Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month 2018

Choose your way to take on pancreatic cancer

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM). We are on Purple Alert.

Pancreatic cancer is tough to diagnose, tough to treat and tough to research. Sadly less than 7% of people with pancreatic cancer in the UK survive for five years. Urgent change needs to happen in order to transform the future for everyone affected by the disease.

The time has come for you to Take It On - choose your way to take on pancreatic cancer.

This year, we have developed new ways to fundraise for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, so whatever you choose, your support can help save lives.

Challenge27 - In the UK, 27 people die from pancreatic cancer every day. Why not walk, run or ride 27 miles in November for a day, a week or a month.

Stand Out - Dressing Purple or shaving, dyeing, or waxing your hair is an amazing way to take a stand against pancreatic cancer.

Bake Off - You bake them, they buy them. Dazzle your friends with your amazing skills and bake your way to the top.

Do It Your Way Have your own idea? Then make the event your own and tell us where and when it is and we will help you along the way.

Purple Lights for pancreatic cancer

Stormont Purple Lights (1)

Once again, supporters and pancreatic cancer charities across the UK will be coming together to put a spotlight on the disease to ensure it gets the recognition it deserves.

Arranging for landmarks, buildings and venues to be lit purple has become a feature of PCAM and is the ideal time to get together with friends and family to remember those sadly lost to the disease or celebrate the lives of those that have survived.

Check out our Purple Lights website for inspiration, ideas and where light ups took place last year. 

We will be updating the website soon with information on how to get involved in 2018. In the meantime, if you have a question please email info@purplelightsuk.org and we will be happy to help.
