Max You Got This and We Got You!

On August 6th, Max went to see his good friend Dr. Jessie Kautzman for his physical to play Butte High Football.  Like any kid or parent, you think its a routine check-up and out the door you go. Unfortunately, during the eye test Max could not see out of his Right Eye.  Max was referred to a specialist in Bozeman and was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor that is pushing on his Optic Nerve, causing blindness in his right eye.  This was debilitating for his parents to hear, but not Max...he looked at his mom and dad, without any hesitation whatsoever, and said "I got this!"  And he is right, he does!!  He will be headed to Salt Lake to an amazing Eye Care Center on Monday to conquer this.   We want to take any financial burden off their hands so they can concentrate on Max and their two other kids, Mylee and Bo.   Medical expenses, travel expenses and time away from work will add up very quickly for this family.  We all know how amazing this Family is and how much they have helped so many people.  Lets give back to them!  On behalf of all the Demarais's Friends and Family we thank you for all your support.  #maxstrong #buttetough
