Emily Smith in Cancer Research Walk on Sunday, July 25

On Sunday, July 25, The Lustgarten Foundation will hold its 10th annual Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk at Nassau County Community College, Garden City.

Among those participating will be Emily Smith, a 15-year-old Massapequa teen who has participated in the walk for four years and recently filmed her own PSA to raise awareness for the cause.

In its 10-year history, the walk has grown to more than 4,000 participants and raised more than $6.2 million for research. The money raised goes to advancing research aimed at early detection methods, better treatments, and ultimately, a cure for pancreatic cancer.
