Julie and Lee’s youngest child, Maxwell Lewis Johnson, started treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia a long time ago, back in Dec 1996.

Although, sadly, Maxwell lost his battle after a Bone Marrow Transplant, they remembered their time at Jimmy’s with love and pride in the braveness that Maxwell approached each milestone along his journey. Every moment they could have filled with love and laughter for Max alongside his brother Jem and Sister Jay, they did. To honour their wonderful little boy (and brother) they recently hosted MaxMusic, a concert attended by around 180 guests in support of the Candlelighters Charity, and were delighted to have raised a staggering £5000 for such a fantastic cause.
