Three-year-old Mateo is the youngest of three boys. He loves pizza, Halloween, Target, Toy Story, and a good party. When he gets older he wants to play football, just like his big brother. Mateo may be small, but he has a mighty big heart. Just last year, he was growing out his hair to donate to an organization that makes wigs for children with cancer. In the process of growing out his own hair, he was diagnosed with cancer. Mateo had always been a healthy child, so when his parents heard that their sweet baby boy was not only sick, but had cancer, they were devastated. His mom’s first question to the doctors was,
“Is my son going to live?”
The doctors said, “We can’t tell you that. We don’t know.”
