Iam a GP.I am really touched by this effort.You re not alone, you should know that by now.Keep living through this beuatiful smile...
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*
Sweet dreams litle man and God Bless you Matthew.....
MY SON WAS DIAGNOSED WITH MYLOID LUKEMIA HE IS 11 AND HALF MONTHS OLD HAS HAS GONE THROUGH HIS 1st LOAD OF TREATMENT AND IS DOING GREAT. YOU ARE NOT ALONE GOOD LUCK.
Matthews Web Site truly touched me, what an amazing young man.
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...
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.
Thank you Matthew. You are so special and give my love to your amazing family.
Hi Matthew, I was thinking of you this week. Samir.
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.
he is the cutest little boy! god bless yall for all the pain you all have gone through but i assure u not to worry cause i know that your little matthew is in heaven and jesus is taking care of him!
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. ***
Yes he was a beutiful boy, Don't ever forget him.
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'm terribly sorry for your loss. I'd just like to say that I admire your strength and courage in creating this websit. It gives people like me the chance to understand. Thank-you for the insite and best wishes in the future. God Bless! (Don't worry he's looking after your little boy)
This website is a great idea. It gives people like me the chance to understand. Thank-you for the insite.
I think this is a great website. I am doing a research project on Leukemia and your site was a great source of information. It also helped me understand the disease. Best wishes.
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.
i came to this site for research, but i found a totally moving story. i feel very sorry for all thoes kids who have gone through, and what are going through what matthew went through.
I am a teacher who is shaving for a cure and I have been using yur website to
help let my grade know what we are raising funds for. We live in a small town
and have raised $1557:80 in 10 days and have learned so much about real life
leukaemia from Matthew and his family. Thank you very much.
I think this site is amazing
I hope you get better really soon!!
I admire your bravery and your family are in our prayers.My son is five and
was diagnosed 1/02/99 with ALL. Finishes Chemo 26/03/02 so far so good.
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
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
To Matthews family our heart goes out to you, we could never imagine the pain
you have all experienced.We have been lucky never to have experienced anything
like that.Our sympathy and love are with you all.
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.
Tomorrow I go to donate platelets for the first time. I was looking for a
drawing of a platelet, and found Matthew's site. A year and more has past. I
wish you well and am glad to know what I am doing counts.
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.
Was doing a literature search on Iloprost. I went ahead and read Matthew's
diary and have great respect for his and his family's struggles.
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
