New App Helps Families Battling Cancer


A new app is making it easier to educate families on the right kinds of drugs and treatments for their children who are battling cancer.


In 2009, the Conti family and their daughter
Nitalia were in the midst of the fight of her life as their 12-year-old battled brain cancer. After spending time in the hospital Nitalia a need for the other kids battling cancer and wanted to help. She told her parents we need to start a foundation. Shortly after, The Purple Society Foundation came to be and years later Nitalia is still being a blessing to others while up in heaven. In May 2017 they released a free app called The Purple Drug Guide App. This app helps educate families by providing everything they need to know about every cancer drug all in one place. Check out our video above for more on how the app works and Nitalia’s story.
