Story

Matthew
Matthew is 4 years old. Matthew is being raised by us his grandparents. On January 10,2015 I noticed a big knot on Matthews lower jaw and under his ear. I took him to the Emergency room and was told I needed to follow up with his doctor within the next 3 days to have some blood work done. Matthew had been very sickly for about 2 months getting fevers and then going away. So on January 11,2015 I had a gut feeling telling me that he had cancer. I took him to PU Children's Hospital emergency room they did blood work and found that something was wrong. He was admitted and we were told he has Luekemia. January 12 a bone marrow biopsy was done and it was determined it was ALL High Risk.
