Learn about PurpleLight
PurpleLight Vigil for Hope is a time to honor loved ones fighting pancreatic cancer and those who have lost the fight. Family and friends of those touched by pancreatic cancer come together to share stories about important lives, and the commitment to fight pancreatic cancer. Participants gain both comfort and encouragement by illuminating glowsticks as they hear their loved ones’ name read aloud, helping to light the night purple.
This fall, more than 80 communities came together to turn the country purple for PurpleLight 2013! Nearly 20,000 people touched by pancreatic cancer gathered in parks, courtyards, and city venues to light the sky purple. PurpleLight events kick off November as National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
