Welcome to the Team Max Spin 4 Kids fundraising page! We hope that you'll consider making a donation towards “Team Max” or even create your own fundraising page to help us reach our team goal as well as to honor the fight of Maxwell Holden who battled neuroblastoma (a cancer of the sympathetic nervous system and the most common cancer found in infants). Spin for Team Max and Spin 4 Kids.
“Our sweet Maxwell was diagnosed with stage IV high risk neuroblastoma at 16 months. Childhood Cancer was not on our radar, as I’m sure it is not for many families that are not directly impacted by it.
Max woke up every day with a brave face and a big smile. He was always the strongest - even on the days when we couldn’t be. Max taught everyone around him how to be strong, smile and be happy through it all. He loved music, dancing, his “Ellies”, Jack Skellington, basketball and anything that involved his big brother Cole.
Max fought long and hard for 2 years – he had 10 surgeries (with 3 being craniotomies) and went through countless chemo and immunotherapies. We had many ups and downs throughout treatment, but always believed Max would beat this disease. Sadly, we lost our beautiful boy in March this year. Cancer may have taken our son, but it can never take the beautiful spirit that he is or the positive impact he had on so many people.
One of the hardest things we learned through all of this is that there is not enough funding to provide the type of research that is needed to help kids like our son live the long lives they deserve. A lot of the “innovative” treatments Max received were over decades old. We can and must do better for our kids.” - Carrie + Tahj Holden
About Infinite Love
Infinite Love is a 100% volunteer-run 501c3 nonprofit foundation with the dual missions of 1) funding new pediatric cancer research (click here for an itemized list of what we've already funded), and 2) providing financial and emotional support to families currently fighting childhood cancer. Because there are no Infinite Love salaries, everything that you give goes entirely to our cause! Thanks to generous supporters like you, since 2013 we have funded over $1 million in research grants to some of our country's leading research hospitals and facilities and we've written thousands of dollars of support checks to childhood cancer families, given backyard makeovers, sent kids to sports events, built dream tree houses and we’ve unfortunately even covered the expenses for memorials (click here to read reviews about Infinite Love).
Please note that this Team Max page is raising funds for Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer where 100% of the proceeds will be used to fund research and to help families affected by childhood cancer. This fundraising page is not raising funds for Max's family directly.
