Matteo attends my church in Ukraine. He is twelve, but he has a huge dream. Recently, he has been given an opportunity that will change his life and the life of his family, but he needs help to see this dream become reality.
Matteo lives with the effects of Cerebral Palsy, making it extremely difficult for him to walk. Doctors at St. Louis Children’s Hospital have evaluated Matteo and found him to be a good candidate for a surgery that will allow him to walk on his own. An appointment for Matteo to have the surgery is available on August 18th, 2011. This procedure is expected to cost about $80,000 and is not covered by his family’s insurance.
