Matthew’s life-flight trip to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in 2015 was actually the third time he’d been there. Born with a congenital heart defect, Matthew had open heart surgery at Children’s when he was just seven months old and again at age 5. Back then, his parents thought they were done with surgeries and hospital stays. But one night on the way home from basketball practice, just seconds from their own driveway, the car carrying 13-year-old Matthew, his 11-year-old brother, Drew, and their dad was struck head-on. Matthew and his father both had life-threatening injuries. Drew did not survive.
