National Vigil for Hope at Koser Spring Lake Park

Friday, October 28, 2011

Creating awareness and honoring those impacted by pancreatic cancer

November is National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and community volunteers have partnered with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to sponsor a 'Purple Light National Vigil for Hope' at Koser Spring Lake Park in Cherokee on Saturday, November 12, beginning at 7 p.m.

The event is designed to create greater awareness of pancreatic cancer, and also to honor those who have been impacted by the illness.

The Purple Light ceremony will be held in the Main Shelter House, and refreshments will be served.

Note: The nature of the Internet makes it impractical for our staff to review every comment. If you feel that a comment is offensive, please Login or Create an account first, and then you will be able to flag a comment as objectionable. Please also note that those who post comments on chronicletimes.com may do so using a screen name, which may or may not reflect a website user's actual name. Readers should be careful not to assign comments to real people who may have names similar to screen names. Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.

I would just like everyone to be aware that this is NOT A FUND RAISER and NO DONATIONS will be excepted at this event. However, if people would like to donate to cancer research they can do so by going to the pancreatic cancer website. There will also be envelopes available from PANCAN for people to use. I however will not be handling any of the funds. This is something that a group of us have gotten together and decided to do to bring AWARENESS to Pancreatic Cancer and also to honor those who have been afflicted with this deadly disease. Hope to see you all there. Thank You.
