My Story

Matthew was diagnosed on May 13, 2008 - What a trooper he was all those doctors poking and testing his little body, He was so sick and yet he still could smile, laugh and make your day brighter. You wouldn't have even thought that he had been living with cancer (ALL) for the last 6 years. He looked like a normal boy but was still undergoing treatment once a month and he loved to go to clinic. There is so much to say about Matthew, he loved to ride his bike and make new friends everyday.Matthew was always very proud to say that he had "Bluekemia" He is our hero for everything that he had to go through.
