One-of-a-Kind Player – Matthew

Matthew is 7 years old and literally one-of-a-kind. He has an extra chromosome that is entirely unique when compared to the world’s data bank of chromosomal disorders. Matthew has had delayed development in every way but started walking at 3 years old. His low muscle tone has made things as simple as swallowing very difficult so he is tube fed. Matthew also has Goldenhar Syndrome characterized by asymmetrical facial abnormalities. He was born with only 1 ear but recently received his second ear at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. His mom knew one day he would speak, and 2 years ago he said ‘MOM’, one of the best days ever for his mother! Matthew is proud that he can play baseball just like his older brother!

I was fortunate to be able to take care of Matthew in child care. He has always been an amazing little boy. He is my hero.
