A Record-breaking $1.75 Million Raised At Holiday Rock & Roll Bash To Benefit The Lustgarten Foundation In Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer

Stocks in this article: AMCXCVCMSG

About The Lustgarten Foundation and Pancreatic Cancer Pancreatic cancer is swift and silent, often undetected until it's too late. More than 37,000 people will die from it this year. The overall five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is six percent and most individuals with advanced cancer die within a year. There are no early detection tests, no effective long-term treatments and, unless the cancer is surgically removed in its earliest stages, no cure. It is the fourth-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States.

The Lustgarten Foundation is America's largest private foundation dedicated to funding pancreatic cancer research. Based in Bethpage, New York, 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. The Foundation has provided millions of research dollars and assembled the best scientific minds with the hope that one day, a cure can be found. Cablevision Systems Corporation, a leading media and telecommunications company, underwrites all of The Lustgarten Foundation's administrative costs, so that 100 percent of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.
