Kosten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Honors and Remembers Those Affected by Pancreatic Cancer at Annual Tribute at Twilight Event

Tribute at Twilight Honors and Remembers Those Affected by Pancreatic Cancer during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

Memphis, Tenn., November 19, 2018 – The Kosten Foundation’s Tribute at Twilight event on November 3 paid tribute to those lost to and affected by pancreatic cancer. Approximately 25 people gathered in Cancer Survivors Park, despite the cold windy weather, to share personal memorials to loved ones and support for those who are currently fighting the deadly disease. The event included a symbolic purple pinwheel display, a reading of the names of those who had passed away, and a glow stick ceremony.

“Getting together with survivors and other people who have been affected by pancreatic cancer and sharing stories of triumph, tribulation, and loss helps others cope and gives them hope,” said Alan Kosten, Chairman of the Herb Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Charitable Fund. “The Kosten Foundation exists to support everyone affected by pancreatic cancer as well as help fund research to help cure this deadly disease. Events like these, along with our free monthly support group, are very special and we are glad we can help facilitate them for those affected by pancreatic cancer.”
