About the Kosten Foundation

Founded in 2003, shortly after Herb’s death, the Herb Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Charitable Fund was established by his family in order to pay tribute to a man who battled cancer with dignity and courage.

Our programs include a yearly symposium headlined by nationally recognized leaders in the field of pancreatic cancer, as well as fellowship training for future pancreatic cancer surgeons. We also host a monthly support group meeting, providing hope and help for patients and their families.

Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Support Group


The Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Support Group meets the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. until noon at the Cordova Public Library, 8457 Trinity Rd., Cordova TN. 

The group is open to patients, family members, caregivers and anyone interested in sharing experiences or information related to pancreatic cancer.  There is no cost to attend, and reservations are not required. 

For more details, contact the office of Dr. Stephen W. Behrman, associate professor at University of Tennessee Health Science Center-Memphis at (901) 448-3234.
