My husband Ron and I are members of Lions International. Ron is the fund raising chairman for Lions Cord Blood Foundation and he is also on the fundraising committee at the Bone Marrow Donor Institute Cord Blood Bank in Melbourne. We are both very interested in this programme and are happy to know that so far everything seems to be going OK after your transplant. We wish you and your family a Bright and Blessed Christmas and a Successful and Healthy New Millennium. Regards from Sue and Ron Hird.
Dear Matthew, Wishing you and your family a very happy Christmas and a great year 2000!
Love from Lina, Ian and Michael
I really enjoyed looking through your website and reading about your experiences. You are a brave little boy with lots of courage and determination. You will be in my prayers and I hope you make a full recovery.
You certainly are a strong and courageous
little boy. You are an inspiration to
people of all ages who have to undergo
countless hours of treatments and tests.
I'd like to wish you and your entire family
a wonderful holiday season. Keep smiling,
little guy. You're in my heart.
Hi there Matthew,nice to see you and dad!Hope all is well,we are all having fun in the old big red car!Get well soon!Anthony Wiggle
Hey Spunky Monkey, I haven't seen you in ages. I heard that you came to see me the other day but just couldn't wait that long. Anyway I'll be seeing both you and Kayla on Sunday okilydokily. Lots of love and kisses and cuddles...JOxxxxxxxxxx
Hi Matthew, We are akk really pleased with your great results. This should be a wonderful Christmas! We'll all be thinking of you when we're in Denver. Hugs for you and Kayla and mum and dad!
Dear Matthew, My mum has the same disease as you so we have some understanding of what you and your family are going through. We also get very excited about white cell counts and bone marrow results! I hope you and your family have a fantastic Xmas!
I haven't seen you for so long, which only means good news. Hang in there and keep those counts up. Love you Matthew.
Thankyou for your website Matthew! I have the same birthday as you but a year later(6/7/97), and I like all of your favourite things!! And guess what? my Mummy has the same birthday as your Mummy!! We loved looking through your photos, and are glad your tube is out. We will be thinking of you, and hoping you have a great Christmas.
Great to see you again and to hear that you've got your NG tube out!! Keep on Wigglin'!!!!
Lots of Love,
We loved your pictures with the Fame cast. Did you enjoy the show?
It must be quite hot if Kayla and Dad swam. Hope those bugs get cleared up soon so you can go into the pool too.We had a big Christmas party for kids at work on Sun 750 people, to also celebrate 25yrs of being incorporated. I ran an obstacle course.
Where is Christmas this year. Let me know when that is decided. Love to Kayla , Mum and dad.
There used to be an expression in One Commando that went: "When you think you are exhausted (expletive deleted), you are only exhausted for the first time". Hang in there Matthew!
Hey from your Wilson Cousins In Melbourne!!!
Ben, Grace, Sam, and Miriam.
I was searching the net for bear in the big blue house gifts for my son. My search engine brought me here. Good Luck with everything. Matthew is such a cutie!!!
Kayla - we hope your ears are alright and this makes them better.
We just celebrated American Thanksgiving - this year we all have alot to be thankful for.
All our best,
J & K
Hello Matthew and Kayla,
Hope the ears are feeling a little better Kayla. My big girl, had her tonsils out this year, it hurt quite a bit but she got better quickly, by eating lots of icecream,
and now her throat never ever gets sore! I have a boy who is almost
exactly the same age as you Matthew, his 3rd birthday was on the 5th August
1999. He loves Playschool, diggers, dump trucks, and rubbish trucks, pirates and cowboys.
He likes to play with tools and Duplo, and loves Woody the cowboy, and Buzz lightyear from the Toy story movie.
Matthew, I think you look like a really special little boy, and you have a beautiful smile! Just like your pretty sister's. I'm really glad that I found your photo album, I will have a look every day, to see if your mummy and Daddy have taken any more of these great photos!
Keep smiling Matthew, hope you are feeling better soon Kayla
Love Rachel :-)
WHAH WHO! MATTHEW,
We are so excited about where the new cells are coming from

Hi Mathew! You are the bravest little man I have ever come across. In all of the years I have been in the Army I have never seen anyone as strong or brave. Your webpage brought many smiles to my face. I hope it does the same for you. Please keep the pictures coming as I'll be coming back often to see what you have been up to. You will be in my thoughts and prayers every day. Be well, but even more important.. be HAPPY!
Kevin Pascal & family
My little sister (now 27!) had a big bird that she slept with every night too! In fact, I think she still does. :)
You are a very strong, smart and brave young man. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Ridley (my daughter..almost 1 year) loves Bear too.
Keep smiling Matthew!!
Hi Matthew!! I am Seth's mom:) Seth is almost one year old and he too LOVES bear off Bear in the Big Blue House - makes him and me laugh too!! My husband and I donate blood and are on the marrow donor list - I wish we could do more to help you but it sounds like you are quite the fighter!! Stay strong and you are in our thoughts and prayers!
Lori and Seth:)
You are a brave little man, hope
everything works out for you and Im

you will beat it.Goodluck and take care!
My name is Brittany and I have just

for hi-5 pictures when we came across
your website! Its a great page!
We send you all our love Matthew!!!
Hi Matthew, Our daughter Kimberley had cancer of the liver and went through some of the same things as you. She is now 8 and a beautiful healthy girl. We were sure that a happy, positive family helped to make her better. I am sure it is doing the same for you. Keep smiling. Its the best medicine.
This is a wonderful way for you to keep in touch with the whole world. It's a lovely website. Your photos are terrific. I hope all your dreams come true - you are a very brave boy. Keep smiling!
Hope you are feeling better soon. I really enjoyed reading your daily reports and looking at your lovely photographs.

All the best for the future,
Hi Matthew,Maria Yoo one of your nurses told me all about you and how lovely you are so i thought i would call in to say hello and wish you Good Luck Matthew
Hi Matthew, I was just passing through again to see how you are and I'm so pleased you are home and looking like having so much fun. That's a great Jack O' Lantern you had there. Hope you had lots of treats and no tricks! Lots of love to you, big hug.XXX
Hi Matthew, Kayla, Sue and Anthony,
it is great to be able to keep up to date with how things are going via your fantastic web site.
Glad to see you have been doing some fun things Matthew! Thinking of you all.
Okay Matthew - you need to ask your Mummy something for me - is she still afraid of trick or treating?
When we were a little older than you and Kayla, we dressed up and went trick or treating at our Grandma's house. Your Mum was not too happy but her cool cousins from Canada
introduced Halloween to your Mum and aunt Robbie.
This is too great! Halloween is now in Australia and my cousin is participating - heehee - i am enjoying this one.
(all in good fun of course!)
J & K

It's good news that you've been able to spend so much time at home. Guess what? I donated blood today for the first time, and signed up as a bone marrow donor. And I finally did this after being inspired by your homepage and story. So really, you helped somebody today.
Have fun with Big Bird and Kayla and your play house,
Finally got to go home at long last.
Hope you had a great nights sleep in you own bed. I bet you enjoyed those chicken nuggets before you left the hospital too.

I have just finished reading your web page including your diary. I came across this when I was researching Leukaemia for a project I am doing at university. I am a mature age (48) 3rd year nursing student. I am also an active member of the Lion's club and as such take an active interest in the Cord Blood Bank here in Melbourne. Lion's have taken Cord Blood on as a project and are endeavouring to raise some much needed funds for this oh so worthy cause. I wish you all the very best and sincerely hope and pray that this transplant works and that this story becomes one of triumph. Keep up the good work on the diary as I am sure it is and will be a source of inspiration to so many others. God Bless you all.
Good luck for your future and I hope all goes well. Wishing for you. Mel
Hi Matthew-I am the student that kept coming to bother your Mum and Dad! so you probably don't remember me. I just wanted you all to know that I am thinking of you and Matthew, I hope you are feeling better soon. You are an incredible family. All the best, Krishna.

Your dad knows my brother Mark Shannon who works for Hughes in California. Mark told me about your website. I really enjoyed reading and looking through your life story.
Our (Mark and I) dad just had a stroke and is in the hospital. Mark is now thinking about creating a website to follow his recovery process.
I am leaving today from Arizonia to fly to Adelaide (through Sydney). I will be in Australia for two weeks. This will be my second trip - both for work. I work for Caterpillar and will be visiting with the Australian Department of Defense (ADF). Your dad may of heard about the DIDS (Defense Integrated Distribution System) request by the ADF.
I need to go now. Take care.
This is a very interseting, but sad site. I wish you and your family all the luck and best wishes for the future. I will think of you.
We had everyone at home in the big city this weekend!
Jenn is still here and didn't bring us any TImTams! Can you believe it!
We hope you are all well. Glad that you are bouncing around- are you like Tigger?
Please thank Kayla for the picture and note from all of you.
See you soon (maybe for your birthday!)
I found your website by accident. I read through almost the whole thing and was touched by your story.....throughout your entire ordeal, your family and you have smiles on your face. What a great attitude. I now want to keep up with your progress and will visit your website again and again. I will pray for your health and also for you family.
Thank you for the yummy Tim Tams and Violet Crumbles! We are so excited to have received them! WE hope you have a good weekend. All our best.
We will eat a few for you and I guess we should have a couple each for the rest of your family too - what a chore!!!
Hang in there mate - I've got 4 children who each hope you do well.
I'm a friend of Diddy and Bill and visit your site from time to time to see how you are progressing. I send you best wishes and hope that you soon are feeling much better.
Greetings for Mother's Day to Susan, Anthony,
Kayla and Matthew. It's good to read the news. We hope for continued progress.

Hi Mathew. I am a good friend of your Dad from work. I have been following your progress. You are a brave little man. I hope you get better soon.
Your story really touched me. I wish you the best of luck in the future!
I've been following your web page for some time now, and it's wonderful to know that you are over the worst of your treatment.
You have been a very brave little man and everyone is proud of you.
I hope that you feel better with every passing day - get Dad to bring you to work with him sometime in the future.
Very interesting reading and very familiar. My daughter was diagnosed with AML on the 28th of Nov 1997. She underwent very similar treatment. She has since had her bone marrow(may 98) and has come through very well. Thank God. She is now 2 and a half years old and is looking very healthy. Today we went to the Royal Brisbane Hospital for her regular check up. We are going back every two months at this stage. Her doctor is extremely pleased with her progress and so are we.
There is light at the end of a very dark tunnel even though it doesn't seem like it some times.
HI MATTHEW, I LIKE YOUR COOL HAIR STYLE-YOUR PHOTOS ARE GREAT. I WORK WITH YOUR DADDY AT OPTUS AND HE TELLS ME WHAT A LUCKY DAD HE IS TO HAVE MATTHEW AND KAYLA.

Hi! Matthew, you don't know me, but I hear a lot about you from your dad.
