Max was 5 years old when he was diagnosed with one of the rarest brain tumors- DIPG. Only 150 kids a year are diagnosed with this brain tumor and the survival rate past 2 years is about 2%. It is a cancer that has NO cure and has had no real advancement in treatment in over 30 years. Max loved sushi, Star Wars, and Legos. He was such an old soul and the most loving kid you could ever meet. He was so brave and went through conformal radiation and experimental chemo and never complained. He trusted his Mom and Dad to help him get better, but we could only do so much. We are asking you to help find new treatments for this disease by supporting St. Baldricks and give other kids the chance they deserve. Please donate to this wonderful cause and learn more about Max and his Foundation at www.maxlacewell.org.
