I am a close personal friend of the Siravo's and knew Matty personally. He was a remarkable young boy. The MattyFund is a wonderful tribute to his name. The family and staff of the MattyFund care very deeply for people, especially those effected by epilepsy. I have attended several of their events since the foundations fruition and the number of people they help and the number of supporters is very touching. I will continue to support the Siravo's and the MattyFund for years to come.

I attended the Matty Fund Snow Angel Ball last night and it was a wonderful, heartfelt experience. The event was extremely well run with countless volunteers helping out with every facet of the Ball. There was a real sense of commitment and also a feeling of family amongst all those attending. The feature presentation focused on one family and their daughter, all of whom were benefitting from The Matty Fund's services. It was truly touching. The auction items were exceptional, the food was delicious, and the band, Sugar, was outstanding. Just a great time for a great cause.

I was recently introduced to The MATTY FUND by a friend who sits on the board, and who's daughter is afflicted by epilepsy. It is a Foundation that provides resources, education, and assistance to families touched by epilepsy and I am pleased to be associated with this tremendous cause.

I've had the opportunity to work with the Matty Fund for the past several years, interacting with the office staff, founders, volunteers and families who benefit from their services and resources. The warmth and personal attention given to families is truly inspiring to see. From a humble beginning, The Matty Fund has grown into a robust resource for epilepsy support throughout the community!

Advocacy for any patient is important, however the Siravo's have taken advocacy to another level. Matty was and is their love as well as the rest of their children. However, not every parent(s) devote their life to help fill the void that others feel given the same situation. They have gone a long way in helping children and parents dealing with the many forms of epilepsy. Their work is truly heartfelt and meaningful.
