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

National PurpleLight Vigil for Hope

PurpleLight Jacksonville took place on November 20, 2011.  This event happened in conjunction with over 50 additional PurpleLight Vigils across the country, honoring loved ones who have faced pancreatic cancer and commemorating November as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.


There are many ways you can support the local fight and join other friendly volunteers committed to fighting pancreatic cancer. Whether you have ten minutes or are looking for a more extensive commitment, we have a role for you. Our volunteers focus on several key areas: raising general awareness, media, education and outreach to healthcare professionals, advocacy and fundraising and awareness events. Learn more.

To learn more about the local effort, or to sign up as a general volunteer, please email Ken Keating at kkeating@pancanvolunteer.org.

Together, we can know it, fight it, and end it!
