Celebrated across the United States on the fourth Thursday of November, Thanksgiving is not just a holiday, it is a time for family; a time for reflection and gratitude; a moment to take stock of what we have. As all of us prepare to either travel back home or to receive our family members in our homes, we are reminded that the most valuable thing we have is each other.

At my home as in many homes, it is a tradition to go around the Thanksgiving dinner table sharing what we are thankful for. For me, I am thankful for this most extraordinary journey which has brought each and every one of you into my life. On this holiday, I am most grateful as I think of you, my friends, my partners, my worldwide family.

On behalf of the team at The Max Foundation, we would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude for your support and your commitment. You are our inspiration and together we will continue our joint efforts to ensure that any person who has to face cancer can do it with dignity and with hope, no matter where they live.

I would like to wish everyone a safe and peaceful Thanksgiving. May your home be filled with love and laughter, today and always.
