Max Chapman is the inspiration for Tee It Up! For the GFPD. Max is 6 and lives in Bloomington, Illinois. He has PBD (Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorder). Max was diagnosed at 15 months old and PBD has impacted his vision, hearing, liver, muscle and bone strength, and general physical and cognitive development. There is currently no cure for PBD and more funding is needed for research.
Max is just one of the hundreds of kids battling PBD that will benefit from the research and support provided by the GFPD. Max is an incredibly sweet and happy little dude, and here is just a sample of the joy he brings into our lives.
