In June 2011 Gail Miller Prior of Corfe Mullen (Wimborne, Dorset), lost her 22 month old son, Max, to a rare condition called Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).
To commemorate Max's life a group of family, friends and colleagues have come together as TeamMAX.
TeamMAX: the goal of sponsorship and fundraising in 2013-2014 is to raise money to benefit our local Children's unit at Poole General Hospital. This unit is vital in the care of our children whether it be an emergency admission, routine operation or ongoing serious care.
TeamMAX have to date raised in excess of £40,000. Earlier this year a research study into Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) was granted via Epilepsy Action, jointly funded with Dravet Syndrome UK on behalf of TeamMAX to the University College of London (UCL), to look into the causes of heart arrhythmia and SUDEP in children with Epilepsy & seizure activity.
Max was an extremely happy little chap, perfectly normal and into everything, just like any other toddler. It is a tragedy that his life was cut short by a condition that is difficult to treat and in this day and age, impossible to cure.
If you would like to get involved and join us at our events, we would love to hear from you.
Thank you to all those who have supported and are part of TeamMAX
