AboutTheMaxLacewellFoundation: Max "Little Dude" Lacewell was a vibrant little boy who loved Star Wars, Legos and sushi. Two days before Halloween, at the age of five, he was diagnosed with one of the rarest, deadliest, and most aggressive forms of cancer- Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Less than 10% of the 100-150 kids diagnosed each year live beyond 18 months from diagnosis. In Max's case, he survived only nine more months, until the fourth of July. The Max Lacewell Foundation was created out of the determination of Max's family and friends to fight back against cancer. This not-for-profit aims to raise awareness and fund vital research of pediatric brain tumors, specifically, DIPG, with the ultimate goal of establishing a brain tumor research scholar at the Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. Since MLF is run exclusively through volunteers, 100% of the net proceeds of our fund raising events go directly toward this goal. Thanks to participants who support our fund raisers, we have raised over $250,000 to help others who face DIPG. We estimate that about $2 million would meet our goal of establishing the MLF scholar. But our ultimate goal is to make DIPG a thing of the past. Thank you for your partin moving us a little closer to that goal!
