Fund Childhood Cancer Research in Honor of Rally Kid Matthew

Matthew’s Cancer Journey

Matthew was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, in 2014 at the age of eleven. He started chemotherapy right away. Not only did he endure harsh chemotherapy treatments, but he also had to make a decision no child should have to make, an amputation or knee replacement to remove the tumor above his knee. The amputation afforded him the best chance to return to an active lifestyle of playing sports. He underwent a procedure called Rotationplasty. It was a tough transition of learning to walk again. But once he finished his treatments, he conquered his fears and went full force into physical therapy. In no time he was back to playing his love of sports.Today, Matthew is a thriving junior at Kennesaw State University studying mechanical engineering. He is very involved with his fraternity, plays soccer and tennis, and works part time. Life keeps him busy, which we are grateful for.

Children are suffering harsh treatments that are over 30 years old. Too many are not surviving due to these harsh treatments and lack of advancement in finding a cure. Rally Foundation has supported Matthew and our family from the beginning of his diagnosis. They are the #1 childhood cancer organization who diligently raises funds for childhood cancer research. Please join us in the fight against childhood cancer. Any amount makes a difference in the lives of children battling cancer!
