Riley wish comes true -Matts Mission Children charity - 14 October 2014.
Riley has Sbs....short gut syndrome.
Hes only got 19cm left on top bowel an 18cm on bottom bowel so 35cm left out of the 250cm a new born baby has not sure if its grown or how much it has grown but ya bowel does grow with you.
Despite being in and out of hospital and numerous operations and covered in tubes and difficult to eat foods he is still a happy little boy. As always the family had the chance to give up to 3 wishes and the first is always sorted if possible and the wish was a Rabbit and the hutch was provided and food and treats. The family then were taken to the Indian restaurant where I bought Riley parents some champagne as well as a treat and then a meal for them all including Ruby Riley sister who has also been effected with her Brother illness like most siblings it is a big change in there lives.
The family were very pleased, Ruby wanted Matt to stay, Riley was full of smiles as the photos show. The Rabbit is called Mr Sniffles named by Ruby.
Thierry Disney on Ice Dare to Dream family trip Halloween. 31 October 2013.
For a while now Matt had wanted to do something for this amazing family who Matt has had the pleasure of knowing for many years, and when one of the children was too poorly to attend this show Matt then decided to take Thierry instead.
Although gutted that Owen could not attend he will still get a nice treat when he is well enough but he did not long back get a visit from Batman and Robin with a Mickey teddy and gift for his sister, Owen has Menkes which also includes Brain Damage. Get well soon Owen x
Moving forward Matt wanted to make sure that the tickets went to another special family and that family was Thierry and his mom and daughter and aunty who have been through so much heartache having lost little baby Kamron. Kam died having been taken in the most tragic of ways at the hands of a monster who was trusted by the mother of Kam and Thierry was only aged 3 years old when it happened and not only lost his brother but his mom was arrested unfairly for 3 months apart from him, quality time was missed and Matts Mission Children's Charity -Making Smiles Glow today wanted to give some of that quality time lost back.
Mickey Mouse came with Matt to collect them and Thierry and his sister got gifts at the show which included food/drink and flashing toys and drinking cups. It was lovely to see Thierry smiling and for him to share the trip with his family and allow him to forget for the day just what happened to his brother.
The full permission to talk about the tragic loss of Kamron and permission for photos have been given by Thierry mom Sarah and aunty Stacey. Please like and share the charity page they have as they are close to registering there own charity which I am million percent behind having previously raised money and donated to them.

Jessie J at the LG arena Birmingham 18th Oct 2013.
Maria is an amazing young girl who has been battling Cancer. She continues to smile and even though she is having Chemo treatment which knocks her about she is so strong.
The tickets were originally for another little girl but she could not make it and the other little girl become poorly so Matt then decided to ask if Maria would like to go and Matt spoke with her mother.
Little did Matt know that it is a year to the day that Maria was diagnosed with Cancer so this trip was lovely for her and even though already supported earlier on in the year when she had her nail art done at the salon in town and was given New Look clothes outfits, she deserved the tickets tonight, she is a massive fan.
Matt did try his best to sort out meeting Jessie J and Matt contacted management in London and emailed them and spoke with them but Matt had to await email back but did not have his phone working as the battery went, Matt explained to box office and stewards and then finally Matt seen a security man backstage around the corner, it looked promising for the first few hours as Matt stayed in the rain and waiting for that yes for Maria to meet Jessie but the last few minutes someone came out and said cant happen so that was that, Matt asked for autograph instead for her but that could not be done neither.
Maria has a beaming smile on her face and was very excited. She purchased a poster and t-shirt with spends given and then before the concert food and drinks were provided.

Matthew gets a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny - 28 March 2013.
Nomination that came in from Matthew mother: Dear Easter Bunny,I was wondering if you would consider my severely autistic son and his sister. Maybe I should explain a little about Matthew my son, he is severely autistic and has never spoken and may never, last year after 15 operations to clear his bowels he had major surgery to remove part of his bowel, unfortunately 10 days after his surgery he was becoming desperately ill, a ct revealed our worst fears, Matthews bowel had burst and he was being poisoned, he was taken down to theatre through the night in a 9hr surgery, after a serious reaction to his antibiotics and a major reaction to 2 blood transfusions Matthew seemed to be recovering but his bowel was so badly damaged he has been left with a colostomy bag for life, we spent over 2mths a Birmingham Childrens Hospital, his bowel developed another hole and this may be the start of crohns disease his consultant says and still needs more tests, in all of this his 8yr old sister has endured major emotional trauma too and she still remained my lil angel guiding me through. Matthew will be 12 on Saturday a birthday last year we never knew if he would see, he has had 5 majors surgeries after the 15 he first had and I feel Matthew and his younger sister would love a visit if you aren't too inundated with requests, please consider my two precious children, he was so brave I still haven't come to terms with what he went through. Matt visited and interacted with Matthew.
