    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    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.

      Update from the Page owner

      Hi there, I've been wanting to send you a personal message to say a massive heartfelt thank you for your donation and support in getting Max out to America. There are no words to describe the sinking feeling of helplessness when all available routes lead to an horrendous outcome that you know doesn’t need to be. Max is now getting the treatment he deserves because of you. YOUR attention, empathy and personal kindness got Max out here and I want you to know that it's proving to be absolutely the right route for him. I am posting updates on the Maxipotential page on Facebook. 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. Thank you again, you are exceptional. Saz. P.S. We do have a new crowdfunding page you can point people to at http://34.gs/JustGiving

      We had an amazing turnout at Cafe Mayhem this morning that raised £3k!! Many, many thanks to Gul and Ali for their donation of their cafe and food for 2 hours. The dads did a fabulous job - everyone commented on how surprisingly good the service was!

    Hi, I'm Saz - Max's mum. I've spent the last 7 or so years immersed in helping Max realise his full potential. That's thrown me headlong into researching, exploring options, and battling expert opinion. I've proven surgery wrong before and this time it's so much more serious...
