Cheif Executive Officer of The Max Foundation

Accelerating health equity has been The Max Foundation’s focus for over 25 years. Established to prevent other families from the devastation of losing a child to cancer, The Max Foundation is a bridge between patients and treatment, focusing on those no one else is helping and saving lives that would otherwise be lost.

Three decades after our family had to emigrate from Latin America to the U.S. to seek treatment for our child Max, today most new and highly effective cancer treatments are still unavailable to patients in many countries. This is partly due to a broadly held, old- world belief that cancer cannot be treated in the developing world. At The Max Foundation, we do not accept this belief and as a result, we have extended thousands of patients’ lives.

Since our founding, our focus has been on developing the systems needed to deliver lifesaving drugs safely and effectively to patients in low-and-middle-income countries, demonstrating that it can indeed be done. Our mission in the next five years is to change perceptions so it will no longer be acceptable to leave these patients behind. We have set our sights on an ambitious strategy to double our impact and treat thousands more patients, to expand partnerships across the global health sector, and to amplify our voice and influence.

Geography must not dictate one’s destiny. All people should be able to face critical illness with dignity and hope. We can prevent unnecessary suffering and premature death and because we can, we must.

As humanitarians and as leaders, we have a moral imperative to ensure access to safe, high-impact medicine for all patients now. We urge you to join us as we expand The Max Foundation’s lifesaving work around the globe.

Our vision is a world where access to high-impact medicines, where geography is not destiny, and where all people can strive for health with dignity and hope.

We are on a mission to accelerate health equity.

We do this by delivering medication, technology, and services to patients facing cancer and other critical illnesses, focusing our energy on those no one else is helping.

We are driven by a set of core beliefs

  • We believe all human life has equal value, and all people facing illness deserve access to immediate and effective treatment no matter where they live.
  • We believe achieving health equity requires a holistic approach and we work collaboratively at all levels, knowing the result is better for it.
  • We believe progress requires dedication beyond the ordinary. We forge new pathways whenever necessary and are obsessed with overcoming any obstacle to save more lives.
  • We believe we must develop innovative solutions. We aim to think ambitiously and to leverage novel technologies and approaches to improve outcomes for our patients.

Treat More Patients

Priority 1

Invest in our regional teams and strengthen our local presence

Our regional teams are our greatest asset and facilitate all our patient programming across the globe. Over the next five years we will build on these already robust regional teams and expand our local capability through recruitment, training, and support. Our expansive network of physicians and partner institutions are part of these teams and we will increasingly supply them with enhanced information and tools.
