i read this and nearly cried it is very upsetting, i can't imagine the pain matthew's family must be going through. It is better for him this way, as he is no longer suffering, i would have thought this would be the best way to look on it if you would like to still have a life with your daughter. My wishes are with the family and my prayers are alway's with matthew from now on. All my love forever NikkixXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxX

Hi Matthew and Anthony I am 38 years old and have AML - was diagnosed in 1996 and almost made the 5 year mark - relapsed end of 2001 and again at the end of last year. Matthew was an incredible boy - you can be proud of him - I cried when I went through his website.

I will always remember the first day that i met Matthew (through my best friend Melisa Assi, who died 2 days before Matthew) and i was inspired by the strenght that he had, regardless of the pain he was in. He was a very special boy, just like Melisa.

This is a great Website. It is very touching. It just made me think of all the little things I get mad at for example little pain. Now that I saw what this little angel had to go thru I feel ashamed of my self. I was a tuff battle and he was a brave soldier. This website really put me to think of all I should give thanks for.

Sorry for your loss, Matthew sounded like such a brave little boy,all the aches and pains that we suffer are nothing compared to what your little angel suffered, reading about Matthews short life has made me realise that I am so lucky to have my health and have my 15 month old healthy son, before I ever complain about any trivial thing I will think of Matthew and how brave he was and what love and fun he had in his short life. I am very grateful that you have kept this website, it makes you cry and it makes you think about how precious every life is. Thank you Matthew for touching my heart and life. May you forever be surrounded by angels.

My 2yr old daughter and I were searching Googel Images to find photos of the Wiggels and we cam across Matthew'Room. The pictutes of your brave little boy brought me to tears, I can't imagine the strength that you all must have to face these trails. I will pray for Matthew and your entire family. I just had to let you know that his big brown eyes deeply touched my heart.

I cam across your site while I was looking for some information about Leukimia. My good friend has found out he has leukimia and he just going through Chemo this week. After looking through your site, I ended up in tears. I am scared for my friend, he lives in Canberra, and as you can see I am in Darwin, and that is quite away away, I am visiting Canberra for xmas, and all my prayers are hoping I will see him again. Sorry to hear that Matthew passed away, he sure was a beautiful boy. GOD BLESS you.

its hard to know what to say in times like this.....i was touched to hear the story of your son...all i can say is think of the good times you all had together.....the reason i came across the story of your son was that in the last few weeks my bosses son was found to have leukaemia and is going thru a lot of stuff in hospital at the moment and not sure of what the out come for him is yet...they will know more in the next 4 or 5 weeks....since my boss needs someone to cover his shifts at the fish and chip shop i offered to cover his shifts at the shop free of charge so he and his wife can spend more time with there son......take care robert edwards

First I want you to know how sorry I am for your loss. My son Justin was diagnoised with AML, M7 in Sept 2002 (he was 2 yrs old). What amazed me about your story is that Matthew presented the same as Justin. Justin started with one hard lump and then it spread to both sides of his face. It seems like his face would never stop growing. Although it took 5 weeks after I was admitted into our local children's hospial for a diagnoiss. As it turned out Justin had a blood disorder (Myloid Displastic Sydrome)that gave him AML.They said the blood disorder is what made his face explode. When I look at Matthew's photo's I see alot of my son's journey. Although, our treatment only lasted 14 months, I am very lucky that Justin is now 4 and has been in remission for over a year. My thoughts and prayors are with your family and Matthew. I think this web site is a beautiful tribute to Matthew. I hope to one day be able to sit down and write our journey as well. All the best in the future.

No one lives forever. But Matthew was a great kid. He was made great by the people who gave so much to him, his parents. Everthing that Matthew is was given to him by his parents, the DNA that they carry, and the love that they give. Without love, no child grows to be worthy of it.

Having two children i cant even imagine what you and your family have gone through. As i sit here with tears rolling down my cheek, may the spirit of your beautiful little boy always be with you

I am so sorry for the massive loss in your family. To keep this site was a wonderful idea and you must be very proud of your little guys valiant struggle. Most parents don't realize how lucky we are to have healthy children and sometimes take little things for granted. My prayers are with you and your family. Also I'm so shocked by the insensitivity of some of the post people have left here. It's amazing about the lack of consideration found at times.
