2017 has been an important year in many ways for James Macready-Bryan and his family. October is always a busy month, with the JMB Foundation’s big annual event, the Melbourne Marathon, and James’s birthday, coming just a few days apart. As the guest of honour on Marathon day, James enjoyed the activity and the sense of excitement that’s always so much a part of the atmosphere.
Following surgery last year, the pain James had been experiencing in his arms has been lessened significantly. As a result he spends much less time feeling distressed and uncomfortable.
James continues to find his hydrotherapy wonderful, and his music therapy seems to provide him with a lot of pleasure. James’s family are grateful for the people that surround James who love him and treat him with dignity.
