New York City Walk

I'm fundraising for the future....

I can’t believe it’s been 10 yrs since my mom and dad passed.  To honor my parents, our family has chosen to participate in the Lustgarten Foundation Walk Against Pancreatic Cancer on April 21st in NYC. Many of you know that my father, Sidney, had a successful pancreatomy and lived almost 8 yrs after this surgery. My mother, Charlotte, was his rock, greatest supporter, and the best caretaker  They loved life and they LOVED their family more than anything. Our team name reflects our meaningful relationship to family and my mother’s amazing cooking- especially her perfect chicken soup with fluffy matzah balls.
Hence Team Chicken Soup !!

The advances in research for pancreatic cancer funded by the Lustgarten Foundation made over the past 10yrs have improved the outlook for someone receiving this diagnosis. We want to make certain that more tests can be developed for early detection. My father’s cancer was detected accidentally and very early but in most cases pancreatic cancer is caught too late. Continued research and development is still vital to stop this cancer! 

My family and I hope you will consider donating to our team so this vital research can continue.  We also welcome anyone to participate in the walk with us! 

Why Lustgarten? They are the nation’s largest private funder of pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to separate funding of administrative expenses, 100% of our fundraising and your donation funds pancreatic cancer research - research led by Lustgarten and powered by you! Together, we will raise more money for research advancements than I ever could alone.

AND The Heidecorn Family Foundation will match dollar for dollar all donations !

Your contribution will help my family achieve our goal so that more funding can be allocated for research into early detection and new treatments. Please share this page with any friends you think might be interested in donating, and join my team on this journey towards a cure.   We will all be there on Sunday April 21, 2024, at the Hudson River Park (12th avenue at 42nd Street by the Intrepid and Circle Line Ships) on this journey towards a cure.
