Annual Giving Campaign: I am Fan. I am Maximo.
My name is Fan and October 21st is my birthday. I would not be here if it wasn’t for The Max Foundation (Max), and I wish to donate my birthday to support their Annual Giving Campaign.
I was a lights-out candle when I was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Until one day, I met you, Max. You were so generous, you saved my life by lightening up my candle. You gave me lights and you showed me what the meaning of life is. You always remind me to Maximize my life every day.
Max, you light up my life! You must be very happy to see my life now, I am living very well, I enjoy and Maximize my life every day and all my dreams have come true. And today, when I give to you, I extend your mission, your love and care, to others.
Max saved our life, we must make sure we live well every day and maximize our life to the fullest! We must extend The Max Foundation’s mission to give help and support to our cancer community.
Please support The Max Foundation’s Annual Giving Campaign.

Annual Giving Campaign: When we honor Max, we honor everyone touched by cancer
October 19th marks the anniversary of Max’s birthday. For all of us who have been touched by his light and for those who today are propelled by his spirit, this day is a day to stop and remember that child, the teenager whose sweet smile warms up our hearts.
In a world where cancer is pandemic, all of us are touched by cancer. We all have someone in our lives just as dear to us as Max, who has no doubt shown us tremendous courage through their cancer journey.
In Max's honor and on behalf of your loved ones around the world, The Max Foundation continues to make global access to treatment, care and support our top priority. In order to further our work, we are looking to you, our global community to join us as partners in our mission.
Please make a donation to The Max Foundation today, and know that when you give to Max, you are giving dignity and hope in the face of cancer.

And the available resources, healthcare systems, and needs of people living with cancer in the region is equally diverse. That is why the impact of the Maximize Life Global Cancer Awareness Campaign is so important in the region!
Patient associations from six countries are hosting Maximize Life Campaign events this October with the goals of increasing awareness, reducing stigma and building communities of mutual support. Mei Ching, the Director of Max Malaysia and Head of Strategic Partnerships for the Asia Pacific Region, is here to tell us about some of the challenges faced by her region and the important work these organizations are doing to combat them.

Fourteen patient associations are involved with the Maximize Life Campaign this year and they have worked hard to bring a message of hope and support to their communities.
The Max Foundation has strong roots in the region, as Max was a native of Argentina and our organization began its work with families from Latin America. Mercedes, our Program Officer for Latin America, explains this legacy and its impact on this year's campaign for groups in the region.
