Matthew has persevered through a long and difficult surgical history consisting of 23 operations with more to come in the future. In face, he is currently in the hospital for a staged spine fusion procedure. He has always tried to be brave and a trooper through it all. Matthew has also been a role model for his younger sister who may also need the same surgery in the future. It is for those reasons and more that he is our Hero!
