If you or a loved one has been personally affected by pancreatic cancer and is getting ready for college or technical school, please check out our scholarship! We want to help you further your education and to maybe ease the burden pancreatic cancer has on your life.

At Purple Pansies, we have felt the effects of pancreatic cancer on a personal level, and we understand the devastating affect it can have on the entire family unit.
