Our story

Our big Yes Moment

The Yes Collective was born over a decade ago when we had our first big Yes Moment. Our then four-year-old son Max had an MRI that showed a huge mass in his brain. The next day he had a surgery that confirmed that he would be fighting this disease for the rest of his life. A week later, still in the ICU, we had both exhausted our tears and we knew that we were at a crossroads as a family. We promised each other that we would do whatever it takes to thrive together, as a family, in the face of every challenge that comes our way. This was our first Yes Moment.

Our mission at the Yes Collective is to support all parents through their Yes Moments – those times when we’re overwhelmed, stressed, and exhausted but we say Yes to growing however we need to for the sake of our family.

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.
