From Max's fundly page:
Who is Max Watson:
He is a 10 year boy with an extremely rare medical condition. He is the oldest known patient with a recently discovered genetic disease called Cobalamin X. His condition has caused multiple permanent disability that has existed from birth.
Purpose of the fundraiser:
Raise funds for home modifications and medical care for Max Watson.
What will the money be spent on:
overhead ceiling lifts
handicap accessible home modifications
wheelchair ramps to get into house
How do I know the money will be spent appropriately:
The Maximilian M. Watson Trust is a special needs trust registered in the State of Colorado to distribute monies in support of this child. All funds are accounted for and distributed by the Trust.
Friends near and far, we've hit an inflection point. In 10 years time, Max's family been able to meet most of Max's needs through personal means and insurance coverage. They are now at a point that exceeds their ability to meets his needs.
Max has experienced tremendous growth this past year. He has doubled his weight and had a 30% height change over the past year. His growth has caused sore muscles and challenging times for his parents.
They are in urgent need for some help.
His father has injured his back and right shoulder moving Max. The shoulder injuries could end up requiring surgery if they cannot minimize the lifts. His mother still tries to move him but Max is now 80% of her weight. With his current weight trajectories, he will weigh more than she does by late Spring.
We are conducting an audacious fundraiser to raise funds to cover the adaptations they will need for their home. The estimated cost that will prepare them for the next 10 years is $100,000. This will cover a complete remodel of Max's bathroom, an overhead ceiling track system to move Max safely through the house, wheelchair ramps to safely move him in and out of the house, weekly therapies and monthly medicines not covered by insurance.
