My Story

On August 2nd 2015 after a fun family outing at a public swimming pool, our lives were turned upside down after rushing our 12 year old son Matthew to the hospital because of a lump the size of a baseball that appeared suddenly on the side of his neck. A few hours later we were told he has Leukemia. Roughly 30 mins after the shock of it all, Matthew smiled and informed everyone in the room that 'It's Only Cancer, I've Got This Beat". (And this was with him fully knowing what Cancer is because both his grandfather's passed away from Cancer, one Lung Cancer, the other Leukemia). And with that the FIGHT BEGAN. Matthew is ferociously and bravely taking the Fight To Cancer. We Thank EVERYONE for your Prayers & Support. Please join the fight with us.
