Send Matthew to Disneyland!

$5,156 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 84 people in 56 months

Matthew was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare bone and tissue cancer, when he was just three years old. Matthew is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation at Seattle Children's Hospital. Matthew has had such a tough year, but he never stops fighting, and most importantly, he never stops smiling! Matthew brings happiness to everyone around him, so we want to do something extra special for his sixth birthday by sending him to Disneyland! Please help us make sure that this is Matthew's best birthday yet!

Hello everyone! I'm so sorry that it has been so long since I have been in touch. As you all know, every single one of you helped to defy our greatest expectations by helping us shatter our goal of $5,000 to send Matthew to Disneyland. We set the goal with a general idea of what a trip for four to Disneyland would cost. Between the generosity of our friends, and strangers who would become friends, both on and offline, we were able to exceed our goal by so much, that we were able to take Matthew to Disneyworld instead! I cannot begin to put into words how special this trip was, not only for Matthew, but for everyone who loves him. Every dollar you gave helped to make Matt, Diana, Matthew's, and Eliana's trip special! I would like to send you all a special thank you from all of us. Please provide your mailing address to melaniewood16@gmail.com. And thank you again, from the bottom of our heart! We couldn't have done this without you!

Hello everyone! We are so thrilled with how far we've come toward meeting our goal of $5,000. We have received two large donations from amazing charities associated with Ewing's Sarcoma; One Million for Anna and SIDES : Sydney's Incredible Defeat of Ewing's Sarcoma, but the majority of donations have been from all of you, and your friends and family! So many of the messages we receive say that they stumbled upon Matthew's photo online, through a friends Facebook page or Twitter. Please continue to share the link! It's working! Thank you all for helping us give Matthew the birthday of his dream!
