Max Taylor receiving cancer treatment

United have reported that 19 year-old U23s prospect Max Taylor (formerly Dunne) has responded positively to cancer treatment after undergoing chemotherapy.

Understandably, few details have been released by the club about the lad's diagnosis and treatment, but this first message seems positive considering the circumstances.

The link below quotes Max, who has thanked his family and the club for their support, as well as the nurses at the Christie (Hospital and specialist cancer centre in Withington, for non-Mancs) and MacMillan Cancer Support.

It also links a fundraising page.

Mancunian and boyhood United fan Taylor signed his first professional contract twelve months ago. For any unfortunate enough not to have seen him play yet, I'd say he's a good, old fashioned centreback - strong in the air and in the tackle, with a calm head on his shoulders. Hopefully, we'll see him back in a United shirt in the not-too-distant future.

Thoughts with, and best wishes and all the luck in the world to Max and his family. 100% of the United faithful are firmly with you.

Some of you haven't read this properly

Its not a gofundme page... It's a virgin fundraising page for the 3 centres, charities and trusts he feels has helped him and wants to raise money for... The Christie, Macmillan and teen cancer trust

Its not a gofundme for his treatment etc

Yeah, it’s common practice for people that have received cancer treatment to promote charities for cancer research/care.

And it works, too.

I have a Marie Curie daffodil brooch-type thingy on all my jackets. I do donate, obviously, but many, many people ask me, almost daily, what the flower is all about.

It's good to spread the message. Get yourselves checked out. Pronto.
