Thanks to all for a successful Maximize Life Campaign!

As we approach the end of October, our 2014 Maximize Life Global Cancer Awareness Campaign draws to a close. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the patients, advocates, families, physicians, and community members who made this year's campaign a success. It is through the planning, passion and hard work of all of you that the spirit of Maximo came alive this month.

Partner organizations spent many months preparing for and carrying out events that were attended by almost 10,000 people in total, not including those reached indirectly! Awareness events took place in 28 countries this year, spreading a message of hope and courage to people living with cancer around the world. Kudos to all involved!

The Max Foundation's HQ now in Seattle's Global Health Hub

After more than 15 years in Edmonds, Washington, The Max Foundation is excited to announce we have moved our global headquarters to the city of Seattle.  We are pleased to be settling into our new office space on the north shore of Lake Union.

Our strategic organizational move brings us closer to the global health hub that Seattle has become.  We are exhilarated by the new and continuing opportunities for partnership and collaboration made possible by a closer proximity to our global health counterparts.  We welcome the opportunity to explore the greater Seattle community and to find ways to involve its members in our work.

We look forward to serving our global community from our new location in Seattle!
