Recently I looked up the run and contacted Matthew's mom. It turns out that Matthew and Josiah are only a day apart in age and were born at the same hospital! Matthew was diagnosed much earlier than Josiah. It is no surprise that having someone nearby, who has been walking this road for a while before us, was comforting, and we hope to be able to meet in person sometime this summer.
Please consider joining this September at the Miles For Matthew run!
