I have been blessed beyond words in 50 years of life and have everything I could possibly want or need. For my birthday, I would like to celebrate the life of a 2 year-old little boy named Maxwell Freed. Maxwell loves his twin sister named Riley, cats and Elmo. His family calls him Mr. Snuggles because this boy is full of love.
Maxwell Freed also suffers from a rare neurological disease called SLC6A1 which causes a movement disorder, speech apraxia and debilitating epilepsy. Maxwell's story will not end here because his family has decided to change the world. A gene therapy is underway that would not only treat Maxwell, but every child with this disorder. The family is actively fundraising to advance the therapy and every little bit helps.
Please help me celebrate my birthday by helping others have a chance to live!
