On July 13, 2000 our 4-yo son was diagnosed with a rare childhood liver-cancer: Hepatoblastoma but only after he had first been seen by 5 different pediatricians in 6 months and diagnosed w/everything from 'viral' to being 'anemic'. During the next 2 years we would travel to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore MD for a 12-hour liver-resection & 6-week recovery; back home for chemotherapy & several surgeries; to Emory for radiation; and home for more surgery and chemotherapy. On August 25, 2002, Matthew passed away at 6 years old.
On March 21st, 2015 Matthew Bryan would have been 19 years old and a & freshman in college! And this year, in memory of Matthew [and my best-friend Kim] I shave my head to memorialize their lives, that were gone too soon
