Landmarks Lighting it Purple for WPCD 2017

We are so excited by the number of landmarks that will be Lighting it Purple on 16th November for World Pancreatic Cancer Day 2017.

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.

Largely 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. 

You can still organise to light up a landmark near you! Click here to head over the Purple Lights UK website.
