ELI’S RIDE FOR A CURE AUGUST 2, 2014
I wanted to first give you a heart felt thank you for being by my side today in the first annual Eli’s Ride For A Cure. My best friend David Middleman and I were so happy to see all of you show your support, and ride in honor and memory of my HERO in life my son Eli.Eli loved music and art therapy during his many hospital stays. Because of this the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation, Inc. donated $1,000.00 to A.I. duPont Hospital for Children| Nemours during Eli’s Ride For A Cure. I got word the music therapy department would love to purchase an acoustic electric guitar as well as 1 or 2 electric piano’s. I reached out to the foundation coordinator at Nemours AI duPont weeks ago
with this request and it came through. These instruments will not only be used by the children on the cancer floor but the whole hospital. Eli would love this because this gave him so much joy when he needed it most. GOD BLESS all of you that support the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation the children need us to STAND together in this FIGHT!Thank you for paying the respects to my son during our visit to Eli’s grave site this meant the world to me.
