Hello, Found your website through the Cure our Kids site who were promoting the support of the website creator who then showcased some of the website they have worked on including yours. I love the fact that I could stop and read about his life and see that smile. He is beautiful. He shines. Thank you for making this site. Thank you for filling it with so much love. Now Matthew will live in my mind, and heart and my girls will know of him tonight when I go home. I hope you are well in heart and mind. My love I send even though a stranger... *hugs* Josie

No words can ever explain the emotions I feel.. I lost my mom to Leukaemia 3 years ago. Everytime when I see someone who is balding from the after-effects of chemo (like on the show with Robbin Williams, Patch Adams, tears well up in my eyes instantaneously. Maybe it's because that was how I remembered my mom before she left (which is nothing bad, cos I used to call her Popeye and that made her laugh..), and I miss her terribly, and maybe because for some reason, there is a kind of radiance that you see on their faces, like it did on Matthew's... :-) May God bless him and your family... Kind regards, Azreena.

I am touched deeply by Matthew's story and it "hits very close to home". My 3 year old son has just completed his treatment for AML at the Children's Hospital Westmead and is now 29 days post (sibling) transplant. Fortunately the transplant was complication free and we are fairly optimistic about the future, but only time will tell. I saw so many familar faces and scenes in the photos.

I was very touched by this. It is sad to imagine what these sort of children go through from day to day.

Your website is a wonderful, though heartwrenching, tribute to a little person with a big smile. Matthew's stories and photos bring to light the realities of life, and reminded me just how precious each day is. My sympathy is with you for the loss of your brave young boy, whose courage and strength was remarkable. Thank you for sharing Matthew's story.

I stumbled upon Matthew's website while searching for things that happened on the dates that my two friends' baby girls have been born (29/05/02 and 04/06/02) and Matthew looks so much like my nephew, Banx, in some of the photos it was uncanny. I hope that they will never have to endure what Matthew had to and hope that they carry the strength and courage that you and your little boy obviously had to make it as far as he did. I guess that you will have made many special friends during Matthew's life that will be able to understand what you have gone through. I hope that you are not feeling too sad and hope that these thoughts help in some way.

Hey. i love this website!!! I had Leukaemia as a kid and i lost my best friend(who i met in the hospital)to it. Im so Sorry to hear that you lost your son. I know it must be hard.I am in Australia now on Holidays and only just got out of the childrens hospital, Hospitals here are soooo different(im from America) Well gotta go so Bye God Bless

I am so sorry to read about your dear son. My father has also just been diagnosed with AML but we have decided not to go down the intensive route but a more gentle path, without heavy chemotherapy or BMT, although both were offered. Reading your account of Matthew's treatment have been helpful. THank you.

I stumbled onto this website when researching leukemia. I stopped a moment and thought when i read this touching story.I have finally realized how leukemia effects people and their families. your story has taught me more than just what this disease is but what it causes. Pain and heartbreak towards others. I might not have known Matthew or his family personally but from the way it sounds, he was a wonderful person and made many other people feel good inside. God bless you and your family. And remember, you know that he never really left you. ***

Thank you for sharing Matthew with us. My friend is today keeping a vigil beside her daugthers bedside. Pippi has had the same progress as Matthew and I hope her mum can come through it all. As you say it is more than one should have to put up with in a lifetime.

I stumbled onto this site, while doing some research for an assignment. I truly believe your son is one of god's little angels. He must have been needed back in Heaven. God Bless your family and Matthew.

Matthew, I think of you often. You have a little brother, who doesn't look a bit like you, but cute enough. Great aunt Kathy shared little Jared's picture. You are missed.

What a beautiful and courageous story. My mother in law has recently passed away from cancer and it is not an easy time. I admire your families strength and love during this difficult time. Matthew was such a gorgeous and happy little boy, which is credit to his loving and caring family. Your story touched me so deeply that it was very hard not to cry. Matthews winning smile has touched my heart and I know that he is in a very special place. God bless you all. Kerry XXXXXXOOOOOOOO

My mom died 4 years ago on October 26,2001. I am 16 years old and without my mom. I know life without your son has to be tough because my life without my mom is. It helps just knowing that she is in heaven and I will see her again. God Bless You

My friend's son has just been diagnosed with AML. He is 11 months old and now thanks to you and your web page I know a lot more of what he has to expect over the next few months. You are a very brave boy and I hope Jevan is too.

What a beautiful, but sad story. This little guy was very brave, and I am so sorry he had to go through all of this. Life sure is unfair some times. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have suffered through the same... Thanks so much for sharing this site with others. God Bless You All.

Dear Matthew, I am a Paediatrician from the UK. I came across your website as my little girl who is 3 has just been diagnosed with primary pulmonary hypertension, which is similar but not the same as with you. I always feel very humbled listening to stories like yours. Your courage is remarkable and a lesson to all. Your life is very precious, keep going. Good luck. Matt
