It has always been a goal of The Matthew Larson Foundation to inspire more and more people to join the fight against pediatric brain tumors.  This page highlights the efforts of some of our newest supporters.

Our best family friends, the Larsons, lost their son Matthew Larson to a rare pediatric brain tumor when he was just 7 years old. Pediatric brain tumors are the number one cancer killer of children. 

I loved Matthew like a brother, and we know Mike would have too. Matthew should have had the opportunity to do so many things, including joining us on our wedding day and absolutely slaying the dance floor. We carry him in our heart always. 

In lieu of wedding gifts, please consider donating to IronMatt (The Matthew Larson Foundation for Pediatric Brain Tumors), a charity we’ve been involved in for the past 10+ years that does a tremendous amount of good providing family aid and research grants to fight this disease. 

Mike and I will receive emails notifying of any donations so we can thank you all accordingly.

We love you Matthew, and we love you all!


To spice up an otherwise dreary, 2020 pandemic Halloween, Next Gen Supporter, Brian Kincade, hosted a Virtual 5K.  News of the event spread through social media and nearly 200 runners raised over $13,000 for the IronMatt mission.

Well done "runners"!
