Thanks to Cablevision's support, 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to research. This is unique and fantastic!! Lustgarten Foundation is the largest private supporter of pancreatic cancer research which is so important as less than 2% of federal funding goes to pc research.

I donated to this org, and I started receiving junk emails. I clicked on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email, and was sent to their website. I attempted to find unsubscribe but i found nothing. I searched for unsubscribe, and again found nothing. I clicked on Contact Us and I had to fill out a form with all sorts of private personal information. When I left some fields blank, it just didn't accept it and came back to the same screen with no error message. I finally filled in n/a into the fields and it accepted the form. There are heavy penalties ($16,000 per incident - see the FTC.gov) for violating the Can Spam Act, which applies to commercial business. There is no excuse for a charitable org to violate it, even though they are not subject to the penalties. Not to mention their website sucks. They must get their act together before I will make another contribution.

My husband died of pancreatic cancer in 2007. Since then I have tried to find a way to combat this horrible disease, so that no other family would have to go through what we have been through. This year I organized a walk to raise money for pancreatic cancer research through the Lustgarten Foundation. They were absolutely wonderful to work with, and the best part is that EVERY PENNY RAISED GOES STRAIGHT TO RESEARCH. They are underwritten by Cablevision, and have no administrative costs. You can't get any better than that. Such a worthy cause and such a wonderful organization! Five stars!!
