Marvelous Max

When Max was two, he was displaying what appeared to be flu-like symptoms for several days. His family was very worried that he wasn’t starting to feel better. Eventually, due to his complex symptoms, Max was admitted to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Soon after admission, Max’s parents Mitchell and Raechel learned the unimaginable – Max was in respiratory and kidney failure and would need emergency hemodialysis to do the work for his failing kidneys.

In December 2016, Max got his long-awaited miracle. He received a new kidney from his mom, who was a direct donor match.

Today, Max is a healthy, vibrant six-year-old who loves super heroes, riding his bike and playing at the playground with his big sister. Nothing holds him back!
