When he was 9-years-old, Colton Matter was diagnosed with high-risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2009. Since then, he has endured two bone marrow transplants, one stem cell transplant, and one revolutionary T-cell therapy trial to beat this cancer. Colton has battled 5 times in 7 years. On June 8th, 2016, his family received the news that he was in remission! Although he is currently on his 18th month in remission, he is still on chemo while we figure out our next steps. Our hero is a true warrior and we are always praying for a miracle and a cure.
Colton's Army Guild
Colton's Army started as a movement of prayer warriors and supporters who came together to love a cancer hero called Colton. Our journey has been long and bumpy, but it has led us to the point where we feel it is the right time to do something more -- so we created a Seattle Children's Hospital Guild.
Our guild is about HOPE and making this fight Matter by giving back, paying it forward, and letting our orange hearts show the kindness and love that we have been blessed with along the way. It is about raising a RUCKUS to CURE cancer through our efforts of awareness and fundraising.
