In April 2017, five and a half year old Max, a Summit resident, was diagnosed with leukemia, a cancer he developed after years of fighting a rare eye cancer called retinoblastoma. Despite his already long battle with cancer, Max is an imaginative, happy, and strong little boy, but he will need help defeating this disease for good. Not only does his treatment require many, many blood transfusions, but, to save his life, he will also need a bone marrow transplant using donated bone marrow. You can help Max and kids just like him.
