ABOUT MAX AND THE BACKGROUND TO THE LOOM-A-THON FUNDRAISER: SuperMax is fighting brain cancer. He was diagnosed when he was 4 1/2 and he'll be turning 7 on February 12th. Check out his story at www.facebook.com/teamsupermax. Along with Max's conventional treatments (surgery, chemo, etc.) we have always utilized every integrative and complementary therapeutic tool available to us such as diet, acupuncture, positive healing narratives, massage, herbs, supplements, exercise, and a variety of therapies. Max has been fighting hard for the past 2 1/2 years and has more ahead. He will begin radiation therapy in the next few weeks. We know that it is all of the extra complementary therapies that have helped Max **thrive** through these harsh treatments and surgeries. We believe that *every* child facing down cancer and life-threatening illnesses should have FULL access to these complementary treatment modalities and, with that, we started a nonprofit organization, MaxLove Project, to forward our mission of helping other families with what has helped Max so much.

Essential to Max's thrivership over the past 2 1/2 years is Ruth McCarty, M.S., L.Ac. of Open Mind Modalities. See our cover photo for a picture of Ruth and Max. Ruth is a pioneer in the field of pediatric acupuncture and applications of Traditional Chinese Medicine for kids facing all kinds of challenges. She has been working with kids fighting cancer for decades. Ruth brought acupuncture, acupressure, supplements and essential oils to Max's hospital, CHOC Children's. It's one of the few children's hospitals that offers these services with inpatient care. The services are privately/grant funded however. IT IS OUR GOAL, through this event, to fund these services to be offered at the Outpatient Infusion Center as well. By supporting the growth of this model program we hope to export it to other children's hospitals, so that the integrative approach will catch fire to benefit all kids. 

ABOUT MAX & THE RAINBOW LOOM & A WORLD RECORD:
Max is so incredibly passionate about the Rainbow Loom. Through quite a few surgeries recently Max learned to Loom, watching YouTube videos and creating new designs, sometimes just hours after surgery. So, on MARCH 1st, Max and school children from across the area will join forces to create the LONGEST RAINBOW LOOM CHAIN IN THE WORLD! We have applied to the Guinness Book of World Records! The goal is to raise funds for the Complementary and Alternative Medicine Center at CHOC Children's Hospital, headed up by Ruth McCarty AND to RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT PEDIATRIC CANCERS. Cancer kills more kids in the United States than most other life-threatening diseases combined. This is a GREAT way for kids to stand up for kids!
