Sharon Varga - Lustgarten Foundation: Pancreatic Cancer Research

Sharon Varga

I am Proof There is Hope

In 2018, I will be a nine-year pancreatic cancer survivor. I was diagnosed in 2009 and began the Lustgarten Walk—Milford in 2013 to unite other pancreatic cancer patients and survivors, and to raise much-needed money for research. I am living proof that there is hope; that you are not defined by your illness; and that you are stronger than you know. My family has been a great source of strength to me during my diagnosis and treatment, and I am determined not just to survive, but to thrive for myself and also for them. Since the Milford walk’s inception, we have raised more than $300,000 that will go toward fighting this terrible disease. I hope when people come to the walk, hearing my story will offer them hope that we are making progress.
