New look. Same commitment.

After more than 15 years as an established international NGO, The Max Foundation (Max) has taken an exciting step towards the next phase of our organizational life by launching new branding to carry our mission forward. 

Through the branding process, we sought input from community stakeholders, as well as expertise from graphic and communications consultants in order to fully incorporate your vision into our bolstered platform.

The focal point of Max’s new branding is a refreshed logo that still references the shape of the globe and harkens to the oceanic blue color, with a look that reflects our patient-centered wraparound services for people living with cancer around the world.

Beyond our refreshed logo, our branding enhancements also encompass an updated mission statement, tagline and organizational statement which will be shared through our upcoming annual report, website and social media channels.

This revitalization will leverage our growth and visibility as leaders within the arena of global health shaping the narrative around the importance of access to treatment, care and support for years to come.

We welcome the momentum of these exciting enhancements and look forward to our continued collaboration in creating a world where all people facing cancer live with dignity and hope.

The Role of Patient Advocacy in Clinical Trials

Bettina Ryll, a melanoma patient advocate from Sweden, recently gave a talk about the importance of patient involvement in clinical trials at a patient advocacy training organized by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTIC). Her talk raises some very interesting points about the role of patients and patient advocates in the clinical trials process, as well as the potential for greater collaboration in the future with researchers, health authorities and industry partners.

Watch Ms. Ryll's powerful video message to all of us advocates, and learn more about the role of advocacy within clinical trials!

Light a candle with us on March 9th to honor Max

This March 9th, please join us in lighting a candle as we honor Max on the anniversary of the day he left us.  As our candles delicately light up each of our rooms, let’s pay special attention to how the light falls gently on each of us.  Each of us is touched by cancer in some way, and all of us carry on Max’s legacy in our hearts, in our actions, through our own daily courage and through our own daily work.  Within the sacred spaces of each of our rooms, as the light shines upon us, we will be united in spirit, in principle, and in our dedication to working together towards a cancer free world.

Friends who wish to share a personal message are invited to write in our Guestbook. Those who wish to commemorate Max’s honor and carry his legacy forward are welcome to send across a donation.

We thank everyone who stands with us in this journey.  You are our guiding light.
