Welcome to Matthias Always and Forever
In April 2010 our 9 year old son Matthias (known as Thi) was diagnosed with a rare prostatic tumour. After months of rigorous treatment we entered Christopher’s Shooting Star Chase Hospice to complete the last few weeks of Matthias life. During this time he was visited by his all time hero Steven Gerrard. Matthias died 23rd December 2011. His brave, inspirational and totally accepting character has resulted in our website. We will never stop loving Matthias as he will never stop loving us… ALWAYS AND FOREVER. So on 23rd November 2013 we will hold our first event in his memory.
Our aim is to raise money for the Steven Gerrard Foundation and Shooting Star Chase Hospice, to say thank you, and to carry on spreading just a little bit more of Matthias’ inspirational character and love around.
ALWAYS AND FOREVER. X
Matthias always and forever
In Memory of Matthias (Thi) Barker 23 January 2001- 23 December 2011and a thank you to Steven Gerrard and the staff at Christopher's Shooting Star Chase.
