Live to the Max
While battling leukemia in 2001, Max Dwares began writing a book, but he eventually became too ill to finish it. After he passed away, his father, Kevin, wanted to complete the book, but it was too painful. One day, Kevin's granddaughter was visiting and saw her grandfather looking through some papers and folders. She asked what he was doing, and Kevin told her he was trying to write this book.
Little Maya, who is named after Max, said, "Pappa, I know Max died and lives in the sky. Finish the book." That was all the motivation Kevin needed to finish telling Max's story! Kevin finished the book, Live to the Max, which can be purchased on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. All proceeds will benefit the Hasbro Tomorrow Fund and the National Foundation for Transplants.
