Founded in 2003, shortly after Herb’s death, the Herb Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Charitable Fund was established by his family in order to pay tribute to a man who battled cancer with dignity and courage.
In addition to our ongoing research our programs include a yearly symposium headlined by nationally recognized leaders in the field of pancreatic cancer surgeons. We also host a monthly support group meeting, providing hope and help for patients and their families.
This years 5k is dedicated to the memory of our former Executive Director, Yvonne Ressel, who died from pancreatic cancer on October 9, 2013. She is the true spirit of our organization! All of our continuing efforts to find a cure for pancreatic cancer and to provide support for the individuals and families, who are touched by this disease are devoted in Yvonne's Memory.
