Maddox is an adorable, (almost) 4 year old with Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy resulting from an hypoxic injury at birth. He's the middle child of 3 kids and full of so much joy. Maddox is non verbal, non mobile and takes all nutrition through a feeding tube. His family does all they can to give him the best quality of life. One of the things they have found most beneficial is a three week intensive therapy program in Los Angeles, California. This November Maddox will go for his fourth program. His private insurance will cover a small portion of it, but the family has to cover the remainder of the costs. At the intensive program they will work on gross motor strengthening, eating and speech. To learn more about Maddox and his journey, you can follow them on FB Team Maddox.
