Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month 2018

Choose your way to take on pancreatic cancer

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and we are on Purple Alert.

Pancreatic cancer is the toughest cancer to diagnose, treat and survive. 1 in 4 people won’t survive for a month. 3 in 4 won’t survive for a year. This is an emergency. We need change, fast.

It’s time to Take It On. Choose your way to fundraise for research that will save lives.

Challenge 24 - In the UK, 24 people die from pancreatic cancer every day. Why not walk, run or ride 24 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 Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month 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.
