MARGATE – Michael Neustadter lived a very healthy lifestyle. He took good care of himself; he ate the right foods he went to the gym and when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011 it came as a complete shock, according to his daughter, Katie Neustadter. Despite an early diagnosis and some of the best medical care available the disease was relentless. Neustadter lost his courageous battle with pancreatic cancer in January 2012, just one year after his diagnosis. “He never stopped fighting up to the very end and we will continue to fight this disease,” said his daughter Katie Neustadter. “In honor of his courageous battle and in his memory we have established the Michael J. Neustadter Pancreatic Cancer Fund. We are hoping to make a difference by spreading the word that this disease can impact someone who was extremely healthy, in good shape, and lived a full life and then the next minute his whole life changed He would want us to take this awful thing and turn it into something positive.” The family is hoping that by raising awareness of pancreatic cancer they will be able to make a difference and hopefully save others from the ravages of the disease. Funds raised through the Michael J. Neustadter Pancreatic Cancer Fund will be dedicated to research to one day fund a cure. Neustadter made a life helping others. Aside from being a devoted father and husband first and foremost, as head of AtlantiCare Board of Trustees, Neustadter played a big part in guiding AtlantiCare’s efforts to bring their services into the community, and allow them to be treated closer to home. “It was Michael’s persistence, passion and sense of purpose that guided our thinking and encouraged the AtlantiCare family to bring the AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute and other services to our communities, so patients could get their treatment in a supportive environment, closer to their homes and their family,” said David P. Tilton, president and CEO, AtlantiCare. “He and I talked on many occasions about the importance of treating the whole person – the whole family.” Katie Neustadter said her father would be proud to know his name lives on as a catalyst for curing this life threatening disease.
