We are joining with Pancreatic Cancer UK to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer in November by asking local landmarks to light up purple. Purple is the colour associated with pancreatic cancer across the globe.
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.
Less than 7% of people with pancreatic cancer will survive beyond 5 years in the UK. This November for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, we are asking if you could light up your local landmark and put a spotlight on a disease that deserves more recognition. For more information, please see the Purple Lights website.
