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 over $1,500,000 for pancreatic cancer research.

Friday Flavor Fix for people with #pancreaticcancer. Does food have a metallic taste? Avoid using metal utensils; use plastic utensils instead. Add extra flavor to foods with spices such as onion, garlic, chili powder, basil, oregano, rosemary, tarragon, barbecue sauce, etc.
