A Tribute to Anne Glauber
Anne Glauber was an award-winning public relations executive
, a Managing Partner of Finn Partners and the director of the Global Issues group where she focused on fostering social change through meaningful corporate social responsibility programs, advocacy initiatives and creative partnerships. She joined the Lustgarten Foundation Board of Directors
in 2014 and was eager to donate her time and talent to our organization. She served as a communications advisor to the Foundation. She hosted a Pancreatic Cancer Communication Brain Trust Meeting
to identify new strategies and tactics to increase awareness and a sense of urgency for this most challenging disease. She invited more than 50 of her colleagues - an impressive who's who in the communications field - to provide guidance and help shape the Foundation's communications platform.
While seeking the best non-standard of care treatment options available for herself, Anne realized that she could help others by sharing the information she spent hours researching. Let’s Win was launched in early 2016
with co-founders, Lustgarten Foundation’s President and CEO Kerri Kaplan; Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University Dr. Allyson Ocean; Partner at RTM Willa Shalit; and Executive Director Cindy Gavin. Let’s Win is an interactive platform that enables patients, doctors and researchers to share fast-breaking information that goes beyond the standard of care. There is no other resource like it for pancreatic cancer. Anne passed away on February 28, 2017 leaving a legacy including a vibrant and growing Let’s Win platform.
Her courage, persistence, grace and humor never failed her. She regarded Let’s Win as her most important professional achievement, and delighted in turning her devastating diagnosis into a life-enhancing tool for others. The surviving founders of Let’s Win – Willa Shalit, Allyson Ocean, Kerri Kaplan and Cindy Gavin - express their gratitude to Anne, and to her family, for planting the seeds of vision, inspiration and determination that have flowered into Let’s Win. They will proudly continue her work.
