Matthew Slattery update

This week’s edition of The Catholic Review features a touching story on Matthew Slattery’s friends who have decorated trees for the Kennedy Krieger Institute benefit, The Festival of Trees.

Matthew was in a horrific crash with his family. His mother died and his brother was hurt as well. Matthew is currently at Kennedy Krieger Institute.

I wanted to correct something in my story. It said he’s in a coma. But, that’s not true, thankfully. Word from Kennedy Krieger says, “Matthew is awake and receiving intensive rehabilitative therapies at Kennedy Krieger Institute.”

I encourage you to visit the blog from Matthew’s dad, Ed.
