“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.”

PurpleStride Boise 2014
On September 6, the Boise affiliate held their fourth annual PurpleStride. The family friendly walk was a great success by bringing awareness to more than 800 participants and raising over $58,000 for the cause!
PurpleStride Boise 2014 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!
Boise came together to honor, inspire and remember all those affected by pancreatic cancer at PurpleLight on October 26, 2014. Survivors, family and friends illuminated purple glow sticks as they heard their loved ones’ names read aloud, helping to light the night purple. Boise was joined by thousands of participants at more than 45 PurpleLight events across the country, bringing solidarity, comfort and hope to the pancreatic cancer community.
Photos will be posted at www.purplelight.org when they are available.
