BENEFITING: MAX S LOVE PROJECT INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 06, 2013
Our names are Carolynn (Resident Physician at David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA), Isabelle (Cloud b, Gardena, CA) and Vincent (Post-Doctoral Researcher at David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA), and we will be running the Hollywood Half Marathon April 6th, 2013 to support MaxLove, a nonprofit foundation supporting SuperKids fighting cancer.
What is the MaxLove Foundation?
MaxLove, a nonprofit foundation, was created by the mother of Max, an amazing boy fighting a brain tumor. Max spent three weeks in the hospital during the summer of 2011, and like many small children who spend long periods in the hospital, came home with a fear of the dark. His mother turned to Cloud b, a company that manufactures products dedicated to helping children of all ages sleep better. Max’s mom bought a Cloud b Twilight Turtle, hoping the soothing stars would help him sleep. Max immediately identified the green stars as ‘healing stars’, and through his turtle, found a way to comfort himself, and start the healing process.
Max’s mom was so impressed with the effect of the Twilight Turtle on Max’s recovery that she started this foundation to provide therapeutic resources to all SuperKids fighting cancer. The SuperKids spend long periods of their childhood in the hospital, and the MaxLove’s mission is to directly fund comprehensive integrative care and research with the ultimate goal of supporting SuperKids in overcoming the odds—not only to survive but thrive. Comprehensive integrative care includes but is not limited to traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, massage, progressive diet and nutrition therapy, counseling, physical therapy/exercise, art/pet/music therapy, guided visualization.
Help us support Max and all SuperKids!
In partnership with Cloud b, MaxLove also provides SuperKids with a Cloud b Twilight Turtle. We are asking for donations to help support Max and all SuperKids: $15 to ship a Twilight Turtle package to a child, $30 to ship a Twilight Turtle package to a hospital. All donations, regardless of the amount, will be most appreciated. Thank you for your generosity!
Carolynn, Isabelle & Vincent
