In India, The Max Foundation is partnering with The Friends of Max, a patient support group consisting mainly of people and families impacted directly/indirectly by a diagnosis of Cancer. The Maximo and The Big C is the product of love by a group of individuals who have dedicated themselves to serving our global community.
