We rely on your support to make a difference. By turning Canada purple throughout National Awareness Month, we can generate conversation and awareness of pancreatic cancer. November is our time to UNITE in the FIGHT against pancreatic cancer.

Light it Purple

We thank the following Landmarks for shining a purple light on pancreatic cancer this November. Let us know if you have a building in your community that has turned purple to support this important fight - we will post it below.
