It is such an honor to be a part of Purple Pansies organization again this year! It is a cause dear to my heart as I am a Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer survivor. I have been fighting and beating this awful disease for 5 1/2 years. It is certainly a path I never expected to go down at the age of 31 and it has been a treacherous one at that! However, I hope that my story and how I have been touched by this cancer will inspire other cancer patients to keep fighting and beating this disease. According to research, this cancer is advancing to second place for cancer deaths in the next few years making it imperative to support the fight against Pancreatic cancer. Please help us beat this awful disease! It is because of the tireless efforts put forth by Maria and her organization that my doctors are able to research and provide hope and life for me and many other patients with Pancreatic cancer. God bless you and please feel free to contact me if you would like to talk further about my journey and how being a part of Purple Pansies can make a huge difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.

After retiring from AT&T, Maria’s mother, “Mama” Milian, worked at Casa Nuova until her death in 2007, when she died from pancreatic cancer. Maria has founded the Purple Pansies Organization in memory of beloved mother, to heighten the awareness of and to raise support for pancreatic cancer research. Purple Pansies has partnered with the TGEN Foundation, a leading research organization that is making significant progress in their search for causes and the cure of pancreatic cancer. Since its inception, Purple Pansies has raised over $400,000 for the cause. You can learn more about the Purple Pansies Organization at their website purplepansies.org.
