Fundraising...Easier than you think!

  • Fundraise with a Mission!  Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death in women and men in the United States.  The average length of survival for individuals with pancreatic cancer is six to nine months from diagnosis.  We know that research is our best weapon in the fight against pancreatic cancer.  To date, the Lustgarten Foundation has provided $20 million in support of promising pancreatic cancer research.
  • Where will the money go?  The Lustgarten Foundation has sponsored nine international research conferences, launched a national public awareness campaign, and awareded $20 million in support of promising pancreatic cancer research.  The Foundation also distributes a free handbook offering patients and their families the most up-to-date-information on the disease.  Your support today could mean a cure for tommorrow!
