Max’s Story

Welcome to Max Jacobson's CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep all of our friends and family updated and this will serve as the main source of communication for his recovery as he continues to fight and as we learn more as he progresses. Max's family truly appreciates your support and words of hope and encouragement during this crucial time.

Please note that we do not wish for you to make a monetary donation to the CaringBridge site directly. More information on fundraising efforts for Max and his family will be shared as soon as they become available. 

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and positive thoughts.

October 7

Max is back in Las Vegas and staying busy between setting up his new in-home and outpatient health care regimen and also making up for lost time socially by attending events and catching up with friends who have missed him dearly. The latest "Chefs to the Max" event on Sept 28th was a huge success and raised over $20,000 to assist the Jacobson's with their ever-mounting medical bills. A full recap is here: http://vegasseven.com/2014/10/06/maxs-sunday-supper-success/ and photos are here: https://m.app.box.com/view_shared/ojdciwydvvvqrybd6bep

The first thing everyone says when they see him is that he looks like a million bucks, which he truly does! You would never know by looking at him the trauma he has been through since the accident. Physically he is still the ox he always was but he still struggles with his speech and memory, and is frustrated by the fact that he can "eat" but he cannot "taste" anything. We keep reminding him that at least he's not getting his nutrients through a tube and his doctors are confident that his taste senses will eventually return.

Overall it's a miracle that he's home and doing so well. We are all so thankful to have Max back!
