Pancakes for Matthew…You’re invited!
News 13 has been following the journey of Matthew Sloan Walker, a 6 year
old diagnosed with an ultra-rare brain disorder that does not allow him
to talk or speak.**Matthew is 1 of 35 in the whole world with this
And now Matthew’s family was just given the news that he also suffers
from a very serious seizure disorder.
Matthew is in the hospital undergoing all kinds of tests. Now Because
Matthew’s Brain disorder is so rare, insurance denies any coverage of
his medical expenses and the family must pay out of pocket.
But that’s where you can lend a helping hand and all you have to do is
show up at Applebees in West Hazleton Saturday morning with an empty
stomach.**The restaurant is sponsoring a Flapjack Fundraiser with
proceeds going to Matthew’s medical costs. Breakfast will be served from
8 to 10 Saturday morning and will cost $7.00 for adults and $4.50 for
children 10 years and under. Matthew Sloan Walker is the son of Jonathan
& Cynthia Walker of Heathrow, Florida, but the family hails from
Freeland.For more information on Saturday’s breakfast call Matthews
