Max's light shines on, thanks to you

Doctors elsewhere hadn’t seen anything like it—Max had a cyst that was overtaking his heart. Boston Children’s world-renowned cardiology team offered hope. Surgeons would perform an open-heart surgery to save him; he’d be the youngest patient to undergo the procedure. Max’s parents planned for a two-week hospital stay; three days later, they were home. The family credits Max’s success to the strength of their son—and the strength of their community at home and in Boston. The firefighters who made him a member. The surgeons who expertly cared for Max. And people like you. This report recognizes you for making life-saving care and world-changing research possible.
