Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - You will see a part of downtown Fargo "awash" in Purple this Thursday night.

For the first time ever, downtown Fargo is hosting a Pancreatic Cancer Vigil and Walk.

It will start at the main lobby at Sanford on Broadway. A short program will be followed by a Purple Light Walk to the HoDo.

HB-Sound and Light plans to drench the HoDo in Purple Light Thursday night.

All a way to remember those who have fought the battle and honor those just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Angela Boser/Pancreatic Awareness Group: “In fact 73 percent die in the first year and the 5 year survival is 6 percent, it is a silent killer and there are few symptoms and they are vague and they often attributed to other things.”

Pancreatic Cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
