Commencing in 1994, Jerry Rhine suffered multiple heart attacks and strokes, resulting in severe brain damage and forcing him to discontinue his successful career in commercial real estate. After a year of cognitive treatment at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, Jerry enrolled at New York University and in 2004 earned a master’s degree in social work. During this period, Jerry was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and later with B-cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He is currently in stage three of the disease as a ten-year survivor, but has undergone repeated hospitalizations, surgeries, radiation, seeding, chemotherapy, cognitive therapy, physical rehabilitation, and pharmacological therapy for pain. Jerry is a certified spiritual healer and a Recovery Support Specialist providing Peer Support for people who are experiencing the challenges he has met.
