Vigil for Hope:
Is a time to remember those who have fought this disease and honor pancreatic cancer survivors. The Seattle area affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network will join thousands of people across the country to participate in one of over 80 PurpleLight National Vigil for Hope events on October 27, 2013. The local event will take place at 7:00 pm at the Arnold Medical Pavilion/ Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center. Family and friends of those touched by pancreatic cancer come together to gain both comfort and encouragement by illuminating purple glow sticks as they hear their loved ones’ name read aloud, helping to light the night purple. The candlelight vigil will commence National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November and create community awareness about the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
