Mathew's Story:
(10.21.10) Mathew and his twin brother Daniel were born 2 months premature. Around 9 months old, Mathew began having seizures and his development began to slow. He was taken to a doctor where he was diagnosed with a seizure disorder. Mathew began to make improvements slightly until the age of 5 when his seizures progressively began to get worse. He eventually stopped eating and had to have a feeding tube put in. Last year, he was also diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and fitted with a brace to help him walk. Mathew is a happy 12 year old that enjoys going to school, playing with his two dogs, listening to music and traveling, especially to the beach. While Mathew's health has stabilized for the time being, his twin brother David also has some of the same medical conditions but to a lesser degree. Sparrow funds raised will help the family to pay for additional medical expenses for the care and treatment of Mathew and his brother. _____________________________________________________________________
