Hello. I was just doing a search on Wiggles images for my 2 yr old daughter when I stumbled across Matthew's Favourite Things page. I ended up going through the whole site and crying, here in my office. What you have here is a beautiful thing, a tribute for a child that will never be forgotten. Matthew was a beautiful boy and I thank you for touching my life this way. My best wishes to all of you.

A very moving recollection of Matthew's treatment. I have and 2 1/2 year old diagnosed in March this year with Leukaemia so understand everything that he went through. It is wonderful that you have kept the memory of Matthew going in this web page. He was a special boy who is no longer suffering from this terrible disease. Love and best wishes to his family.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss but it seems that GOD needed another little angel with him that had the smile that could give us some sunshine down here all 0ver the world. I am 45 and i was dx with ALL on Oct. 15, 1998 my body could not tolerate chemo so i just went through 1 1/2 yrs of it and they refuse to do a BMT even though I have a perfect match in my big brother. Those who are facing it new pray alot and keep a positive attitude and if GOD decides to take you let yourself be prepared and let everyone down here know its ok to cry for awhile.

I hope everything will going well for you and the rest of your family. I know what it is like for something like that to happen. My father has kidney faleure. He had that for 6 years and last year he had a kidney traneplant. He was up in Aukland for 3 months I missed him heaps but I'm lucky he's still alive.

It is midnight and I was ready to go to sleep until your web page caught my eye. I am 21 and am working at a pharmacy. I am enrolled in school eventually going to med school to work with aids and cancer. I would have loved to meet your son. He sounds like a wonderful child, not to mention the extreamly strong, and loving family he had to help him fight for 1 more day. I just want to let you know what you have done with this web page is extreamly heart warming, compelling, by far the most awsome page I have ever come across. Tomorrow when I go to work I am going to pull this up on the computer so everyone has a chance to experience what I have. I will also reccomend this to a mother to look at, whom has a 3 year old daughter experiencing the same. I hope you both are doing as good as possible. I am sure you hear this all the time, but if there is ever anything that I can do just e-mail me. Love Stephanie

Matthew looks like he was a happy little boy despite the pain and illness he must have endured, we lost 3 little girls, although not to the same illness, my sympathy goes out to you, only those who lose their little treasures truly know what it is like to lose a child.

Mathew - I was looking for information on dairy facts and came accross your website. It sounds like you have had a challenging life so far. I pray god will carry you through this most difficult time. I don't know if you know Jesus as your personal savior. If you don't, you can. He is the comforter of all our souls no matter what type of struggle we are going through. I will pray tonight that he will comfort you. You seem like a strong boy even with all the pain and suffering you must face on a daily basis. I am a Vice President of a Bank in Wisconsin.

Hi Matthew and family, I have viewed your site on several occasions and I am very greatful that you have such a page as I am currently doing research on Leukaemia and it's effects on children. I am currently doing my fourth year at Melbourne University, completeing a bachelor of early childhood studies. for one of our subjects we are required to create a "person doll" which in theory would be used with a group of children to encourage awareness of Leukamia and the effect it has on a child's life. My Lecturer, has encouraged me to approach you and your family to base the persona of my doll around your life. Meaning I would name the doll Matthew and would base stories of the doll around experiences you have had. In order for me to do this I require legal authority from your parents. I would really only need to use your name, and base the dolls life and family members on yours. I would really appreciate it if your parents could E-mail me on the above address so that we could discuss how they feel about this. The persona doll is part of a major assessment for the subject Inclusive Curriculum. Thank you for your time and I hope everthing is going well for you and your family. Yours Sincerely Rachel.

He is doing fine now except for some graft versus host appear on his skin. The reason why I came on this side as I was searching in the internet for AML as my niece who is just 15 months old has been just diagnoses with AML last 2 weeks. She is at the Star ship Hospital now in NZ . She is on her 4th day of Chemotherapy today. When I look at Matthew Picture my niece is just like Matthew. I hope all goes well . REgards, elisiva

The site above is still as my brother left it - just one page - but there's a draft which I'll upload soon ... now that I have the strength to do it - I truly admire your effort. Over time this draft has changed in concept and will deal with grief and personal experience rather than his original concept. My brother, Steven, died of Graft Versus Host Disease after a Matched Unrelated Donor (MUD) Bone Marrow Transplant, meant to beat his AML, failed. To all of you, my heart goes out to you, but most especially to Kayla ... from one big sister who has lost her little brother ... to another. Hugs.

Hi Matthew, i'm actually doing an English story on the topic "winning and loosing", i came tro this site under "search" and once i had a look, i read it all!! this will help me for info on the story, i'm doing it on a girl who's 15 and finds sh'e going through the traurmour of leukemia. She misses out on her tennis finals and school, especially spending time with her younger sister and family. i won't go any further, but this is a true story like yours, Matthew, and i admire and am much inspired by this friend of mine who is the nicest possible person i and ne1 could ever meet!Quite a few of my family members have died of cancer and they were all the nicest ones! i dont know why all these things happen to the best loving and caring ppl in the world!, I'm sure u r a VERY unique and special person as i have read and also ben inspired by u to make my life the full! Best of luck always!!

The main focus of it is about some new software called 'think' which is aiming to use people's computers to find the potential ability of chemical compounds to interact with proteins linked to leukamia.

This is a poignant, delightful site, that helps others understand the plight of children with leukaemia. Your son was a beautiful young boy and you must miss him terribly. This is a lovely tribute to who he was and the grace he possessed even in the face of obvious suffering. My thoughts are with you at this tragic time.

I have a good friend at school who has leukemia and it has upset me very much. Because of this my science teacher gave me leukemia as an assignment. I am asking everyone I meet to donate blood as my friend is waiting to find a compatible bone-marrow donor. My friends and I are trying to help our leukemic friend as much as we can. We are teenagers and therefore older than you but it feels the same no matter what our ages might. More power to you, Mathew.

I am currently doing my year ten certificate at TAFE and was given an assignment on cancer and various other life threating diseases. My teacher handed out some information for us to read through to get a good idea on the assignment. Your extremly touching story was one of them.I have to say that i was very touched and dont think i would have the strangth to go through what you went through It was a very upsetting moment for me so i cant imagine what your family and friends were going through (you all sound very brave) Love Mel xxxx

I lost my good friend Rod to leukemia almost 2 years ago and I feel your pain. It's a horrible disease that I hope one day will be cured. My prayers are with you! Who knows, maybe they are hanging out together up above watching over us! ;) God Bless.

This website has inspired me. I stumbled uopn it while searching for a health realetd topic to give a speech on. But after looking through it, i realised that this is not just a topic to give a speech on, and for get about. People are dealing with this everyday, with no dtermined cure. I am a pre-medical student from texas, and i wish matthew all the luck in the world.

What a remarkable brave boy. It was sad to read of his passing and like a friend who has also written in your guestbook (Michelle) our links to this page did not allow us to read about his sad death. We wish Matthew's family the best of luck and hope that others will find hope in story.

Hi, My name is Cheree and I am 16 years old. I was recently looking for research on luekeamia on the net, for an assignment. This was when i happened to come across Matthew's site. I would just like to tell you that it touched my heart like nothing else. He was a very brave young boy to hold on with a positive attitude for as long as he did. I know the words I say you would have already heard many times before, I would just like for you to know that even though I don't know you, my prayers are with your family. Matthew was so adorable, his pictures and diary bought tears to my eyes. I know that he would have had the best life ever, it is just a shame that it was cut so short. The 16th of October, 2000 was a sad day for the world when such a beautiful person was taken away. He is at peace now and i bet waiting up in heaven with his big bird toys for his loving family. I wish the best to you all and for you to know that there are people out here thinking of you always. Take care, "Through the mists and cloudy heights, Amongst the winds and trees, Across great oceans sings the breeze, Echoes of the deeper song, Listen quietly....He is there" Sincerly yours, Cheree

While searching the internet for the wiggles for my neice, I came across your website. I sang out to my mum (Jenny) and we sat here and viewed your whole site. Our hearts goes out to you, and we take our hats off to your parents. You just don't realise how lucky you really are sometimes. Even in your situation, there is always somebody worse off than you. You are one special little boy Matthew. Your web site has made me think that we should never give up hope and enjoy every moment we spend with the ones we love and who love us. Thank you for opening my eyes to the way that we look at life. I hope that all goes well for you and your family.

Just stumbled across your story. Your family truly has endured a long journey.We too have lost our youngest son Jamie (3-3-72-2-1-98) to AML after a 2 year battle and a BMT. His death was directly attributed to the radiation conditioning treatment prior to transplant. I don't know the exact figures, but I'll bet that 99% of deaths after transplant, are a result of the treatment!! Jamie was in complete remission prior to transplant, with no leukemic cells present. If he had made the decision not to proceed with transplant, who knows, he might be here today, we'll never know.People should not blindly believe everything they are told about the success of transplants. Think seriously, and ask for statistics to be made available, ie: how many people are still alive after transplant, but you must state after AML because it's a different kettle of fish to other types of leukemia.

I am sorry to read of the death of Matthew . My son Matthew started with Leukaemia when he was 2 1/2 years old he was treated for 3 years at Alder hey hospital in Liverpool England. He is now 27 and doing very well. He was very lucky and very brave to come through, many of his age did not.
