The color purple really can convey quite the powerful message.
Further proof of that was evidenced at the Power of Purple Party held recently in the Palmerton Area High School cafeteria.
Hosted by the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Palmerton & Surrounding Communities, the event served as the kick-off for the 11th annual event.
RoseMarie Murphy, American Cancer Society staff member, and a 12-year cancer survivor, served as guest speaker for the event.
Murphy stressed that individuals need to visit with their doctors whenever they don't feel right.
