Our Mission

“Help us in our fight for the kids winning the battle against pediatric cancer…..help us remember the ones that we lost.” – Philip Capobianco

Milan’s Miracle Fund has a mission raise money in an effort to fund research to end pediatric cancer and to support families that have lost loved ones.

Our History

Milan’s Miracle Fund was established in 2011 after our beautiful and loving daughter passed from a form of pediatric cancer. Milan Maria Copabianco was born in December 2000 and lived eight wonderful years as an enthusiastic spirit, that loved her friends, family, fashion, and dance.

Milan’s struggle with her disease was our inspiration to start this organization and with the help of our community, we have raised nearly half a million dollars.

More Heartache For The Capobianco Family

Just before Easter in 2013, Milan’s father, Philip Capobianco, passed away suddenly. Running a business, being a grieving father, a supportive husband, Philip’s drive never wavered.

His passion for helping kids with inoperable brain tumors was inspirational to us all.
