WYLIE, TX (KLTV) - A Christmas wish was fulfilled for a dying boy in Wylie, Texas. Eleven-year-old Matthew Butman, has a rare neurological disease that prevents him from speaking, or even lifting his head.
Matthew had one wish left to fulfill: He wanted to meet Santa Claus.
On Wednesday, his wish came true.
Santa wasn't the only one in the Christmas spirit; Matthew had a sack of toys to give to him for needy kids in the area.
Since his bedroom is his entire world, Matthew lined his bedroom with cards; He wanted to see how many Christmas and birthday cards he could get. As many as 80 cards arrive for him daily; some from as far away as South Korea and the Netherlands.
"Some people send pictures and some put money in theirs, of course, which makes him happy... But i think the smiles and the cards, they all just gives him much more will to fight." Matthew's mother explained.
If you would like to send Matthew Butman a card, or a smile, you can write to him at the address below.
