My Story

Matthew is a brave hero. He has been fighting ALL since December 2007. He already has two year in and will be completed with treatment in February 2011. He loves his preschool and playing sports. He takes ice skating lessons and loves to play hockey. He also enjoys fishing and crabbing in the summer. He does not know that he has cancer - only that he goes to the Cancer Center for treatment. His is a wonderful patient, all the doctors confirm! It is the only life he has known, since diagnosis at age 2 1/2.
