Purple Parade Founder

Victoria, at just 14 years old, is proof that passion can accomplish more than we ever dreamed possible. Learn why she wanted to launch Purple Parade.

I am Victoria and Destroy Pancreatic Cancer’s founder, John Couvillon, is my dad. Shortly after he passed away, I decided that I wanted to continue my papa’s work of finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. I came to the conclusion that the most fun and efficient way to raise money for this cause would be to have a fun run. That is how the idea of Purple Parade came to be.

I believe that no child, wife or husband, mother or father, brother or sister, or any loved one should have to lose someone to this horrible disease. Until we work together and take a stand, very few advances will be made in curing this “death sentence.” 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support! I can’t wait to see at our third annual Purple Parade. (Date to be announced soon!)


Please give our 2018 Purple Parade sponsors a big round of applause!

Pancreatic cancer is everyone’s fight. 


For those who achieve remission from pancreatic cancer, that’s exactly how they live. Every 90 days, they boldly stare down fear as they walk into the hospital for routine scans.

There’s nothing comforting about having a disease with survival rates moving in the wrong direction. Just this year, pancreatic cancer became the third leading cause of all cancer deaths, and it’s expected to move to the second leading cause by 2020.

For those of us surviving this cancer, we stand for those who didn’t. We refuse to accept that anyone must live life just 90 days at a time. We will destroy pancreatic cancer. Will you join us at Purple Parade?


Our mission is simple—To destroy pancreatic cancer.
Our promise is guaranteed—To fund and advance research that leads to earlier detection and improved treatment options.
Our goal is within reach—To establish Hope and a Plan for all pancreatic cancer patients. The hope comes from the research and clinical trials performed under a true collaborative model. The plan supports today's patients in quickly developing a strategy to win the battle against pancreatic cancer.
