Team Margaret Merle

Westchester Walk

I'm fundraising for..In Memory of Margaret Merle.

I am participating in Lustgarten's Walk for Pancreatic Cancer Research to celebrate the progress that has been made and to power tomorrow's research. Please support my goal as I embrace Lustgarten's vision of transforming pancreatic cancer into a curable disease. Donate to my page and provide hope to thousands of families touched by this devastating disease.

Why Lustgarten? They are the nation’s largest private funder of pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to separate funding of administrative expenses, 100% of my 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.

Your contribution will help me achieve my 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 me on this journey towards a cure.

In Loving Memory

Saturday 16th Mar
Margaret Merle was a beloved member of our family and a dedicated early childhood teacher and Director of the Floral Park Preschool program for many years. Children gravitated to her knowing immediately that she was someone who was very special.  She mentored and touched the lives of many young teachers who adopted her philosophy of the importance of play in the learning lives of children.. Her deep love for her family, her husband Tom, her children and grandchildren was cherished by each of them. Margaret bravely fought pancreatic cancer for almost 11 years.

Thank You to My Donors
