This infographic rings true for me. Does it ring true for you too? 🙂
And what about these two touching videos?
I’m not perfect. Are YOU?
We need YOUR support to find a cure for this deadly disease. Thanks.
Hello colleagues and readers:
I am a VERY blessed four-year survivor of pancreatic cancer. After this amount of time, I am among the only 5-7% of those with PC who is still alive. The fatality statistics for those afflicted with PC are truly staggering.
In 2019, “an estimated 56,770 adults (29,940 men and 26,830 women) in the United States will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Incidence rates are 25% higher in black people than in white people. It is estimated that 45,750 deaths (23,800 men and 21,950 women) from this disease will occur this year.”
“While pancreatic cancer is the ninth most common cancer in women and the tenth most common cancer in men, it is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in men and women.”
This year, I will be walking on October 6, 2019 in the annual Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Research Foundation walk on Long Island. If you want to walk with me, I welcome you to Team Joel.
Whether or not you can do the walk, please make a donation. 100% goes directly to research. Not administrative expenses. A donation of ANY amount would be greatly appreciated. 😊
At Lustgarten, “Thanks to separate funding to support administrative expenses, 100% of your donation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research. We are the only pancreatic cancer organization that can make this claim. The Lustgarten Foundation meets the highest standards established by Charity Navigator, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance, and GuideStar. In fact, we have received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for ten consecutive years, which only one percent of charities evaluated have achieved. We are a fully accredited charity with the BBB Wise Giving Alliance and have a platinum transparency rating with GuideStar.”
Thank you. You have my full gratitude.
Joel, a very lucky pancreatic survivor striving to give back!!!!!

As the title says, “”Please Give to Any Cancer Fund”. It will help AND make you feel better.
Do you have a favorite charity? Did you know that could donate to it for FREE through Amazon Smile? Amazon contributes 1/2 percent of purchases made at that site — with no cost to you. 1/2 percent may sound like a pittance. But consider this: As of May 2018, Amazon Smile had contributed a total of more than $89 million to charity. My particular interest is the Marc Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, which has received nearly $20,000 through Amazon Smile.
Amazon Prime’s vast customer base, which shops at Amazon rather often, presents a huge opportunity for charitable groups. To facilitate donations, Amazon set up Amazon Smile.
THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH. If you already shop at Amazon, there is an easy way to give to charity. Amazon Smile is an application that costs nothing to join or use when shopping. Through Amazon Smile, a 1/2% donation is made to the charity you choose when you shop. You can type in any charity you want. [Just type in the name of the charity instead of selecting one of the recommended ones.] 🙂
