My Story

On July 13, 2000 my 4-yo son was diagnosed with a rare childhood liver-cancer, Hepatoblastoma but only after he had been seen by 5 different pediatricians in 6 months and diagnosed w/everything from 'viral' to 'anemic'.   The next 2 years Matthew endured 10 rounds of chemo; an 11-hour liver-resection at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore MD; multiple surgeries; radiation at Emory hospital in Atlanta; and last, brain surgery.  
Despite massive prayers, an abundance of faith and alternative treatments, Matthew passed away at 6 years old on August 25, 2002.
Please donate to find a cure for childhood cancer - no child should ever have to fight this battle.
