The evening is an opportunity to bring the whole family together with an amazing goal. The event will be raising funding for pancreatic cancer research.

The Foundation’s first event last month was an incredible success, with over 80 supporters, patients, and medical staff participating. It was a day full of amazing news for 2.5-year pancreatic cancer warrior Craig Hellmers. He found out he was cancer-free and won the Grand Raffle Prize Mattress, all in the same day!
“Couldn’t imagine the day getting better, but it did,” said his wife, Tricia. “Lucky card 75 won the grand prize of a beautiful Nectar sleep mattress!”

“It is very humbling for the Seena Magowitz Foundation to be at the forefront of fighting this disease,” said Roger E. Magowitz, who started the foundation in honor of his mother, Seena, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2001.
The Seena Magowitz Foundation is known as “The Face and Voice of Pancreatic Cancer.” It works to provide the loudest voice of awareness for the disease. It’s also dedicated to fundraising for the most impactful research in the industry. The Foundation is committed to early detection, patient quality of life, and an eventual cure.
The Foundation is very proud of earning the highest “Platinum Seal of Transparency,” the highest award of distinction from GuideStar. With only one exception, the foundation has no
compensated staff. It also has no brick and mortar overhead. This operating style guarantees the largest possible percentage of donor funding is allocated to medical research.
