Matthew’s Story — Alyssa House Family Testimonial


“My name is Matthew. When I was born I had hypoplastic left heart syndrome. When I was born I was med-flighted from Johnson City, Tennessee, on July 31, 2008 to the University of Virgina Children’s Hospital … I had three open heart surgeries by age 3.

I had good years until October 2018. I developed a cough.

The heart was producing protein which leaked into my lungs, causing casts [caulk-like plugs] to cling inside of my longs. The disease is known as plastic bronchitis. The only cure is a heart transplant.

I came back to UVA on March 5, 2019, until May, 5, 2019 when a heart was found for me. I stayed at UVA for three weeks and then was released to The Alyssa House. I want to thank my donor and his family, the medical staff and God for seeing me through this time.”
