The Lustgarten Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created in 1998. It is named for Marc Lustgarten, Vice Chairman of Cablevision Systems Corportion, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
 
The mission of the Foundation is to "advance the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer" by: increasing funding for research related to pancreatic cancer, heightening the public's awareness of pancreatic cancer, and enhancing the dialog about pancreatic cancer in the medical and scientific communities.
 
The Lustgarten Foundation has awarded more than $9 million to support research in pancreatic cancer.  It is the largest private supporter of pancreatic cancer research.
