This year it is 5 years since Seth died from pancreatic cancer just 33 short and heartbreaking days after diagnosis. To mark this anniversary and to help further build #sethslegacy I am asking if you might pledge to do #something4seth in November which is pancreatic cancer awareness month.

You can pledge here it can be something small or large, but be certain that whatever you do will help raise awareness of a disease where 1 in 4 people die within a month of diagnosis and 3 in 4 die within a year. 




Purple Hearts Snowmen

This cute little snowman has been especially designed and made by Peregrine Pottery in memory of Seth and in support of Pancreatic Cancer UK.

He will go on sale in October for pancreatic cancer awareness month.

My personal snowman is called Stan and you can follow the adventures of Stan the Snowman between now and November on the Purple Rainbow Pancreatic Cancer UK Pottery Facebook page.

Pledges For November

So far we have over 60 pledges to do #something4seth in November to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer awareness month. The pledges are in support of Pancreatic Cancer UK  and are in memory of my husband Seth Goodburn who died from pancreatic cancer in June 2014 just 33 days after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

They have been supporting Purple Rainbow since 2017 when they generously donated products for the Purple Rainbow Ball. Its great to work with a local company based in Staffordshire to bring you handmade products in the luscious purple color and its also great that Black Star supports local business and sources all its materials and tools from Stoke-on-Trent, the historical home of the pottery industry.
