Max is aged 6 from Staffordshire. He was born at 34 weeks weighing 5lb 6oz. Within a couple of days Max became very poorly due to lack of calcium and sodium which unfortunately caused neonatal seizures and his oxygen to drop. We were told upon discharge that Max has damage to his brain called Periventricular Leukomalacia (PVL).
Max was diagnosed with Quadriplegic Spastic Cerebral Palsy as well as epilepsy.
Max works really hard trying to reach his goals but unfortunately the NHS doesn’t provide enough therapy and equipment for all Max’s needs so we want to fundraise for Just4Children to help him on his mission to move.
Thanks to donations from so many kind people Max was able to have SDR surgery at Alder Hey in June 2018. This has been life saving for Max.
His limbs are so much more comfortable and he is progressing well. For the next 2/3 years Max now needs intense private physio and specialised equipment to keep progressing and reaching his goals.
Max is an amazing happy cheeky sociable little boy so please give generously to help him in his mission to move with Just4Children.
