Our 2013 Bikers Have Heart kid, Mateo Lopez.

f30c5013d4c2df2a8201578fd0095fb1_ef44537b5baa7758.jpgTwo year old, Mateo was born two months ahead of schedule and spent the first eight weeks of his life in the neonatal intensive care unit. Around six months old, Mateo started having life-threatening seizures. Surgery was done to remove Mateo's tonsils and adenoids to aid in his breathing, but shortly after the surgery he developed a very severe case of pneumonia. Mateo has still not recovered from the damage done to his little body and currently requires several machines, including a ventilator, feeding pumps and tanks to help keep him alive. Mateo's needs are so great that he needs to be transported by ambulance for regular doctor appointments as well as travel by air ambulance every 3 months to Portland. We raised money for the family to buy a special van to transport Mateo.
