by promoting awareness and education, advancing patient care and fostering research for the best possible outcomes.
Joe joined the Board of Directors in 2012, and humbly became President of the Board in 2016 and served in that role until Fall 2019. Joe believes there is more the Foundation can do and it is his goal to lead the Board to spectacular accomplishments during his term as President. He is focused on fundraising so the Foundation can continue to provide a broad range of services and information, along with renewed effort toward advocacy at all levels of government, and creating partnerships with researchers in the medical field so that one day a cure will be found.
Day to day Joe is an attorney and a mediator.
