Eight-year-old Matthew was born with only half of his heart, a condition known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome. After a series of heart surgeries at MUSC Children's Hospital in Charleston, SC, Matthew is living the life of any normal child. Matthew has big dreams for the future and would like to be an astronaut, teacher and pumpkin farmer when he grows up. Matthew is also a natural fundraiser and inspired his school to raise $3,002.33 for the children treated at MUSC Children's Hospital.
Matthew and his family talk about health care reform at Family Advocacy Day.
