Cancer touches all of us, but for people whose health needs are underserved, like Hira, the prospects are even scarier. Many countries have neglected populations that lack the necessary support and care needed for cancer patients. Thankfully, your gifts through The Max Foundation give Hira and countless others a chance to live beyond their cancer.
The Max Foundation's treatment access solutions get the necessary medication to the patients that need them the most. Through our partnerships with pharmaceutical companies and suppliers, we are able to get life-saving treatment right in the hands of patients.
We know that treatment alone is not enough. Fighting stigma, educating patients on managing their disease, and emotional support are all vital to see patients survive and live happily despite their diagnosis. You can make an impact by giving patients access to these necessary support channels.
Hira is like many patients who have turned their cancer diagnosis into a force for good. Whether it's through starting a support groups, advocating for patient rights, or simply joining the network of global patients facing cancer, we have seen leaders rise up and champion the global effort to support all people facing cancer.

In early 2017, Hira unexpectedly passed away from a malignancy unrelated to her CML. Her story inspires us to ensure everyone has the chance to face cancer with dignity and hope.
