Double Your Donation and Fund a Lustgarten Foundation Research Investigator!
The Lustgarten Foundation has launched a new program to fund significant researchers and research projects that will lead to early diagnosis, improved and effective therapy, and ultimately a cure for pancreatic cancer. The Research Investigator Program supports leading scientists and clinicians dedicated to pancreatic cancer research to pursue their most promising research ideas. Each Research Investigator receives $500,000 per year.
We challenge you to raise $250,000 by the end of this year to match our $250,000 commitment. This will allow us to fund one additional Research Investigator in 2014. Double your donation. Support a Research Investigator. Donate now!
Cancer treatments are the result of scientific research. But research follows dollars and in spite of being the nation’s fourth leading cancer killer, pancreatic cancer receives less than 2% of federal funding. The Research Investigator Program will fund the best and brightest minds in the cancer community toward finding a cure for this dreaded disease.
Help spread the word. Tell five friends how important The Lustgarten Foundation is in the fight against pancreatic cancer and how they can double their donation.
