Matthew Leon's Cancer Fund

Hello, this is the story of my son Matthew Leon, who is currently 16 years old. He has been battling Sarcoma of the Liver, a childhod cancer since the age of 6 years old. He has gone through 2 relaps already. The cancer came back after 7 years of remission. This will be he's 3rd relaps and this time doctors gave him less than a year to live. The cancer is growing and in rapid time. There are no more operations on the table for him to remove any more of the tumor they cant get to.  He was given oral chemo to take to slow down the aggresive cancer growing and in the mean time we are asking for funds to help Matthew travel to places he wanted to travel as an adult. Go to concerts to his favorite bands in different cities, visit relatives whom live out of state, explore the country and live out the rest of his days, months he has, being happy and not letting cancer take over the one life he is fighting for.  His father and I both agree that this would lift up the spirit in him and not let him waste away in a hospital or end up at home in bed nothing to do give up. Our son has been through so much that he didnt have a childhood.  He only wants to be normal, feel normal, and NOT let this cancer win! Matthew would like to start traveling as soon as he reaches his goal.  We are also asking funds to help out with the bills and travel we do to get to places. With out transportation it is hard to get around.  As time goes by so does Matthews health, we would greatly appriciate what you can donate to Matthews family. I as a mother had to quit my job to stay home and take care of Matthew.  We are in great need and May God bless you all who read Matthew's story.
