The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s PurpleLight is a gathering of survivors, family, and friends who have been affected by pancreatic cancer. Participants form a community of hope in parks, courtyards, and city venues, as they share stories about their connection and the commitment to fight pancreatic cancer. Individuals gain both encouragement and comfort by illuminating purple glow sticks as they hear their loved ones’ names read aloud.

More than 80 communities across the nation host PurpleLight events, helping to turn the country purple and shine light on our cause. PurpleLight events take place in either fall or spring, depending on location, and help bring year-round awareness to our shared goal of doubling pancreatic cancer survival by 2020.


WAGE HOPE is our new rallying cry, our relentless call to action to accelerate progress in the fight against pancreatic cancer - no matter what it takes. We will never surrender in our pursuit to change the course of this terrible disease. Let WAGE HOPE inspire you to keep fighting with us. Join our movement and help it grow. Together, we will achieve our goal to double survival by 2020.
