Family and friends,

We want to thank all of you for the prayers you gave to our son Eli over the many years. I will tell you that a part of our heart is gone forever as we miss our sweet Angel every second of every day. We must in Eli’s memory, and honor, try to find a cure for childhood cancer.  As you know, the drugs (Poison) being used to cure, or try to cure, our children are from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s……. There has only been one FDA approved drug in over 20 years for childhood cancer, and this tragic and unacceptable……

Therefore, we have created a website for our Eli. This website will be updated to show you upcoming events, as well as a photo gallery from the events that we hold to raise money for the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation.

You will see on the site two listed organizations. One is the Alex’s foundation that Eli loved and raised a lot of money for. Eli bELIeved in a cure for leukemia and we will continue to support this foundation in Eli’s memory. Austin has taken over the Eli and Alex’s Lemonade stand. At the last event we had during the Oxford Little League parade and pancake breakfast we raised over $1,700.00.

The other listed organization is The more people that are registered on this site the better chances a child will have for a good match for a bone marrow transplant.

We must advocate for our children because they can’t. The lack of funding for childhood cancer research is horrific! We should not have to go to Washington, DC and ask congress for more funding to save the lives of children in the world when this should be their goal. So much money is wasted on meaningless things and destructive acts instead of using funds to give life to our nations future – the children.

Let’s find a cure together! Please visit and register on the site. Share the site on your Facebook by clicking on the SHARE links. The Adsense links on each post and on the side help raise funds for the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation.  You can help out by visiting the ad links you are interested in.

Be a part of the events in memory of Eli. We can only win this fight together so please let me see your name registered to the site. I will tell you there is more work to be done on the site, and my friend Bert in Germany is the one putting the site together and this is a blessing to us. Bert is the owner of the XLForum that Eli was a member of and I still am. So thank you all for being the support we need to make this a total success.

Let’s kill Childhood Cancer and let’s give these children more hope (and a future) for a real cure to this terrible and senseless diseases.

    I know that this week will be especially tough on all of you. It is on my mind everyday. I am sure Eli is happier than ever so he would probably like his family to be happy too.

    I think about the book Heaven Is For Real. It brings me peace.

    Love all of you Barbara
