Ways We Help
Partnerships with Local Hospitals
Project Purple is dedicated to provide financial support to patients in treatment for pancreatic cancer at Griffin Hospital (Derby) and The Lebo-DeSantie Center for Liver and Pancreatic Disease at St. Vincent’s Medical Center (Bridgeport). For example, Project Purple distributes care bags which contain a hat, blanket, and scarf, for newly diagnosed patients to help keep them comfortable during treatment regimens. Project Purple funds support groups for families in need of resources, compassion and encouragement.
Through collaborating with local hospitals, Project Purple is able to identify and assist those patients who are financially struggling with medical and pharmacy expenses related to their treatment program.
