We are officially engaged…with our Seattle community!

The Max Foundation’s new headquarters is still buzzing with all the great energy that filled our offices thanks to new and old friends that attended our recent Open House on April 9th.  We welcomed our Seattle community to join us on what we called our world tour.  Visitors were invited to move from region to region in order to learn about our work in Asia Pacific, Africa, Latin America and, of course, North America.

Throughout the event, we were able to learn lots about our visitors and they seemed to, also, enjoy networking with each other.  Many of our current partner organizations were present and friends who have helped us along the way, from consultants to designers.  It was exciting to have everyone with us for our house-warming and it indeed made the world feel like a much smaller place!

Thanks to everyone who join us!  We look forward to staying connected! Please be sure to click through our gallery of photos to enjoy our event vicariously.

Partnering to bring access to PCR and mutation testing to the Philippines

For people living with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), regular disease monitoring using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing is critical to achieving successful health outcomes, however, these tests are simply affordable for many people living with CML in the Philippines. Last month, 30 people being treated for CML at Philippines General Hospital received free PCR and mutation tests thanks to a partnership between The Max Foundation, the International Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Foundation, SA Pathology and the University of Adelaide, and Fred Hutchinson Research Center.
