Who is Micki Love?
Micki Love knew that pancreatic cancer was one of the world’s toughest cancers. She also knew that progress against this disease required dedicated partners who provided the resources to accelerate research and improve treatments for patients everywhere. She knew – and wanted others to know — that hope was possible. That is why she became one of PanCAN’s most committed friends.
Micki’s first contact with PanCAN came as a donor after her mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Years later, Micki was also diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She reached out to our Patient Services program and an associate in Patient Central provided her with critical information about treatment options and support services.
Soon after, Micki participated in PurpleStride San Antonio and made a generous gift to PanCAN. A dedicated donor, she toured our national offices, meeting PanCAN CEO Julie Fleshman and Emily Lyons, the Patient Central Associate who had assisted Micki throughout her journey. On November 7, 2016, Micki passed away – but her legacy lives on through the significant gift she made to PanCAN, facilitated through a bequest in her living trust.
Planning your legacy offers peace of mind – you know that your charitable intentions are met, while also inspiring friends, family and the larger pancreatic cancer community. Gifts may be revocable, should the need arise.
We hope you join with other visionaries like you in The Micki Love Society. Can we count on you?
