Max was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) in June 2010 aged two.

The first signs of Max being unwell appeared when he developed a limp but doctors put it down to growing pains. As Max’s limp worsened and he developed frequent fevers, his mum took him to hospital where he was diagnosed with ALL.

Max, now four, has helped to raise over £13,000 for the children’s cancer ward where he was treated at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and took part in Sir Ian Botham’s walk in 2012 to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research


“Max is doing very well. He’s over halfway through his three-year treatment and is now receiving his outpatient care at home. The only time we have to go to hospital is if he gets ill or picks up an infection.” said Max’s mum, Jodie.
