Ten-year-old Max Page filled in Savannah Guthrie on what he's been up to since the commercial -- including more acting and playing some baseball. He also explained how he is using his personal battle with a heart condition to encourage other kids going through similar struggles.

"That's been amazing. I just love talking to kids and it makes me feel like I can tell them about my experience," said Max.

When Max was just three months old he had heart surgery and was given a pacemaker. He has had several surgeries since then, and doctors now say his prognosis looks good.

Now, Max is a junior ambassador at the Los Angeles hospital he receives treatment at and has lobbied on Capitol Hill for the Children's Hospital Association.

He is also a celebrity ambassador for the Children's Miracle Network. Way to go, Max!
