“Well, that was a good time.” Those were the words Max spoke as we left the hospital after a 10-day stay when he was first diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Despite having endured chemotherapy, spinal taps, bone marrow aspirations, surgery to insert a central line and the start of high dose steroids, our then two-year old son was still able to find a silver lining.
Throughout his 3 ½ years of active treatment, Max embraced his battle with Leukemia with an endless amount of courage, acceptance and resiliency. His positive nature and can-do spirit throughout his treatment were true blessings and a testament to his character.
Today, Max’s is a thriving boy with an endless amount of energy, He loves all things sports, especially baseball and basketball, and enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He has a great send of humor and loves bacon, pizza and chocolate!
