Town Hall to turn purple this evening for World Pancreatic Cancer Day

Rugby Editorial 21st Nov, 2019   0

THE TOWN hall will be lit up in purple this evening (Thursday November 21) in support of World Pancreatic Cancer Day.

Purple lights will shine on the front of the Evreux Way building from 4-8pm to encourage residents to find out more about pancreatic cancer and how to spot the signs of the disease.

Adam Norburn, executive director of Rugby Borough Council, said: “We are pleased to help raise awareness for World Pancreatic Cancer Day.

“The symptoms of pancreatic cancer are easily missed, so we hope that more awareness will help residents get an earlier diagnosis and better treatment options.

“Like a lot of organisations, many of our staff and councillors have been affected by cancer and, when we were asked to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer, we were keen to see what we could do to help.”

Symptoms of pancreatic cancer can include stomach and back pain, weight loss, digestive problems and loss of appetite.
