Who is that little boy in the red shirt?

So many people ask me about Matthew, the little boy wearing a red shirt in our new holiday commercial. He doesn’t speak a word but his eyes and bandaged neck have touched so many. We wanted to share Matthew’s story with you. The bandage on his neck covers a healing Tracheotomy scar (a surgical opening made in the neck for breathing) but I’m happy to report that Matthew is a vivacious little boy who lovesto talk!

We’ll keep you posted on Matthew’s progress as his treatment continues over the holidays and into the New Year.

    The holiday commercial is wonderful, and it reminds me of my daughter and her week stay in the neurology unit. All we wanted to do is to go home. We knew we were in the best hospital. Keep up the good work!
