Meet Matthew Fernandez, a 22 year old with Cerebral Palsy.
Matthew is one of the most inspirational and motivational people on this planet despite the circumstances and conditions he has faced throughout his life. He messaged Charlie on Instagram and instantly Charlie knew he was the one.
After arriving at his house, Charlie asked Matthew what his dream is. He said his dream is to be able to walk on his own, what’s holding back his dream is the fact he lives in a two story apartment that he can’t practice walking in and it’s in a dangerous neighborhood so he can’t practice walking outside either. His mom has to walk him up the stairs every night and has to be with him 24/7 so she isn’t able to work. This situation is so tough for her because she wants to see his dream come true, but they’re held back by finances.
Follow along Matthew's Journey on his Instagram @emazingmatthew!
HELP MAKE THIS DREAM COME TRUE!
This is where our community and The Dream Machine Foundation can really help Matthew and his family. We donated $5000 to kick-off this dream, but that's not all we are going to do. We setup a GoFundMe with a goal of $100,000 so that they can get in a flat house that’s wheelchair accessible and in a good neighborhood, also to be able to afford a wheelchair accessible van, physical therapy & start up costs for a clothing line Matthew wants to make to help other kids with cerebral palsy.
