Lustgarten Foundation For Pancreatic Research
In April, 2013, my world was forever changed when my wife, Miriam Shigon, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Knowing that she was BRCA1 positive, we did some prophylactic surgical procedures to try and thwart the disease. But having already spread into her lymphatic system and liver, an inoperable Stage 4 diagnosis led us to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Known for their breadth of expertise, cutting edge research, and personalized patient care, Mir and I felt comfortable with MSKCC as our partner in her care. Initially, Miriam participated in a clinical trial for those afflicted with the BRCA1 genetic mutation. This trial and subsequent treatment kept her in pretty good health, considering. We traveled. We saw many friends and family. We lived as ‘normal’ a life as possible. Mir was relatively healthy for most of her 20 months with the disease. On February 1, 2015, God welcomed Miriam, with open arms.
The initial clinical trial which benefitted Miriam was funded by the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Research. Since her diagnosis, we have participated in fundraising efforts for Lustgarten, notably their walks to raise money for research and outreach. Miriam, being from Philadelphia, we walk in the Greater Philadelphia walk as well as the New York City event. As Miriam befriended all with whom she came into contact, we have always walked under the banner of "Miriam’s BFFs". 100% of all funds raised by Lustgarten are used towards research and outreach because they are funded by Cablevision. This commitment and the promising work of Lustgarten, make for a wonderful partnership.
