12-year-old Matthew is an incredibly special young boy who was born with cerebral palsy with spastic quadriplegia. This very serious form of C.P. is characterized by an acute disruption of motor skills with symptoms that include spasticity and seizures. To date, Matthew has had to have numerous surgeries and will likely need even more in the future. Because of his difficulty with mobility, Matthew must use a walker and a wheelchair to get around.
A huge fan of Chuck Norris, Matthew was completely awestruck when he got to meet his favorite action hero in person!
