Testimonials

At The Max Foundation, our reason for being here is the people we touch. Following is a list of letters from people we have been privileged to help. They hold expressions of thanks and stories of hope and they remind us of the reason we come to work every day.

We present them to you as they came to us - from many countries and in multiple languages with the color and beauty of those who wrote them. We have made minor grammatical and spelling changes only in cases where the reader's understanding might have otherwise been in jeopardy and we have removed names to protect the privacy of the patients.

We hope that you will find in these letters, as we have, an appreciation for the real heroes in this struggle - the patients and their families, a sense of hope, and an inspiration to reach out and make a difference in the life of someone who is fighting to win against cancer.

April 02, 2014 - I wanted to thank you right away for informing me of this great news. Reaching you a few months ago really brought some peace to our spirits. We were trying not to be too anxious while we couldn't help but feel desperate in the face of this dilemma. Your understanding and reassurance was shared with all that were trying to help us and guided us to your link at the Max Foundation. Thank you so much for what you do at the Foundation and the way you do it. I am a teacher and I love helping people see clear through what they are trying to know, understand, and use; so they can grow and live more deeply. Thank you for "walking with us", helping us "walk". We are so grateful that the Max Foundation makes it possible for my sister to receive this medication which she needs to be able to live the rest of her life. Caregiver from Haiti

Thanks so much. Caregiver from Liberia

September 21, 2011 - Señores The Max Foundation: Por este medio quiero expresar mi agradecimiento por tener presencia en Guatemala ya que es un país que no cuenta con los recursos para poder apoyar a personas con enfermedades tan fuertes como lo es el cáncer, especialmente quiero expresar mi agradecimiento a su representante quien desde el primer día que contactamos con ella ha sido una persona con un gran espíritu de servicio y gracias a sus gestiones recibimos una importante donación de un tratamiento que no estaba al alcance de nuestras manos, mi hijo de 21 años tiene un Linfoma no Hodgkins pos trasplante y necesita un tratamiento bastante largo y muy caro, la orientación y todo el apoyo que nos brindó su representante nos sirvió para poder seguir adelante. Quiero felicitarlos y exhortarlos para que sigan apoyando a más familias guatemaltecas que atraviesan por esta situación. - Familiar de sobreviviente en Guatemala

Mali

October 21, 2010 - My message to the patients suffering from this disease is above all, one of hope. I would like them all to do whatever they can to feel good and confident. To keep refusing, and mentally pushing the disease out of them. They need to be grateful and to have an unwaivable faith, so that to attract the best to themselves. Here the worst of enemies is desperation, fear bad thoughts, and the lack of love. Feeling good despite the disease is fundamental. We have already come a long way since the discovery of glivec, I am very sure, with the help of the almighty, and people of good, that our future is more secured than it appears. -Patient from Mali

Honduras

October 13, 2010 - We are grateful to the Max Foundation, with all the people that work with this institution, that always gave us all the support in this serious case of my relative, a person with few resources and for the confidence they had, the cooperation they gave us was larger than a human being can receive in these difficult times. At this time he is in the recovery process, thanks once again to The Max Foundation and all their staff, who strove for the best. God bless all these people who made all this possible, in the end God sees everything and somehow you will receive your reward. Their support has been great. We wish you the best success in your daily work, and once again thanks so much to all of you. - Caregiver from Honduras

October 08, 2010 - I would also like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself my wife, and my son to thank you for giving me a chance to have time with them and see my son grow up. At this stage he is 18 months old. I dreaded the idea of him not having any memory of me, other than photographs or recollections given to him by my wife. The assistance you afforded me bares the same value as people wanting to put a price on life.......YOU SIMPLY CANNOT. Again our deepest thanks and gratitude for all your efforts in the fight and eventual demise of this dreaded and unwanted resident in my body.

India

January 13, 2006 - With your kind indulgence and praises to Our Lord, may I be allowed to share to you my distinctive experience. Let me start with a thanksgiving to the Almighty for giving me a wonderful and colorful life, where now I have truthfully valued its real meaning and beauty. It was in August 1998 when tragedy struck me: I was diagnosed with Chronic Malogeneous Leukemia (CML) at St. Luke’s Medical Center. Deep in shock and paranoia in the hours that followed, I was trembling and really scared. I was thinking that my end has finally come. As days passed, I was overcome by extreme depression. I had no direction. My only support came from my loving husband Peping. I found it very hard to move forward – I cannot really see a single spark of light around, because I was so much afraid to walk and even try to take a step. Then came a point in my life where I really asked Lord: Why me? What was His plan? But even if I asked myself countless of times, it was difficult to find answers. (I was totally blocked with the idea that it should not be me. And so I went on to see my doctor regularly and as frequently asked how I can be cured. But their answers would simply mean, “There are no guarantees.” And so I wondered how I will face life again if my predicament cannot be solved easily. I had second thoughts whether to take medication or not, since I kept on denying to myself that I am not sick. That I am not going to die. Only after sometime, I had to resort to the immediate treatment of Litalir and Interferon, since I was starting to feel the ravages of the symptoms of cancer. The process has been literally been “killing” my body…as well as my faith. I started to have feelings of rejection...feelings that I would not be able to recover anymore…that I could not regain my personal health. My mindset was that I am getting weak. That I am dying. That I am hopeless. At first I could not believe the changes that were happening to me. My former friends and co-workers almost did not recognize me, for my skin had become rough, severely dry and dark in color. I lost almost 35 pounds. More over, I began panicking and crying every time I see strands of my hair falling out. Clothes I have been wearing before started to fit loose. The more medications I take, the more I got weak. But still, God really paved His way to meet me halfway. Eventually, after a few months of treatment, I started thinking that somehow I might be cured. My family and I began to solicit blood donations to replace what I have consumed. Seeking its need would be torture to my body, but serving God through acceptance of this event gave me a lot of inspiration to treat it as a food for my soul. I said to myself that if I "fight" for my own life, the longer it would be for me to still be with my family. Of course, I would never want a single moment pass by without being with the ones I so dearly cherish. And so I never wasted time. I kept up with my personal struggle for almost five years. I did not give up. God had His way of keeping the romantic flame between me my husband alive. Peping comforted me all the time; he understood my shortcomings, and filled-in my concerns for our children. Since then, my life found a direction. I got the approval from the Max Foundation, and started to medicate with the drug Glivec on May 13, 2003 - it became my wonder and miracle drug. And many significant improvements happened in my body. Truly, nothing is impossible with the Lord, if we put 100% faith in Him. God is really good. I became very grateful because I had not only proven God's grand design for me and my family. Now, I only fully understood that all of God’s plans have purposes. Rio Diaz-Cojuanco was also true in saying “If I never had cancer, I wouldn’t have found this much love for others, or received just as much love from them.” Oftentimes, I have neglected Him. Now I value every single opportunity He has been giving me. Before, I was not aware that I have been overlooking His graces. Now I am cherishing each precious second with Him. Yesterday I was crying; today I am rejoicing. And I will keep on praising Him for this wonderful miracle I have gone through. As it was said, “Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him to help you do it, and He will.” And in my case, He really did. This transformation can happen to anyone by just believing in Him. Lift up your whole lives to Him, and you will be healed. He knows everything. We just have to offer ourselves to the Lord, because we owe everything to Him. He has the power to add one more day to our lives. He has the power to bring back our weakening bodies to the pink of health. He has power in everything. So be willing to sacrifice everything to Him by saying “Lord if it is Your will, let it be done.” And so, by sharing a part of my life to you, I earnestly hope that I have shared a sense of enlightenment. I hope I was able to impart values that can help you as you go through life. I will keep on praying for all of you so that you, like me, will someday find the real happiness you have been waiting for. I would like to extend my sincere and heartfelt appreciation to the Max Foundation, to all its staff, to Ms. Nelia Medina, and to all the attending physicians who gave me strength and new hope. God bless us all!

Russia

March 28, 2006 - My Story It all started in January 2001 when I decided to go on diet following the instructions of a popular French dietician Montegnaque. I stopped consuming bread, milk, sugar, pasta, potatoes, candies, cakes, sausages and many other tasty things to reduce my weight. At that time the scales showed 110 kgs… Alcohol was out of the question. I was monitoring my progress intensively and by May same year I happily reported my success to my wife – trimmed and shapely I had lost 25 kgs. But my success story was tarnished by acute pneumonia and soon I was confined to a medical ward at the municipal hospital in Moscow. They gave me shots of antibiotics and three weeks later I was contemplating my release when my physician told me there was another doctor eager to see me. A popular American joke raced through my mind. A young frog patient is informed about a female keen to know everything about him. - Shall I see her at a party? – The froggy asked. - No, you'll see her at her biology class. Next morning a gorgeous looking red-head appeared at the door of my colorless ward. She was wearing a white overall. - Follow me, please, - she murmured and I obligingly fell into step with the young lady. She brought me to the laboratory full of shining instruments. - You may lie on this table, - said the doctor and added, - on your back, please. I obliged and soon I saw an impressive syringe in her small hands. The needle looked extremely nasty. The doctor looked me in the eyes and placed herself on top of me. I did not mind wondering why the syringe was required… It took her several minutes to puncture my chest but she was a feather-weight indeed and her hands showed no strength in them. I decided to help her and hugged her tight. It worked, my chest broke open like a shell and she smiled through the tears rolling down her freckled cheeks. - Now I got it! – she exclaimed and rolled off me. - Did you try to pull my soul out? – I enquired politely. - O, no, it was a bone marrow aspiration. Your white cell count is too high. - What do I do now? – I asked. - Go back to your ward and wait. In a couple of days we'll know the result. This is how I learnt I had a CML. It was a municipal hospital without any hematologist on its medical staff. So I was lucky that an ordinary therapist was curious to see my WBC at the level of 140. Back in my ward I was little preoccupied with the diagnosis. My physician snapped - Don't worry. It's cancer but it is curable. - Cancer-smancer, - I thought trying to fix an antenna to my portable TV set. I was eager to see the soccer match in two hours time. Russia was to play against Croatia in a qualifying match for the European Cup. Four days later I was admitted to the Hematological Research Center in Moscow. The leading CML authority D.M.S. Anna Tourkina examined me thoroughly trying to feel my spleen. -It's enlarged, - she said and suggested that I should see my district hematologist and undergo Interpheron treatment. My family was around with drawn faces. Mine was square. - Go upstairs to the laboratory and let them take your current WBS count, - said the doctor and half an hour later she assigned me to a ward. My WBS count reached 400… During the following three weeks I was on hydrea. It worked out well for me and soon I was contemplating my future. The existing regular interferon treatment did not look attractive to me. Especially now that some patients in my ward were given new wonder drug called STS 571. The guys in the ward were calling it CIA drug feeling themselves on CIA payroll… I was surprisingly calm having been diagnosed with CML. The world around me did not collapse, the birds were chirping, so why should I bother. Thousands of patients somehow were surviving and managing their lives. Some were not, but I tried to concentrate on my own case. I blamed that French dietician for my predicament, but my doctors did not even consider the effect of my rapid weight loss. At last they told me that I was allowed to be part of the Protocol clinical trial of STI 571. And since June 2001 I became addicted to Glivec yellow pills. The only problem during the first three months was almost unbearable fatigue and joint and bone pain. I could hardly drag my feet to my students at the Plekhanov Economic Academy. And my journey by the underground took me 30 minutes only. Anyway Glivec proved to be extremely friendly to me and in four months time I developed a Complete Cytogenetic Response to the treatment. My doctors and friends were congratulating me and I felt myself a real hero. Till August 2005 I felt quite comfortable being on 6 pills of Glivec daily. In May 2005 I even achieved the second Complete Response. But it was the last friendly gesture on the part of Glivec and my problems were back in September 2005 with WBC count reaching 130. Myeloid cells were also actively showing up. I found myself in the hospital where they were treating my …pneumonia. The verdict of my hematologists was firm – you go off Glivec. - Let's see what's in store for you in the laboratories of Novartis, - they said and soon I learnt that the Swiss wizards never stopped and came up with two new 'molecules'. Now I pin my hopes on Novartis' wisdom introducing AMN 107 to the market and new clinical trials of BMS (Bristol Mayers of Germany) in Moscow. In the meantime I am on Hydrea, whose side effects we'd better never discuss… The last three months were emotional to me and I tried to concentrate on social work among fellow patients. We set up a CML SUPPORT GROUP, Moscow in January 2006 to unite patients and support them. It's a hell of a job, I'll tell you. People are apathetic and indifferent. Particularly the elderly ones. Little do they care about their own, let alone other people's problems. I feel my 13 years of service for UNICEF will enable me to enhance their interest in their own fate. I certainly do… All the time I've been struggling against CML my family stood with me in sickness and health, so did my doctors – compassionate, caring and considerate people. I'm also grateful to Novartis Company staff bringing Glivec to Russia and the Max Foundation people facilitating this drug supplies as humanitarian aid. Thanks to the efforts of these people I'm alive and kicking… Eugene

Pakistan

December 28, 2007 - With the daily hustle and bustle of life here in Pakistan, and the responsibilities bestowed upon me from my family, I could not think of the fact that such a calamity would happen to me. At first nobody could diagnose what was wrong with me. But once my diagnosis was confirmed, I got into a state of denial. I mean how could it happen to me. There is no way how could this happen to me. Then the anger set in. Why me! Why does God want me to go through this crisis? All I wanted was a little peace in my life. I did not want this additional burden on me; a burden which I could not even handle financially. I was totally broken. Then acceptance started to settle, and mortality became evident. I for the first time thought I am really going to die. What will happen to my family? How will my children survive? I was devastated. I was broken emotionally. This state affected my personal, professional and my social life. The society did not help me also. I felt like an outcast. I started to isolate myself from family, friends. I had no hope that I could hang on to. Who would I turn to who could help me. I felt helpless. During my visits to the clinic, Dr. Saleem Siddiqi gave me hope and referred me to Max Station. Given so much disappointments in life, I thought what have I got to lose. Who in their right mind would provide medications for free? As much as it was hard for me to believe that I had cancer, it was equally hard for me to believe that somebody could actually help me. The support I received from the clinic of Dr. Siddiqui, was unbelievable. He referred me to MaxStation to register with GIPAP. It was my first experience in life to request for registering in some program. With lot of apprehensions I met with MS in Islamabad and I wonder the emotional support I had which boost my moral and I learned how to live with dignity. I was undergone through the process of registration without hampering my ego/ emotional feeling and finally able to get medicine free of cost. Now, after months of therapy, I am not only feeling better physically but also feeling strong, socially and emotionally. With the help of Max Foundation, and by the grace of God, I am now in remission. My morale is back, and I am looking forward to live life once again. I am thankful to God, that there is still a little bit of humanity left in this world, and I was the recipient of this grace. Patient from Pakistan

April 04, 2008 - Gracias a DIOS me encuentro en una etapa especial de mi vida, una por que gracias a el, al avance de la ciencia, a la Fundacion Max, a mi querido Dr. Mojica me encuentro en el estado optimo de salud que tengo, y dos al nacimiento de mi princesita. En mis examenes periodicos desde el uso de GLEEVEC, me he mantenido en los valores normales de una persona, sin alteraciones en los indicadores. En realidad, como lo he expresado en ocasiones anteriores, mi entrada al programa de la Fundacion Max se debio a la intervencion divina, por un lado la persona amiga de mi familia en Miami que fue la que nos proveyo el contacto y la otra ayuda que estoy seguro recibi, la de Maximiliano, quien desde el cielo ve como el milagro de la vida a llegado a miles de personas alrededor del mundo gracias a el.

Kenya

July 18, 2008 - Dear Sir/Madam First of all I want to express sincere gratitude from my family and myself to the Max Foundation, Novartis and my physician for making my treatment possible. We would honestly have not known where to start as we understand the financial costs of this treatment are way beyond our means. Neither do we know how we can ever thank the Max Foundation for the generosity they have shown to us and many others on this programme. We can only offer prayers for you to continue to succeed in what you are doing and can only thank God in seeing a testimony when we remember Mathew 25: 37-40 "then the righteous will answer him, 'lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?. The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' Just thinking of this and what you are doing has changed my life in that whatever I do I must serve others first. May the Lord bless you mightily in the work that you are doing. Regards Kenya

August 21, 2008 - Thanks for this e.mail. You are one person that my wife and me can never forget. I remember when we were heart broken and sad to know that I was suffering from CML and could not hold back my tears, you being so young, took our hands and assured us that things will be better, you were the one to give us the confidence and courage to stand up to this illness. I can never thank you enough for it. God bless you and may you always be happy and prosperous in life. Though I am in a little bit of pain, but thanks to Max Foundation and all you lovely people and also most importantly [my doctor], (who is not only a wonderful human being but a gentleman doctor) that I am much better and can walk about without much discomfort. This is a fact that I raise you all up in prayer and thank our Almighty God that he has associated me with all of you. God bless you. - Indian patient

Philippines

January 14, 2009 - To The Max Foundation and GIPAP, Hello, one of your recipients. I would like to thank you for supporting me all the way through sharing to me your wonderful and successful medicine. Before, there are so many restrictions due to my weak physical condition, but now, I am able to do more work because of my strengthened physical condition, and I have to thank you for that. Currently, I am a fourth year high school here in Holy Rosary School of Pardo, Cebu City, Philippines. I am 16 years old and an honor student of our class. Our graduation is nearing and I thought of a nice course to take up in college, Medicine. But before that, I will take up Nursing as my preparatory course. I chose Medicine as my course so that when I become a doctor I will be able to help those people who are in need of my services. Being a fourth year student is difficult because of the tight schedules and many paper works and projects to do, but we have to strive to ensure ourselves of a better future. In this season of giving, I would like to give you my dearest gratitude. Without your unending support and help, I may not be what I am now. Once again, thank you so much and may you have a Merry Christmas. Sincerely yours, Philippines

March 03, 2009 - In the name of my family and myself,I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, that you helped me to go on fighting for my life. I have two little daughters and I want to raise and see how they grow up,educate them and share their lives together with my wife. As there are a lot of people in my situation, who need assistance in their difficult circumstances,(moral,financial and physical), it is good to have people like you, who can help us out in our desperate condition. The way you helped me to get my medication, was a relief for me and my family as I do not have the necessary funds nor financial means to provide my medication...

Primero quiero agradecerles a todos ustedes por la ayuda y apoyo recibido durante todo este tiempo que ha sido dificil pero junto a ustedes estoy saliendo adelante, Les comento buenas noticias ya que en el ultimo examen de médula en el cual se realizo estudio citogenetico y molecular, los resultados fueron alentadores ya que hubo una remision citogenetica total es decir 0% de cromosoma filadelphia y a demas en el molecular no hubo presencia de gen BCR/ABL los cuales fueron en valor de referencia negativo y un porcentaje del 0%. Ustedes comprenderan que eso emociono mucho a mi familia y a mi mismo por lo que estoy terriblemente agradecido con ustedes y a la vez tengo tan pocas palabras para expresarles la felicidad que tengo por que me han inyectado nuevas esperanzas, nuevos sueños, nuevas ilusiones que ustedes han hecho posible a travez de la medicacion, la misma que ha hecho un efecto grandioso, por que me encuentro bien fisicamente, hematologicamente y animicamente. Cada vez que veo un mensaje de ustedes siempre abro el e-mail convencido de que solo tienen buenas noticias para mi, y los recibo con alegria y optimismo.

India

May 13, 2009 - I lives in India... I am 25 years old. I am student. I can not forget that day when my doctor told me you diagnosed with CML. My family and of course me got a big shock. I thought I will leave the world in few days , but TMF gave me a new hope. The Max Foundation is working for noble cause. There is no doubt they assisted me a lot and altered my life and gave me a new path for not walk, for race. I would like to share about my years, which I spent with CML. In beginning I didn’t know about the gratitude of TMF and I was very frustrated due to lack of knowledge about CML. I explored that time about TMF when doctor told me about your foundation which helps helpless patients through your GIPAP. I believe that we are living with CML, not suffer from CML. Now I am very glad to say that I am enjoying my life with great zeal. My family and TMF team are cater for me help on every step of life. I must say I couldn't save my life without the help of TMF. I always pray to God for giving Support to TMF Team and long life to all CML patients. I love to listen your views and ready to share your valuable experiences with me. Lets go ahead and pray for best for all. -- Patient from India

June 15, 2009 - It was such a relief to hear from your foundation. I would like to commend your foundation for the good work you are doing, saving millions of lives across the globe and putting back smiles on faces (like mine). It is sad that Max, the person for whom this foundation was set up in his memory died but his death was not in vain as millions of deaths are being averted by this foundation I am 30+ and was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia a little over a year ago. I had to travel urgently to the UK for treatment. After a while though, I found out that I could not afford the Glivec which I had been placed on and became very depressed because I knew that I would have to stop taking the drugs which could eventually have caused my death, but thank God, someone informed my mom about your program in Ife (which at first I thought was too good to be true). I returned to Nigeria still skeptical and found for a fact that it is true. I really want you to know that my family and I are indeed very grateful and truly appreciate the work you are doing and if there is anyway in which we can help the foundation, we would be more than glad to. I am so grateful to have a second chance. Yours faithfully, Nigeria

Gracias por todo y que tengas una maravillosa noche buena y nuevo año que esta por comenzar que siga siendo igual o mejor que el que se va. Chile

January 11, 2010 - Con mucho agrado escribo estas líneas que llevan este emotivo saludo de Navidad. Es mi oración o petición tengan la mejor de las Navidades en compañía de la familia, que hagan un alto en sus actividades, que paren de pensar en los demás y piensen sólo en tener tranquilidad y paz. Pido tengan la paz que dá Dios, no la que nos dá el mundo. Al mismo tiempo deseo tengan lo mejor para el año que se inicia, el Señor les cuide y guarde de todo. Mi esposo también envía un afectuoso y cariñoso saludo, está muy contento ( a mi lado diciendo lo que escriba ) ¡ Bendiciones, y un gran abrazo ! Chile

March 22, 2010 - I would like to appreciate the immense contribution you have been making to assist patients with hematological malignancies. I was diagnosed with CML about 2years ago. I was started on Hydoxyurea felt very little relief. My doctors suggested the drug Imatinib which I thought I could buy through friends who go to the UK. I discovered that the drug is so costly that my whole income for a year can not buy even a one month's dose. I resigned in despair until my doctors learnt that I could access the drug free of charge here in Nigeria. I was then referred to Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife. I thank God, I am very well now-thanks for your assistance. May God give you the wisdom to carry on with your good work. I will also spread your gospel in this part of Nigeria. Thanks a lot Patient from Nigeria
