Date:9/17/2009

BETHPAGE, N.Y., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lustgarten Foundation, the nation's largest private supporter of research into better detection and treatment of pancreatic cancer, today issued the following statement on the disease that took the life of NCAA President, Myles Brand.

Kerri Kaplan, Lustgarten Foundation Executive Director, said: "We would like to express our sincere condolences to Mr. Brand's family and the entire NCAA community. This week, we lost two prominent people to pancreatic cancer, while thousands of others privately battle this deadly disease. It has never been more clear that we need more research to improve early diagnosis and treatment options, that might one day, lead us to a cure."

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. As part of this campaign, Cablevision made a multi-year commitment to underwrite all of The Lustgarten Foundation's administrative costs to ensure that 100 percent of every dollar donated to The Foundation will go directly to pancreatic cancer research.
