MILAN'S STORY

 

 

The idea of the fund blossomed from the struggles of Philip, Sharyn and Delano Capobianco during their battle for their daughter/sister,  Milan Maria Capobianco. Milan was born December 8, 2000.

 

She lived with an enthusiastic spirit, loved friends, life, fashion, and dance.  In December 2007 devastating news was received that Milan had an inoperable brain tumor.

An exhaustive search brought realization that there was little hope. Milan lost her battle on February 12, 2009 shortly after her 8th birthday.

 

That is where this journey starts  and the beginning of Milan’s Miracle Fund, our main effort to raise awareness and rally support for the cause to stop pediatric cancer and find a cure.

Just before Easter in 2013 Milan's father, Philip Capobianco, passed away suddenly. His passionate drive to help kids with inoperable brain tumors was inspirational to us all.

 

Our mission is summed up in the words of Philip, "Help us in our fight for the kids winning the battle against pediatric cancer…..help us remember the ones that we lost."
