In March 2011, Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty suffered a severe concussion and broken vertebra during a hockey game – and was immediately taken to the MGH for treatment. Following his recovery in hospital, the young player established the Max Pacioretty Foundation to support the traumatic brain injury project and help purchase a state-of-the-art advanced High Performance MRI machine for the Hospital. Donations through the Montreal General Hospital Foundation are welcome and will be personally recognized by Max. To help Max reach the $3.5 million goal, click here.
