Community Advocate

“I feel strongly that it's my mission to be an advocate, a voice, because so many pancreatic cancer patients don't get the opportunity to do so. So many wonderful people have come into my life, whom I never would have met otherwise. It fills my heart with joy when new volunteers say ‘I want to become part of this group, and make a difference, like you are!’ Our affiliate has made an impact building awareness, fund raising, and equally important, creating a real community for survivors, families and friends.”

PurpleLight New Hampshire 2014

New Hampshire came together to honor, inspire and remember all those affected by pancreatic cancer at PurpleLight on October 26, 2014. Survivors, family and friends illuminated purple glow sticks as they heard their loved ones’ names read aloud, helping to light the night purple. New Hampshire was joined by thousands of participants at more than 45 PurpleLight events across the country, bringing solidarity, comfort and hope to the pancreatic cancer community.

Photos will be posted at www.purplelight.org when they are available.

Night with the Manchester Monarchs (2014)

We participated in an awareness event with the Manchester Monarchs hockey team. They did an amazing light show before the game with audio talking about the disease. This event received great television coverage and has led to several radio interviews, creating further awareness of pancreatic cancer.


Volunteer

There are many ways you can support the local fight and join other friendly volunteers committed to fighting pancreatic cancer. Whether you have ten minutes or are looking for a more extensive commitment, we have a role for you. Our local volunteers focus their efforts on educating elected officials about pancreatic cancer with the goal to increase federal funding for pancreatic cancer research.
