Casey McKenna - Lustgarten Foundation: Pancreatic Cancer Research

Casey McKenna

Honoring my Grandfather

I lost my grandfather to pancreatic cancer in 2008. He was a lifelong resident of Hugenot in Staten Island and very active in the community. After his diagnosis, my family and I joined the Lustgarten Walk—Paramus, but we wanted to do more in our own community. We started to hear about more people in our neighborhood who had pancreatic cancer, including our neighbor, who passed away. I decided to start my own walk in honor of my grandfather. The Lustgarten Walk—Staten Island has been a great addition to our community and the perfect way to show our support for those fighting and to remember those who have passed away.
