Help Heal Little Max

Max's Story

On November 20, 2017, 13 month-old Max Gamble suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result of child abuse by a caretaker. In the matter of seconds, Max went from being a playful, happy child to being in a state of unresponsiveness. He has undergone surgeries to relieve bleeding and swelling on the brain and now has a permanent shunt to drain fluid. He also needs a feeding tube to eat.

Max's parents were hoping to get him into an in-patient physical therapy at Cleveland Clinic but were turned down because Max is still not responsive enough.

At this time, it is unclear whether Max will ever be able to live a normal life. He is facing a lifetime of therapy and care.

All money raised will go directly to Max's family to help with his care and any other expenses needed to help Max have the best possible life. 

Please keep Max and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
