Thousands walk against pancreatic cancer
Thousands of Long Islanders banded together Sunday to raise awareness and find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
More than 4,000 people participated in the Lustgarten Foundation's ninth annual Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk. The walk is named in memory of Marc Lustgarten, former vice chairman of Cablevision.
"It's just so touching and so amazing how many people are affected by this disease," says Marcia Lustgarten, who lost her husband in 1999.
Pancreatic cancer kills more than 35,000 people a year in the U.S. There is no early test or cure.
