Hello again! I'm back lol! First, I want to tell everyone, Thanks to a Great Guy from "oldihc" Mike in Canada contacted a Co called "Shelterlogic" and asked them if they would help Matthew cover his truck, allowing him to stay outside with his truck more often, and Shelterlogic sent MAtthew a portable garage FREE of charge! The Little Old Truck of Mircales oficially has a home of it's own now! Thank you again Mike! And Thank you Shelterlogic! You granted yet, another wish for our Son and his Dad! I will post pics asap for everyone to see. Also, IH themselves are putting MAtthews Truck and story in their magazine they send to dealers, and IH members club people! Isnt that incredible? International has been so wonderful to us. What a First Class Company with GIANT hearts! I'm so proud we have an International! And last...We got to meet Matt Campisi at a truck & tractor show but not Stacy or Ryan yet. Please stop over one day Stacy! I'd love to meet you and Ryan too! Matt was VERY

Hello Everyone! Once again, I apologize for taking so long to updtate you. I've had some personal things here that needed personal attention. First though, I want to Thank John Hill, also John and Annette Moore, and Mr Gregg Becker! You just cannot imagine how much your amazing donations will help The Fellas! They have the radiator and gas tank out for repair, and the cost ended up higher than first expected. But now, thanks to all of you...The repairs will be taken care of. I wish so bad, I could show the excitement on their faces each time I bring them such wonderful news. It's as if you give them new life! Over, and Over again! Thank you again, a billion times over! I have a few other updates for everyone but, I will sign off and back on, to start another post so I don't run out of space like I usually do, leaving everyone lost, with only half of what I said showing on the board lol. God Bless brb lol Sue

Hello Everyone, I don't have a whole lot of update for you today, sorry about that. The weather has been very unpredictable except for a few nice days here and there. Also, they are waiting for a few parts Mark ordered. I'm going to borrow a log splitter from our friend so Mr Matthew and his Mom (eeks) can chop up the wood pile here, and sell it. He can use those monies towards his truck. But, only If "Dad" allows us to try it lol. Ok, that's all for now. BTW...the <gasp> GMC sprint car in the pic, is my "dream" car. Even us Moms can like cars and trucks too! lol God Bless Everyone, With Love, Sue (Mom)

Sorry, I forgot to tell everyone how much response Mark and Matthew are still getting from the Newspaper article. To this day, when we go into town...someone will stop them and ask about the truck. I think they really feel like movie stars now lol. Also, a couple of Marks relatives, Men whom have restored trucks in their day...have now offered to help out with the physical work on the truck if needed. It was nice to see my husband back in touch with those guys, and it really made him feel good seeing them again. Plus, a wonderful man "Mike" from Canada has been emailing, with many helpful ideas, and trying to find parts for Us. Finally, the last two pics you see, are Matts construction site in my living room lol. Oh well, who really needs to "live" in a living room any way lol. Thank You all once again, sue

Hello Everyone, The prokect has slowed down a bit now. They are waiting to hear from the radiator man. But I also have GREAT news! International Trucks contacted a nice lady Cyndi at Binder Books for Matt, and they took the time to research and print all the literature they could find for Matt's truck, and sent it to them. And they did it FREE of charge! Isn't that wonderful? Talk about real Class! Thank You Binder Books, IH, and especially Cyndi! For all her hard work putting it togather and sending. The Fellas were blown away when they opened it. My husband was in utter dissbelief! Also, to Stacy Matt & Ryan, I sent you an email. If you returned one, I didn't recieve it. Please call me if you wish, anytime you like. Thank you John, Susan, and Everyone! We sure love yall! sue

Hello John, Susan, and all you incredible friends. I'm here to give a little update for everyone. As I'm sure you know, the weather has been unforgivable these past 2 weeks. Matthew cant go outside in this weather but, Dads been trying to get things done. They took the radiator down to a shop today and we are waiting to see how much it will cost to fix it. They hope to get the fixed water pump back in tomorrow. And they bought new gasket sets this week. We are waiting for the truck manual pages Binder Books so kindly donated to the boys. She said the only book they had was over 6000 pages covering many years, otherwise she would have just given the whole book. The Fella's are like movie stars in town now, since they were in the newspaper last week lol. Mr Matthew LOVES attention too!lol so, although the weather has ruined Matts chance to work on his truck but...the newspaper covering his story, has made up for it, and he's one VERY happy kid! The Fella's both asked me to say thank

Hello everyone, Guess what? Matthews Truck was on the front page of our Newspaper this week. There's a picture of the awesome poster Susan made for him. And a pic of Matt and Dad working on the truck. I'll try to get the pictures for all to see. Mr Matt had his little cell phone on speed dial when that newspaper came out. Wait until Dad sees THAT phone bill! lol. I see there are more donations here. Godh Hiya, and thank you Bob! I'll have Mark call you ok? And Matt, Stacy, and Ryan? Thank you so much! I'd love to hear about your plans. email me anytime ok? I'd sure love to chat with another "mom" And, Mr Andy? Thank you very much too! And lastly, Mr Juan?

Hello everyone, Sorry I took this long to update everyone. First, I want to thank you for your kind donation Marcel. The Fella's painted about ten things out of the motor yesterday. Mr Matt had his goggles on, and scraped bunches of rusty spots, as Dad painted. Also, i busted them both, as they were using the air gun on my little 3lb dog! I don't know who's worse, the guys or the dog...cause both seem to be having fun lol. Just hearing laughter around our home again, is priceless to me.

Here's Mr Matthew, all decked out in his brand new IH shirt and matching hat! I promised him I would get this picture posted for everyone to see him wearing those things. I'm not sure if he understands why his truck is missing it's emblems though. He's questioned me about it, but no fears...Mom will explain it at least 800 more times, and then he will be fine lol. He also asked me to say Hi to all of you again, and Thanks from him again. I will do my best to get a folder in the members page for everyone to see all the pics better ASAP. Thank you all for your patience God Bless you sue(mom)

Hello again everyone from Sue (Mom) I apologize for not getting a new pic for everyone yet, but I promise to I will do every thing I can to take some for you all tomorrow and send them to John, or any of you whom would like me to send them too, please send me an email request to SSSprt@aol.com and I will be a pleasure and honor to send to each one personally. We had a small setback with Matt's health again, but he's up and running. I cannot allow him outside in this extreme heat we are having here in NJ, so he won't be in the newest pictures. Matthew has a habit of melting faster than a snowman in extreme heat, and I could never handle getting him up and into the house alone if he goes down as I know he would. But...I hope you all will be pretty surprised to see how far He and his Dad have gotten with such little time they get. The carberater is out being rebuilt, along with other things (sorry im not real sure exactly what others) but I will try and set my husband down long enough

ANYTHING like this would happen for our Son. One of our greatest dreams, no matter what day or night, something were to go bad, and we lost our Matt? We want him to be happy to his very last day. We can tell you this is the happiest Matthew has ever been in his life! PLUS...We want everyone to know, Matthew went into NYC, for his special 6 month Doctor checkup...And he got one of the best reports he's ever had!! His Doctor was surprised to see how well he was doing, even his BP that's usually scary at times, was PERFECT. Mr Matthew showed her a picture of his (here we go again lol) "1960 R200 International Dump Truck" AND his Poster with his name, Susan so graciously made for him. Matt has a picture of that truck laminated, he carries with him everywhere. So, again...how could we possibly Thank All of you for so much? And to Mr Jack Flash? with that amazing donation? God Bless you Sir. Those monies will paint this truck for our Son. All of the other monies have done so many thin
