About The Lustgarten Foundation and Pancreatic Cancer

The Lustgarten Foundation, based in Bethpage, New York, is America's largest private foundation working solely on pancreatic cancer research. The Foundation provides critical support in the search for better diagnostics and treatment of pancreatic cancer, and to date has provided more than $22 million to more than 110 research projects at some of the world's most prestigious medical and research centers.

The Lustgarten Foundation and Cablevision Systems Corporation, a leading media and entertainment company, together launched curePC, a public awareness campaign that uses Cablevision's high-profile assets to draw attention to the fight against pancreatic cancer.
