“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

PurpleStride San Antonio 2012 is a Hit!

PurpleStride San Antonio 2012 was an amazing and inspiring day and we couldn't have done it without you! Together we raised over $57,000 to advance research, support patients and create hope! Thank you San Antonio!

Your time and efforts, volunteering, fundraising and raising awareness truly paid off. We are making great strides in Texas and raising awareness about pancreatic cancer. This event would not have been what it was without the countless volunteer hours put in by all of you.

A special thanks to all of the San Antonio Affiliate Volunteers and Coordinators!

PurpleLight San Antonio 2013

San Antonio 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.

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