MATT TAUGHT ME is the unimaginable, but true story of Matthew Russo, an innocent, beautiful, little boy whose improbable existence on this earth demonstrates all that life has to offer and all that life can take away. The story seamlessly chronicles the riveting and harrowing struggle of one family's battle against leukemia, with the miraculous life experiences of Matthew, a child whose existence on this earth can only be termed, other-worldly. The family's past achievement, by virtue of their participation in the American Dream, is ravaged, first by Down's Syndrome, and second, by leukemia. Through this entire battle stands the unwavering spirit of one little boy, Matthew, who, while the world surrounding him struggles to "save" him and to preserve their own empty, distorted lives, he essentially "flips the script" and teaches the world around him how to live a decent, moral, spectacular and miraculous life, instead. Throughout this entire ordeal of inexplicable suffering, Matthew's indomitable spirit never waivers and the inspiration garnered therefrom is unimaginable. From Matthew's lead, Matthew's father is provided with insight, peace, spirituality and understanding previously absent from his life. Whether one cares for an infirmed, hospitalized or disabled individual, whether one is currently battling against grief, sadness or depression, or whether one just seeks to improve the quality and appreciation of their own life, all l will benefit exponentially from being taught by Matthew.
