    Story

    TEAM MAX are doing Tough Mudder on September 10th!

    Join us - 30 nutters will be completing the challenge of their life to help little Max get to America for life-changing therapies.


    Max's scoliosis requires surgery before his curve impacts his internal organs and becomes life threatening. It means inserting metal rods along the length of his spine. It's nasty, invasive surgery leaving a scar the full length of his back. He will require repeated surgeries every 3 to 6 months to lengthen the rods through his growth spurt from age 8 until12 and beyond. Ultimately he'll likely require his spine fused solid and be left with life-long disability and pain management.



    There's no cure or management in the UK - just observation until surgery is required. I know from my last few years of research that there are routes to a better outcome. Dedicated, multi-disciplinary scoliosis centres addressing physical, neurological and genetic influences. We've had one intensive therapy trip of 3 weeks that reduced his curve by around 50%. With that knowledge, irreversible surgery with life-long problems is simply not an option.


    I took Max to America January16th for 3 weeks. Max had immediate results and continues to improve - meaning he doesn't need have the barbaric surgery we do here in the UK. You can follow his story to date on his Facebook page 'Maxipotential'. I invite you to follow. It's amazing, fascinating and lovely to see his progress. Ultimately, I hope it will help a lot more people as I transition Max's fund into a charity to spearhead innovation in the UK.
