November is Pancreatic Cancer
Turn Awareness Into Action – Donate Today
When you make a gift this Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, every dollar you give will be matched up to $150,000 to fund bold, innovative research with the singular focus of transforming pancreatic cancer into a curable disease.
Research is fundamental. When the Lustgarten Foundation was founded, very little money was invested in pancreatic cancer research and there were virtually no long-term treatment options. In the intervening decades, the Lustgarten Foundation has been a leading force in every major advancement in pancreatic cancer research – your support has allowed us to forever change the landscape.
A hallmark of the Lustgarten Foundation’s unique research strategy, the Lustgarten Advancing Breakthrough Science (LABS) Program, provides long-term funding to promote the development of innovative ideas and speed the pace of discovery by incentivizing interdisciplinary team science. With our broad vision and dynamic strategy, each of the six institutions in the LABS Program bring unique ideas on how to solve the most challenging problems of pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer death in the United States and is projected to be the 2nd by 2030. While the survival rate has improved from 4% in 1998 to 11% in 2022, we are nowhere near where we need to be; and we are no less committed in our fight today than we were nearly 25 years ago.
Honor Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month by changing awareness into action! Donate today in support of the world’s preeminent pancreatic cancer researchers and ground breaking research.
