If you didn’t read my Wednesday column about Matthew McDonnell, he is a 6½-year-old boy from South Abington Twp. fighting a rare cancer for the fourth time.

From 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday at South Abington Park, he will offer “Matthew’s Miraculous Hot Cocoa Stand.”  All proceeds will go to children’s cancer research.

Over 20-plus years in this business, I don’t remember meeting a soul as inspiring as this kid. I don’t like hot cocoa, but I love Matthew McDonnell. Please join me on Saturday to share a mug of stubborn cheer with him and his inspiring parents, Linda and Patrick McDonnell. 

If Matthew doesn’t run out of hot cocoa on Saturday, we should all swallow hard.
