What is Purple Lights for pancreatic cancer 2017?

Purple is the colour associated with pancreatic cancer across the globe.

Organised by individuals affected by the disease, the act of lighting up a focal point in a village, town or city symbolises for many a way to remember loved ones who have sadly died of the disease, as well as celebrate the lives of those that have survived and raise vital awareness.

Only 5% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive after five years. This November for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, we encourage you to light up your local landmark and put a spotlight on a disease that deserves more recognition.

This is an activity supported by the following UK based charities:
Core, Pancreatic Cancer Action, Pancreatic Cancer Scotland and Pancreatic Cancer UK.
