I signed up to participate in the NYC Pancreatic Cancer Research walk on April 3rd and have created a donor page in honor of my mother and grandfather. Both were taken from this world by pancreatic cancer and frankly, it pisses me off and I want to see this disease eradicated before it can hurt anyone else.
This monstrous illness is the nation’s fourth leading cause of cancer deaths and the low survival rate for this disease has not improved in 25 years.
Research holds the key to finding better treatments and a cure. Yet only 2% of all federal cancer research funding goes to pancreatic cancer. Additional money for research is urgently needed to help change the course of this disease.
That’s why I have joined forces with The Lustgarten Foundation. As the nation’s largest private supporter of pancreatic cancer research, The Lustgarten Foundation understands that research is our best weapon in the fight.
Now, thanks to a commitment by Cablevision to underwrite the Foundation’s administrative expenses, 100% of every dollar donated to the Foundation will go directly to pancreatic cancer research.
Together, we can give patients a fighting chance.
Please click here to connect to my donor page. Any donation, large or small, will help me reach my goal of $500. And 100% of every dollar raised will go directly to pancreatic cancer research!
