Matthew McDonnell is a 6th grade student at Abington Heights Middle School who was diagnosed with a rare form of Wilm’s Tumor (kidney cancer) at age three. He battled and defeated the disease 5 times since 2014.
Now that Matthew is in remission, he has started a non-profit organization, “Matthew’s Hope 4 Miracles.” Matthew’s mission is to raise awareness of the lack of funding for pediatric cancer research, to raise funds for more effective treatment options that will lead to a cure, and to help other children and their families who are battling pediatric cancer.
