My Story

Matthew is a childhood cancer survivor who was diagnosed with a rare form of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2010.  He received a life saving bone marrow transplant (donated by his sister) in 2011 and has been cancer free since!   
 Not only is Matthew an Honored Kid, but he is also a participant this year shaving his head to help raise money to find a cure for childhood cancer.  He doesn't want any child to have to go through what he did. 
Thank you for helping to put an end to childhood cancer, because one child is too many to lose.
