Contact John Bradley
Affiliate Coordinator

“I feel strongly that it's my mission to be an advocate, a voice, because so many pancreatic cancer patients don't get the opportunity to do so. So many wonderful people have come into my life, whom I never would have met otherwise. It fills my heart with joy when new volunteers say ‘I want to become part of this group, and make a difference, like you are!’ Our affiliate has made an impact building awareness, fund raising, and equally important, creating a real community for survivors, families and friends.”

   - Maija, seven-year survivor and volunteer

PurpleLight Boise 2013

Boise went purple on October 26, 2013 for PurpleLight National Vigil for Hope. Family and friends of those touched by pancreatic cancer came together to gain both comfort and encouragement by illuminating purple glow sticks as they heard their loved ones’ names read aloud. Joined by nearly 20,000 participants in more than 80 communities across the country, this marked the largest participation in PurpleLight history and helped kick off National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

Photos will be posted at www.purplelight.org when they are available.

November Proclamation

Members of the Boise Affiliate accept a proclamation from Boise Mayor David H. Bieter declaring November as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

On September 7, 2013, the Boise affiliate held their third annual PurpleStride in Boise, ID. The family friendly walk was a great success by bringing awareness to more than 400 participants and raising over $30,000 for the cause!
 
PurpleStride Boise 2013 was an amazing and inspiring day and furthered our mission to advance research, support patients and create hope for all those affected by pancreatic cancer! Photos will be up soon on www.purplestride.org/boise!
