Turn it Purple is back!

Let’s ‘Turn It Purple’ this November for pancreatic cancer awareness month!

Pancreatic cancer is the U.K.’s fifth cause of cancer death, with the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer currently under 8%.

Public awareness across the UK of pancreatic cancer symptoms is incredibly low with 52% of people knowing almost nothing about the disease and 76% unable to name a single symptom.

At PCA our mission is to raise public awareness of pancreatic cancer symptoms across the healthcare and public sector, therefore improving early diagnosis and increasing survival rates.

As we continue to make it the Decade Of Change for pancreatic cancer. We are proud to say our Turn it Purple campaign is back, now in its 10th year and there are many ways our supporters can help us to celebrate and make this year bigger than ever before!

From fundraising to raising awareness in your community or encouraging your local landmarks to take part in Purple Lights UK, there is a range of ways you can help get involved this November. Here’s how you can help:

We have also put together a range of different purple props you can order to help Turn it Purple this November.

You can also head down to your local stores to search for more purple merchandise, we would recommend checking out: Home Bargains, Poundland, B&M, Amazon, Homebase and The Range.
