This is Matthew's story

Matthew was 16 years old when he passed away from progressed, recurrent medulloblastoma. (brain and spinal cancer).

Matthew raised nearly $7,000 for Sharing and Caring Hands. This is a Minneapolis homeless shelter run by Mary Jo Copeland. We sold green (favorite color) silicone bracelets that said "Matthews Way".

Matthew played Blaine football, soccer and baseball.

Loving and missing Matthew tremendously this holiday season are parents Jay and Debora, siblings Andrew (22), Jessica (21), Alexandra (20), Ashley (14) and Jason (12). Matthew's last words were "Ohh, I feel horrible. Don't leave me. I love you the most!"
