Max Larsen was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis when he was 8 years old, and ever since he has been determined to find a cure. Now 13, Max has undergone a series of treatments, including physical therapy, a daily regimen of pills and biweekly injections, which have helped keep his illness under control.
Today, Max loves to play sports, hunt and fish. He and his family, who live in Denmark, Wisconsin, have become increasingly involved with the Arthritis Foundation. He donates proceeds of $10,000 or more from the cattle he raises and sells at the local livestock show.
