The attached PDF captures the awesome emails that Kristi wrote to recap Maxer's journey thus far. In short, Max had unexplainable bruising, pale skin and seemed to be lethargic. At Aunt Sarah's 30th birthday party, Max was having fun with his cousins and got a bloody nose...that lasted an hour. They went to the doc the next day and found his platelets were extremely low, so they were referred to a hemotologist at Children's. After a few weeks of testing, questions, waiting, etc. Max was diagnosed with Acute Aplastic Anemia caused by Fanconi Anemia. Learn about Fanconi Anemia.
