The ‘Fondazione Bianca Ballabio’ springs from the commitment of devoted parents Michela and Massimo to perpetuate the memory of their much beloved, lovely only daughter Bianca.
Bianca was twenty years old in 2019/2020 enrolled on her first year of Medical studies at the Medicine and Chirurgy University. On the 27th July, 2020 she completed all her exams ahead of the faculty year’s end after a long period of tireless and determined study. All attained during the global Corona Virus pandemic.
Bianca loved learning. Her overriding passion was for medicine’s welfare of others at the Medical Faculty she had chosen. With her own perseverance, personal commitment and determination to study and give she loved her vocation within the whole Faculty.
Tragically, five days after her last university exam, Bianca was the innocent victim of an accident caused by a car driver. Transferred by helicopter, in a coma, to the San Gerardo Hospital of Monza her battle for life would last nine days. On 11th August, 2020 Bianca died.
We, Bianca’s parents, Michela and Massimo, believe the first act Bianca would have wished for was that her organs be donated to help others. This was done.
Bianca was a straight forward, natural, open, happy young lady, always to be heard singing, with a bright smile for everybody. She loved her life.
Her premature death leaves a huge void which necessitates something key she would be proud of to help others – Medicine – her first love after family and friends.
It is with this shared passion that, we, Bianca’s loving parents have worked to create and donate ‘Fondazione Bianca Ballabio’ to help others as she would have wished.
A medical charity holding dear the name Bianca Ballabio and her memory always.
