Anne’s Story

Anne Glauber was a truly incredible person. In May 2014 she was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer; she was given only six months to live. Instead of letting this devastating diagnosis stop her, Anne took this disease on in a way that only she could. She devised a plan and tapped into a variety of resources which resulted in her living a longer, fuller life. As part of that she created Let’s Win so that other pancreatic cancer patients could access the same types of resources that she was able to use.

Anne passed away after a heroic 3-year battle with this disease. Let’s Win is her legacy. She would say she won and wants all pancreatic cancer patients to do the same.

The Birth of Let’s Win

Anne’s Urgent Search

In May 2014, my life was transformed when I learned that I had stage IV pancreatic cancer. My family and I were stunned and devastated, not knowing where to turn, but knowing that we had to do something urgently.

The overwhelming fear and confusion we experienced became the genesis for Let’s Win.

It was very difficult to determine the best pancreatic cancer doctors or understand the science advances that could help me. We networked with every possible person who might provide answers.

These recommendations brought me to Dr. William Isacoff in Los Angeles and Dr. Allyson Ocean in New York. I chose these doctors because they specialize in pancreatic cancer and are willing to be innovative in their treatments.

They use new science-driven approaches that go beyond the typical treatment for pancreatic cancer and have introduced me to leading scientists who can provide help for patients right now. I wanted to share this experience with others.

Willa Shalit, Dr. Allyson Ocean, Kerri Kaplan, and I made a commitment to create the resource that I had not been able to find: an online community sharing new science-driven treatments to help patients and families fight pancreatic cancer.

We imagined, then founded Let’s Win. We are an initiative supported by the Lustgarten Foundation.
