Being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer is devastating. With limited treatment options
and a survival of less than 8 percent, the odds are stacked against the patient. At the
Lustgarten Foundation, we are changing the odds. We are committed to increasing the
number of survivors by developing earlier detection methods and more effective
treatments. Thanks to our industry- leading private funding which ensures that 100% of
donations go directly to the most accomplished scientists, we are starting to give
patients more time and better quality of life. Your support can make a significant
difference for the more than 55,000 people and their loved ones who will be diagnosed
with pancreatic cancer this year.
