Tribute Wall

This is a space to honor and remember those in the KMF community who touch our lives and give us hope.

In loving memory of

Mitchell McIntire

Mitch's family has requested that those wishing to remember Mitch consider making a contribution to the Knox Martin Foundation. Mitchell ("Mitch") McIntire was called home on January 16, 2024 . Born in Gainesville, Georgia on April 8, 1997, Mitch was a beloved friend to all -- including our namesake Knox Martin. Mitch and Knox grew up together, attending Lakeview academy for middle school, participating in scouts for many years, and eventually becoming Eagle Scouts together in high school. The two remained close friends well into college and after graduation until Knox lost his life to brain cancer in 2020. We at the Knox Martin Foundation are so grateful to have known Mitch as a dedicated and constant supporter of our mission to fund innovative research on the most agressive forms of brain cancer. Mitch honored Knox's legacy with the time and energy he dedicated as a supporter from the very beginning. He attended Night For Knox— our annual fundraising gala in Atlanta, Georgia— in it's inaugural year, and every year thereafter. We will forever miss Mitch, cherish his heart for KMF, and remember the ways in which he served the KMF community. Mitch's family has requested that those wishing to remember Mitch consider making a contribution in his memory to KMF. Together, we are going to fund the next breakthrough in brain cancer research in honor of Knox and in honor of Mitch— two young men, two friends, whose lives were taken from us far too soon.


In loving memory of

Knox Martin

KMF was founded in honor and loving memory of beloved son, brother, friend, and Warrior Edward Knox Martin III.  Knox's life took an unexpected turn when he was diagnosed with brain cancer in September 2017. Despite the challenges posed by surgeries, treatments, and setbacks, Knox exemplified resilience throughout his brain cancer journey by continuing to set goals and embrace life to the fullest. Knox fought brain cancer for three inspiring years, and succumbed to the clutches of Glioblastoma in December 2020. He was 24 years old when he passed. Knox's life and legacy inspire the work we do at KMF each and every day. We are so grateful to have known him.
