October 19th marks the anniversary of Max’s birthday; and though he has been gone for 22 years, to all us who cherished him, he will always be the young, carefree and full of life child we remember.
His name today is a symbol of hope; his spirit living in each person touched by his legacy. Today we see his presence in Celebration of Life events as far as the Sudan, Pakistan, India, and Venezuela. We feel his spirit in the courage of survivors around the world who have embraced Max and carry on his memory. The MAX Foundation is MAX’s spirit set free by the courage of so many patients, survivors and partners around the world. As a cancer survivor in Honduras, so simply yet eloquently expressed through her art: “It is a big tree with many fruits and a heart in the trunk. The tree is Max, the fruit is his legacy, and the heart means his life beating in all the patients”.
In honor of Max’s birthday anniversary, we invite you to support our efforts so that his life will continue to beat in each person living with blood cancer or rare cancer worldwide. Let us celebrate his birthday by supporting those who need us the most. Contributions received during October will go to our patient emergency fund and directly be used to support diagnostic testing for patients.
