The National Pancreas Foundation provides hope for those suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer through funding cutting edge research, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals.
The National Pancreas Foundation has online community resources for individuals and their family members who may be suffering from pancreatic diseases. In 2014, Boston Scientific provided the National Pancreas Foundation with an unrestricted educational grant that was used to develop educational animations that are featured on the Foundation's website.
The Lustgarten Foundation is committed to advancing the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer. The Foundation supports research to find a cure for pancreatic cancer, facilitates dialogue within the medical and scientific community, and educates the public about the disease through awareness campaigns and fundraising events.
Since its inception, the Foundation has directed more than $110 million to research and assembled the best scientific minds with the hope that one day, a cure will be found.
Due to the support of Cablevision Systems Corporation, a leading media and telecommunications company, 100 percent of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.
