Letter from Matthew

Matthew asked me to pen this memo from him.  He has developed a bit of a mouth on him so I had to clean it up a bit.

Team Matthew,
I had my first day of radiation today and am not sure what to expect.  In many respects, its good that I am only 2 and I have yet to learn what is supposed to hurt and what isn't.   My daddy calls me his hero.  I don't think I am a hero.  I am just an ordinary dude who happens to be doing something extraordinary.  Not unlike many of you.  If you do not know what I am talking about, you have have not been reading this blog very closely.  There are countless examples of ordinary people, you, doing extraordinary things for me, my family, and eachother. 

So, let's make a deal.  I am going to keep fighting and kicking this cancer's ass, and you keep doing what you are doing.  I know I can't do this without my team behind me. 

Who's with me?

Matthew
Team Matthew Chairman of the Board
