Lustgarten Foundation To Host The Dutchess County Cure Pancreatic Cancer Golf Outing


In conjunction with the Lustgarten Foundation, pancreatic cancer survivor Bob Huzar is hosting the Dutchess County Cure Pancreatic Cancer Golf Outing.  The event is scheduled for Monday June 25, 2012 at the McCann Golf Course in Poughkeepsie, NY. All proceeds go to benefit the important research and treatments developed of the Lustgarten Foundation.

The odds of surviving pancreatic cancer is just 6%, it is the most lethal cancer. For now the only treatment for this disease is surgery. There is no test to identify this deadly disease.  Early detection saves lives! Once diagnosed with this cancer, the chances for survival are remote. 

The Lustgarten Foundation is working on identifying a gene which could identify certain markers by a simple blood test, thus leading to any early detection.

The Dutchess County cure pancreatic cancer charity golf outings purpose is to raise resources and awareness about pancreatic cancer, the fourth-leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
