Mattheu's Fight Against Cancer

Hello there and Thank You for visiting Mattheu's fundraising page.  I hope that you will consider a donation to the Thomas family for Mattheu's immediate and ongoing medical needs.
During the first week of December, Mattheu was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma.  This is a form of bone cancer that affects the long bones in the body.  Mattheu's tumor was found in his right leg and affects him from hip to foot.  This has left him unable to walk and needing a wheelchair to go anywhere.  Currently, the Thomas home is not wheelchair accessible.  With your help we hope to change that very soon.  There are already plans in place to install a ramp or sidewalk from the driveway to the door and remove carpet and install a laminate floor.  This will allow Mattheu some ability to move around his home and get to the car without rolling through the mud.  For the next several months he will be in and out of the house on a regular basis for doctor's appointments and treatments.  The Thomas family could use all the support they can possibly get at this time.
