"Thank you so much for my quilt, it's the best gift ever!" (Matthew's own words)

Matthew's quilt is absolutely amazing! Thank you to everyone that has taken the time and effort to make this most amazing quilt I have ever seen, and to the admin team and everyone that has made this possible! Thank you all very much!! Matthew has slept with it every night since it arrived and it has been a real comfort the last few days as he's been poorly xxxx

Biography

Matthew was born at 29 weeks weighing 3lb, he had a brain heamorrahage at few days old and developed hydrocephalus, he had a VP shunt inserted at 5 weeks old.

Matthew suffers from painful spasms and severe stiffness and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 1 year old.

Matthew had an ITB pump inserted almost 5 years ago to help control his spasticity and spasms and has had to have hip surgeries and tendon releases due to dislocating hips and muscle contractures, his last operation was 6 weeks ago.

Matthew's a full time wheelchair user and is a very happy and chatty boy who makes me very proud.
