There were even three survivors of pancreatic cancer at the ninth annual Lustgarten Walk held in Marion. All of the money raised goes to pancreatic cancer research.

Marlene Lenock started the event in memory of her brother

"Most people, I'm sorry to say, only live about six months after they are diagnosed. I was very fortunate that I had my brother for the 17 months that I did," she said.

To date, the walk in Marion has raised about $50,000.
