Age At Accident
Maddoc was diagnosed with severe Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy, or HIE, which means that his brain did not get sufficient oxygen for several minutes resulting in brain tissue death. 95-100% of his brain was shown to be damaged via MRI scans. Team Luke Hope for Minds provided financial assistance twice which Maddoc’s family was able to use towards two 40-session Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treatments. Maddoc is improving slowly but surely. His family has seen improvements in his ability to smile, coo, and swallow among other things!
