Max funds hit tar­get

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

TER­RI­TO­RI­ANS have dug deep over the past three days and raised more than $108,000 for baby boy Max Kirby.

The young­ster is bat­tling a can­cer­ous brain tu­mour and will go un­der the knife to­mor­row as Dr Char­lie Teo at­tempts to re­move the grade 2 ependy­moma from Max’s brain stem.

The op­er­a­tion is ex­pected to cost $110,000. Be­cause of the high cost, a GoFundMe ac­count was started and al­most 1200 peo­ple and busi­nesses have shown their gen­eros­ity, do­nat­ing an av­er­age of $90 each. Do­na­tions have ranged from $5 to $3000 from Keith Phelps.
