How Lustgarten is Responding
to COVID-19

A letter from the CEO

Hi and thank you for checking in with the Lustgarten Foundation to learn more about our response to the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.

Seemingly overnight, COVID-19 has dramatically changed the world in which we live. I sincerely hope you and your loved ones are well.

We at the Lustgarten Foundation are doing our best to follow the CDC guidelines, practice social distancing and to help flatten the curve. As of Tuesday, March 17, all staff are working remotely, but we are staying in touch with one another and continue to be here for you. Though images from major cities and small towns across the country almost make it feel that life has stopped, we know the fight against pancreatic cancer cannot wait.

For now, we have postponed or cancelled all events through the end of May—if you were already registered for one of these events, you should have received an email with everything you need to know. If you missed the email or are just now considering registering for an event, we’ve posted all the details below. Of course, if you have questions about pancreatic cancer, fundraising, walks or anything else, please get in touch. Call us tollfree at 866-789-1000 or send an email to contactus@lustgarten.org. We check the messages daily and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible.

To keep up with the latest pancreatic cancer research information and Lustgarten Foundation activities, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.

We know this is a difficult and uncertain time, and we also know we will get through this together. Please follow the recommendations of your healthcare provider and practice social distancing as much as possible (but remember, Skype and FaceTime are great options to keep you connected with friends and family) and stay healthy and safe.

 

 

Kerri Kaplan,
President and CEO
