THE STORY:

Max, of Walton in Northern Kentucky, had a rare form of soft tissue cancer called alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, a disease that was already at Stage 4 when it was diagnosed shortly after he graduated from Transylvania University and was preparing to enter UK’s Patterson School of Diplomacy. He was an exceptionally bright student who, as one person put it, “had a promising future ahead of him.”

Max was a huge fan of the Transylvania University basketball team and had a reputation as a student for going all out to support the Pioneers. He was easy-going nature, his attitude about his illness and his general charisma that drew so many people to him. Estimates are that he had 100 visitors during his last week in the hospital.

Max lost his battle with cancer on November 4th, and will be sadly missed. His impact on those around him along with his impact he made on 3 Little Birds 4 Life will always be remembered.
