PurpleLight Western Kentucky 2013
Paducah went purple on October 27, 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.
Community Representatives Bring Awareness
The Paducah Community Represenative has been on the move! Recently, local volunteers hosted awareness tables at various health fairs, distributed PALS packets throughout the community, and represented the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network at Kentucky Oaks Mall during a speech with the "Mall Walkers." We also recently partnered with The Kentucky Cancer Program to tape an educational segment on pancreatic cancer and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network - more information coming soon!
