About Herb Kosten

Kosten Foundation Overview

The Kosten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research was founded in 2003 by the family of Herb Kosten after his death due to pancreatic cancer. Kosten’s family sought to improve community support, awareness, and funding for pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest known cancers. The organization has raised nearly $2,000,000 for pancreatic cancer research.

About Us

  • To provide funding for clinical and basic research toward improving outcomes of those afflicted with pancreatic cancer.
