    Default "Please Support Kyle Matthews' Charity to Fight Cancer"
    If any of you are unfamiliar with the name KYLE MATTHEWS, he is one of the owners and founders of this wonderful site we visit and take part of every day. For those of you that don't know the incredible hardship that has faced his family in the very recent past, I'll leave that up to you to research for yourself. Because Kyle is such a humble, honest and good man he would never do something like this himself, but I feel compelled to do so.

    What I am here to do is ask EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU to visit this site:

    http://www.gifttool.com/athon/MyFund...232&PID=166135

    ...And PLEASE consider supporting Kyle's charity to fight cancer. This is a horrible disease and if enough people would continue to join together in causes like this we CAN make a difference. I PERSONALLY CHALLENGE EVERY PERSON READING THIS TO THINK ABOUT THE MANY DOLLARS YOU HAVE "DONATED" TO PUT A SILLY THEME OR APP ON YOUR IPHONE OR IPOD, AND CONSIDER DONATING AS MUCH IF NOT MORE TO THIS AMAZING CAUSE. In my opinion it is OUR RESPONSIBILITY to support Kyle in this endeavor. I know he has helped me COUNTLESS times on trivial issues involving my stupid phone, and I'm sure he has done the same for a lot of you reading this. If not, TRUST ME -- he has indirectly helped you without you even realizing it.

    Thank you so much - and Kyle, if you're reading this I know I just made you very uncomfortable but I'm sorry my friend, i had no other choice.

    It is with great regret that i must inform you all that beautiful baby Ezra Matthews went to be with the Lord early this morning.

    I want to thank each an every one of you that supported this cause and ask that you please continue to support this or any cause to eradicate this world of this cruel and thoughtless disease, and pray for Kyle and his family.

    Heaven has a beautiful new Angel in it's presence today - and I for one am blessed to have been touched by his presence on earth. You will not be forgotten Ezra.

    i appreciate that Rob, but I realize every time I look at that photo of beautiful baby Ezra that I am not. I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes wondering about all the times I've pestered Kyle about setting up a package for submission, getting Cydia Connect access and the like, only to realize that he was probably sitting in a waiting room or holding his boy's hand while responding to my stupid questions with the other. That's a good man.

    mmm I read this in the forum, then read what I wrote on the website. Very sad, very touching story. 3 months ago had my grandfather made him a cancer operation in space (space where only sick people with cancer) and then never forget the sadness in the eyes of these people there, but one I noticed: These people fighting and never give up life. I do not have the financial capacity to help this child, but my heart I hope that it can overcome all difficulties to recover and to understand life as it will make him happy and help him forget about everything in it is now necessary to move .

    I watched my step father die from cancer earlier this year. It is a horrible thing to witness. Although I am new to this site and do not know Kyle personally. he and his family have my prayers.

    I just want to say that I am so proud to be a part of this amazing community. I encourage everyone to continue to show their support of the Children's Hospital, and blow Kyle's original goal out of the water. If you can only donate a dollar or two please do so, and if you can't please keep he and his family in your prayers. Thank you all again so very much

    This is really an amazing community. The fact that we willingly donate to someone that many of us dont know is to me astounding, you have to understand, Ive been involved in MANY communities over the years but by far this is the nicest and best minded one. Thank you so much kyle for this fantastic community and I will definetly be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

    Here is a small way for me to help besides a planned theme and a donation...
    I would like to give something that I would feel might help alot.. If any as many people can wear something like my signature Im sure that more and more people would be able to see the situation and help....
    Here is the code you would put into your signature to place this in your signature!
    "["IMG]http://i1039.photobucket.com/albums/a475/ViiOLENTHD/EisforEzra-1.jpg?t=1284597417[/IMG]Please Support Ezra and His Family ["URL="http://www.gifttool.com/athon/MyFundraisingPage?ID=1390&AID=1232&PID=166135"]HERE["/URL]"

    Simply remove the quotations marks at "["IMG ["URL and ["/URL
    and paste it straight into your signature...

    Wanted to remind everyone to consider supporting this great cause. To make sure you completely understand why this is so important, here is a great description of where your donations go:

    Cure on Wheels raises money for Tampa Bay families coping with a diagnosis of cancer through an annual Cure on Wheels Bike Challenge. This year our event takes place at the beautiful Flatwoods Park located in Tampa Florida. As Florida’s only ride to benefit cancer research, Cure on Wheel’s intention is to successfully meld support from committed cyclists, volunteers, corporate sponsors and individual contributors. All are essential to Cure on Wheel's goal and model: to attain maximum fundraising efficiency while increasing its annual gift. Our hope and aspiration is to provide Tampa Bay families the necessary resources to help them cope with the potentially debilitating diagnosis of cancer.
    ... These are families that have recently discovered their beautiful babies are sick and on top of quite possibly the most horrible news they will ever face, are now faced with a financial crisis due to the expenses associated with fighting this horrible disease, people that our friend Kyle and his family have grown very close to.

    I can't think of a better cause - to help those who are going through possibly the toughest time of their lives with a child in the hospital in very dire condition. Can you imagine adding the additional stress of money issues and worrying about whether you can support your family? Now imagine how woderful it might feel to one of those families to know that complete strangers have made such a selfless gesture to assist them in their time of need.

    Kyle has vowed to put himself out there and ride an awful long way on a bicycle to "earn" the money we donate to support him in this cause, and I don't have to explain again how important the money they can raise will be to families that need it so badly.

    So PLEASE - open your hearts and consider supporting this great cause. Thanks again everyone and God Bless.

    As I sit here now having just seen this thread, well let's just say I haven't had emotions like that since watching my grandmother deal with this horrible disease three years ago last month. My wife lost her dad as well. It is also prominent on my ex wifes side of the family, which causes great concern for me and the future health of my 16yo daughter. I am sitting here and it's taken me 40 minutes to write this as I can't stop crying. I contribute in a few ways to the Jimmy V fund and my daughter also does the Susan G Komen breast cancer walk every year. We are also supporters of the Jimmy Fund another great group that raises millions through the Red Sox charities. Now I am a member of team Mathews!! Tim(TC) I have told you this before you are a hell of a good man, don't doubt that for a second. The community here at MMI is unreal, it's hard to put into words how I feel about you guys/gals but all I know is it is a direct reflection of the kind of people Kyle and Mrs Matthews must be. My thoughts and prayers are with you team Mathews, and my donation has gladly been made. I have rambled on but I will leave you with the words of the great Coach Jim Valvano.....Don't give up, Don't ever give up!!! Here is a link to his very inspirational speech http://cl.ly/6b8eea67d93019c4e640

    Ive had a few run ins with Kyle and he seems like a really great guy.

    Thank you Tim for making this thread.

    Kyle You and your family are in our prayers.

    You guys are awesome, this is a true testimony to what people should be like regardless of the cause. I think if we had more people like you guys in the world this place might not be so hellish sometimes. I will make a donation in the next few days, I have seen far too many people battle this disease to stand by and do nothing. I just want to add My Uncle, God Rest his soul battled cancer and beat the odds several times b4 the lord took him and my aunt is battling it every day and has one of the strongest faiths I have ever seen. Keep up the fight and dont lose faith in God b/c through him all things are possible. I will make an announcement @ my church on Sunday and we will hold a mass prayer for you and yours Kyle. Thanks for all you do here @ MMi and may GOD bless your Family and friends.
