Bridgeport Conference Center Joins Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer

Friday was Purple with a Purpose day, designated to support the fight against pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Network Community Representative Annette Fetty-Santilli said there are plenty of ways to help the fight over the weekend

She teamed up with the West Virginia Jazz Society for Jazz and More for a Cure at the Bridgeport Conference Center.

Proceeds went to support PANCAN's mission to have more people than ever survive the disease.

"The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's goal is to double the current survival rate of six percent by the year 2020, and everything we do is built around that," said Fetty-Santilli.

Our own Alex Hines, Gretchen Ross, and Jeff Schrock were at Saturday night's event.
