Our story

From our family to yours

The Family Thrive was born in a children’s hospital room in 2011. Our son Max was unconscious and intubated after emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor. It was there that we made the pact that changed everything: Our family was going to thrive—no matter what. A month later we started the MaxLove Project, a non-profit dedicated to helping all childhood-cancer families achieve their best quality of life, during treatment and beyond.

After years of working with families facing the tallest odds, we’re bringing the thriving knowledge, tools and experts we’ve gathered to all families, everywhere. The Family Thrive is our vision for a platform where all families can get the tools they need—wherever they find themselves.

Our vision: Revenue from the Family Thrive will fund 100% of the overhead at MaxLove Project, which helps families thrive in the face of a cancer diagnosis.
