  2. We continue to pray for your family, and are spreading the message to get as many praying as possible. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers, and the video is beautiful, thank you for letting us see your beautiful and amazing son in action. God bless always.

  3. I am believing with all my heart and soul for a miracle for Ezra. Matthew 19:26 – Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” I’m not giving up hope, I’m not gonna quit believing. My heart and prayers are with all of you.

  4. I don’t personally know you but I feel like I do. Me & my family have been following your story and we are praying for a miracle. I have decided to fast & be in prayer all day. The cleaning and the bills can wait… baby Ezra can’t. Dear Father God, Please be with this family. Please poor your favor on them and I ask for your miracle, sweet Jesus, that only you can provide. Please bless this amazing family and keep them close to you Lord. Poor your healing love on this family and give them peace. I love you Lord Jesus. Amen

  5. We are praying (without ceasing) to Our Heavenly Father who IS holding Ezra in His Arms right now, loving Ezra even more that we can possibly imagine.

    May the Grace of Our Awesome God Be With You,
    The Beck Family

  6. I continue to pray for you all daily. May God surround you with his loving care and continue to give you the amazing strength you need on this journey. Thank you for sharing Ezra and his story with all of us.

  7. Ezra has given me the courage I could not seem to muster beforehand to have faith. His story is about love and love conquers all. The miracle is Ezra and always will be. You are blessed.

  8. I’m out of words after watching the video. I just don’t know what to type. We are EXPECTING a miracle from our God who I truly believe is going to reveal himself to the thousands of us in and outside of our area who are needy and prayerful for this little boy.

  9. I don’t personally know your family, but Ezra is in my prayers. i sent out prayer requests today to our study group, and Ezra was a big part of that email. We’re all lifting your family up…we serve a MIGHTY God…one that loves us dearly and has a purpose in everything. Keep the faith- we all are.

  10. My heart goes out to your family. Ezra is a beatiful soul and an amazing little warrior. My prayers and thoughts are with you! Please Lord watch over this little one of yours and give his mommy and daddy peace and love. In the name of our Lord. Amen!

  11. Thank you so much for posting the video. You do not know me, but I have been praying and hoping for Ezra. To be able to see you both interacting with Ezra, and to see and hear Robyn speaking, is very special for you to share.
    I will keep praying hard.

  12. I heard about Ezra’s fight through my niece’s mother Diana Denisulk. I’m sorry you all are going through such a difficult time. I am adding you all, especially Ezra to my prayer list. May God reach out and heal his little body.

  13. An army of MOPS are preparing our hearts for fasting and praying on Ezra’s behalf again this weekend. We pray that God will find our sacrifice pleasing and that Ezra’s healing will be speedy and complete. We love you guys!!

  14. Exquisite, AJ…Robyn, I hope that if anyone, including myself, is ever in your situation that they would exude the grace and wisdom you possess. Love and overwhelming prayer coming to you all.

  15. You dont know me, but I started reading you’re blogs yesterday. He is fighting with all of his might for yall. he is such a beautiful little boy, I am praying hard that he gets a much deserved miracle soon. I can’t imagine what yall are going through, it still breaks my heart. Prayers go out daily and often. Keep fighting Ezra!!

  16. You dont know me, but I know your story. I have been praying for Ezra. I am sending love and light for him and for the family. Keep your faith for miracles do happen in this life.

  17. What a touching video. My family will continue to pray for Ezra as he continues to fight on. May God bless your family during this trying time.

  18. What a great video! Robyn, you are displaying so much courage! I am so proud of you guys and will continue to HOPE and PRAY for a MIRACLE!
    Wish I could be there to give you guys hugs, support and a shoulder to lean on!

    With Love and Hope!

  19. “And these signs will accompany those who believe…and they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well” (Mark 17)
    Heavenly Father how we thank you for your promises God! You have promised that whoever believes in you shall perform these miracles in your name! Those that are with Ezra will lay their hands on him and the whole world will watch as your baby becomes well by your favor and mercy! We believe that you have baby Ezra in your arms this very minute God and that your mighty hand is in control at all times! Thank you Jesus for your love and for taking the fear and worry from our friends in Christ, the Matthews family. We bow to you Lord and we thank you even in a time of trouble for you are God! Amen

  20. Wow. As a parent, I cannot even imagine, the struggle and pain you all are going through. I won’t even try. I lost my mother at 18 to cancer. I know that battle well. But to be fighting for my childs life? More than I can imagine. Praying for you to find peace.

  21. beautiful. heartbreaking.

    Robyn, I can see God’s quiet strength in you, so be encouraged that He is holding you and Kyle up, even if you don’t feel it right now.

    I am praying for Ezra, for you both and for your marriage, for Charley. May God’s love surround you all.

  22. Hi Robyn, You don’t know me but a dear friend of mine who just lost her daughter to GBM brain cancer told us about your sweet Ezra. I wanted to tell you that our family will be lifting you all up in prayer. We will be praying for Ezra, and praying for a miracle. May the Lord continue to wrap His Loving and Strong around each of you.
    Rest in His Perfect Peace,

  23. My heart is broken for Ezra and for you both. I would give anything I have to make him better and since it seems that praying is my only option, i will do that constantly. He is an amazing, unforgettable little boy, what a blessing his life is.

  24. We never understand why such things happen to precious innocent children like Ezra, but what we do know is God has chosen your family to be a light through Ezra and that is exactly what you are being in the midst of such a trial. A light to so many you are. You are touching lives and bringing many to Christ that may not have known him otherwise. God is sooo Good and my family is in constant prayer for your precious family. I pray you get that miracle that we are all hoping for and soon! Stay strong. Much love to you!

  25. I can’t find words adequate enough to express my compassion for Ezra and you as a whole family. A long time ago, a special friend taught me that we must “praying believingly” — that God will answer with a miracle. And, that is how I am praying for Ezra…

    He is so incredibly beautiful. His whole little being emanates joy and strength! What a blessing he is and will be…

    The Lord be with you and may His grace continue to be your source of hope and strength…for this journey and always.

    How awesome that we serve a mighty, living, loving and merciful God!

    Thank you for sharing in His glory through your faith and perseverance in the life of Ezra!

    Love & God bless, Lillian
    Jude 1:24-26

  26. Like so many others my heart has broken reading what your family has had to endure. What keeps me hopeful is reading and understanding your unwaivering faith in God. God is good. May he hold you in the palms of his hand and heal beautiful Ezra!! I will continue to pray for Ezra and all of your family every day!!!

  27. your baby stays in my prayers everyday. it seems lately he is all i think about, and pray about. i know in my heart that he is a fighter and he will beat this. Lord please watch over and protect this baby, give him the strength he needs to beat this and give the family the strength they need to help him. Please Lord, let this baby get better day by day, AMEN.

  28. I am fasting and praying today. I believe the Almight God is working. I’m praying for a miracle for Ezra, for hisplt level to begin to come up and stay up and for the tumors to begin shrinking and that he is restored new again. As I pray for him I lay my hand on his pictures on my computer screen since I am not there to lay hands on him. I believe God is lining up the greatest miracle ever! I can’t wait to see it happen! I feel as though your family has become a part of ours and in Christ we all ARE family. I wish we still lived in Tampa and were at GFC. I would love to have been able to know you like Kim and Larry do. Kim speaks very highly of you guys. I will continue to fast and pray as much as I can. God continue to rain down your mercies on this family, continue your healing miracle, breathe life in to Ezra and take away the illness that is in him. We know of your miracles, have read about them in your word, and many have witnessed them first hand. Please perform a miracle now with Ezra. Thank you Lord…Thank you. Amen!

  29. Dear Matthews Family,
    I want you to know that I am praying for you. I’m praying for stregnth for the fight, courage to face the unknown and comfort for your spirit. Ezra is in the hands of the Lord. I beleive that the magnitiude of our struggles on earth equal the magnitude of blessing in heaven. May God bestow the gifts of the spirit upon you – love, joy, peace patience and understanding. Thank you for sharing your story.

  30. Kyle and Robin, you two are amazing. As a mother of two girls, my heart just breaks. I watch you Kyle on stage during Saturday night services, and you appear so strong and passionate as you sing and praise God. I am praying for Ezra for that miracle from our Lord. I can’t imagine the emotions you and your family are going through, but please know that many of us on pulling for Ezra. I check for your updates multiple times during the day. Spend as much time together and we will all keep praying. God Bless.

  31. Words cannot express how heavy my heart is for your son, and for your family. My daughter is your sons age and I just can`t imagine, I just sit here and cry out to God for His Spirit to comfort Ezra`s body, to give him peace, and to surround your family with a heavy presence. What a beautiful and perfect little boy God has given to you and Ezra is such a sweet sweet boy, what a special person he must be for God to have called him to such a hardship of a journey that not just any child could endure. It was always those who suffered much in the Bible who became the most outstanding, and in his little life so far look at how many Ezra has brought before the throne of Grace, as has you and your wife and all you have been through.
    I am from the east coast of Canada, and have sent a prayer chain out to churches and individuals straight across my country. Know that Ezra and your family are being lifted up today by so many people all over the world I`m sure.
    With my whole heart I am broken for your family before God.

  32. I wanted to add that my 2 year old daughter came over to the screen to watch the video and then said `Emma pray for him!` I said `You want to pray for the little boy right now` and she said yes- normally I lead her in prayer but for the first time in her life she stood up and with boldness like I have never seen from her shy self she pointed and raised her voice and said `JESUS HELP HIM!`and then got close to the screen as to hug the laptop and said quietly again `Pease Jesus help him`
    What you have to know is she also speaks sign language- yet she never repeats her signs, and as she was saying what she did she kept signing `please`. Even the children are asking on your behalf.

  33. We pray for your family and your precious boy. I can’t even imagine what you are and have already gone through. May God grant the miracle he so desperately needs. He is a brave, sweet little soul!

  34. Gunard and I want to wish the very best for EZRA, and so much support for your family…. Our Prays are with you all…

  35. Hi Robyn … you don’t know me, but someone posted your site on FB and I just watched the video. I know Ezra is really young, but have you read the book, “World without Cancer” that talks about the use of Laetrile (vitamin B17) to treat cancer? It may not be available in the US, but we have friends who have used it successfully to treat cancer. We’ll be praying for all of you!

  36. Everyone here at the Layla Grace Children’s Cancer Research foundation is praying for Ezra and the rest of your family. We have shared your story on our Facebook wall and have asked everyone who reads to pray for you as well. Keep fighting, Ezra!!

  37. I only read a few words of your story before the tears began. Having young children of my own, I truly understand the trauma of fighting with every cell of your body for your child’s life. There is nothing I can say to ease your pain, but please know there are people all over the world praying for you and Ezra. God bless you all.

  38. praying and fasting along with so many others…..for God’s miracle!! Ezra is an amazingly beautiful little boy….thank u for the video!! 🙂 nicole

  39. Hello Matthews Family- I am a friend of the Quattrochi’s and the Tracy’s from TN and have been following your family’s story for a while now. I’m praying for you and your wife and that sweet baby boy. Prayers are being lifted for you now.

  40. Robyn and Kyle, you two are amazing…keep strong in your faith and love for one another!! I am continuing to pray for your precious lil boy that a MIRACLE will happen! Prayers and positive thoughts to your family.

  41. We continue to pray for a miracle for Ezra. Our thoughts are filled with hope and prayers for your family. Reading your updates, so beautifully written, and seeing Robyn speak so gracefully and full of strength on your video, is a beautiful witness of faith in our Heavenly Father. We thank you for sharing your story. We are praying for you constantly, and we will continue to do so until your precious son Ezra is healed by Our Father God. You are on our minds and in our hearts always.

  42. I just came across your family tonight, by way of Facebook and the Layla Grace Foundation. Reading your story, one wonders how much a single family can endure. The love you both have for your children is amazing, and this ordeal has obviously given you strength you never knew you had (or wanted to have, I’m sure). May God bring your family peace…and hope. May his healing hands embrace Ezra and Charley, and heal your hearts as well. I will continue to pray for a miracle for beautiful Ezra. No child should have to endure the pain and suffering he has endured.

  43. Phil and I went to school with Kyle…my heart aches for your family today. Lifting you up in prayer for that sweet boy of yours and your hearts as you walk closer to our Father through this trial. Wish I had more words that would take away pain, but there are none, I know. Love to you three.
    Your brother and sister in Christ.

  44. You are all in my prayers. I pray, hope & believe that God will give you the miracle your all looking for. God bless all of you.

  45. We are praying…and fasting tomorrow for a miracle. God is able and no matter what, He is faithful. I have no words, heart broken for you in the road you are walking and praying for grace, wisdom and overwhelming peace for you and sweet Ezra.

  46. You are such a beautiful, beautiful family. Your video and story has brought me to tears. You are constantly in my heart and prayers.
    Love, Dawn

  47. Your family is constantly in our thoughts and constantly in our prayers. You have forever touched us with your unwaivering faith. God bless you, your wife, and your precious Ezra and Charley.

  48. Robyn and Kyle, I am praying for you both tonight. Your genuine truth, fear, pain, humbleness, doubt, faith, and courage place me on my knees in awe. I am a Children’s Pastor in the Tampa Bay area and friends of yours past Ezra’s story onto me … I am also a Mom that has experienced loss of pregnancies (14 and 17 week losses), prematurity (31 and 34 weekers), and cancer (Aggressive Malignant Melanoma) all before the age of 34. I tell you this to let you know that in that fear, anger, and pain … joy does come in the morning. Listen to Stephen Curtis Champman’s song about the fear and sorrow in dealing with such pain over the last few years. It is called Beauty Will Rise … I will pray often for you and Kyle, and for a miracle in Ezra’s life to make him strong and well again. God is BIGGER thank even this! Love to you all.

  49. Kyle and Robin,
    Because of my daughter Aubrey, I have been following your story. I am so very sorry for your loss with Price and have hopeful thoughts for Charlie. Kyle, I used to babysit you…I cannot imagine your pain and suffering, nor can I imagine your wife’s either. I pray (and I am not religious) that your family makes it thru all of this. My heart and soul goes out to Ezra,you,and Robin. God Bless and watch over you all.

  50. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope you know that Ezra’s story has touched people around the world and that if he could be cured by the hopes and prayers of many, then it would certainly be done. With love and best wishes from Lynda (South Africa)

  51. We continue to constantly raise Ezra up in prayer. Our hearts and minds are on you and your family throughout the day and night.

  52. I am praying for Ezra and your family. I can’t even imagine what you are going through. I hope the Lord gives you the strength to go each day and pray that Ezra receives his miracle! Children are God’s little miracle.

  53. We will keep Ezra in our thoughts and prayers. That a miracle will happen for him and your family.

    The Wallace Family (North Carolina)

  54. Thank you for sharing the video of your fight. You are so incredibly brave and strong. Ezra is lucky to have such devoted and loving parents. Your family is constantly in my thoughts…

  55. WE’re rallying behind you, sweet Ezra. We love you here in Ohio and are praying without ceasing. Continue to hold fast, buddy. Fight, fight, fight with all you have and know that the Lord is with you and very near to your every need.

  56. Good morning Kyle and Robyn, not sure if you hear about this Dr. in Houston, Texas or not. He is currently treating one of the ladies niece’s at GFC for Cancer. I just spoke with Christina Rios at their clinic her direct line is 713 335 5639, the drs. name is Stanislaw R. Burzynski. She mentioned they treat patients with Neuroblastoma. Praying that this will be helpful to you! God bless, Vivian

  57. Robyn, Kyle, Ezra, Charley. More love and prayers are being cried out to Our Merciful God for Ezra’s Healing. We have not stopped praying nor will we stop! We pray that you are all filled with His Holy Spirit and Blessed with a peace only He can bring.
    I am part of The GFC Mops Army that will be FASTING & PRAYING this weekend for Ezra’s COMPLETE HEALING. My family will be fasting and praying as well. This will be the first time we have ever fasted and are honored to sacrifice such little things in the name of your precious son… We will be praying with all that we are that God will answer with a miracle for Ezra. Who is so incredibly amazing. He is so full of love, joy and strength! What a blessing! May the Lord continue to be with you all. We serve and love an awesome God who is also a mighty, living, loving and merciful God!

    Love & God’s Blessings,
    James & Jennifer

  58. Today is a new day and I pray it will be a blessed one for your family and that Ezra is getting stronger by the minute. I await great news for his little miracle. Keep fighting, you are winning this battle I just know it in my heart! God has brought you thus far and he will continue to carry you. Hope you have a great day! Many prayers are going up for you!

  59. I do not know your family but after reading your story I find you to be such special and amazing parents. I have been praying day and night for your beautiful little boy, his little brother and both of you!

    God Bless

  60. I had a vision of baby Ezra it was a huge battle and all of us his prayer warriors were behind him, but he led us brave and strong!!!My family and I honour you Ezra for leading us, and Matthews family for making such a strong warrior to lead Gods people.
    VICTORY IS HIS !!!!!

  61. My love and prayers are with all of you and especially sweet little Ezra. Keep the faith and I pray for strength, comfort and healing for Ezra. XOXOXO

  62. This has to be the most touching, realistic video I have ever seen. Kyle, Robyn and Ezra we are praying and spreading the word. May god lift you up and heal baby Ezra. I love the new pictures everyone looks great, and Baby Charley, what a beautiful boy. I check in every morning and evening so please keep us posted…we love you all.

  63. Kyle,Robyn and Ezra we will continue to include you in our prayers, I pray that God continue to give you the strength and uplift you and that HE will extend HIS hands of healing upon Ezra’s body ….for GOD ..you are our DIVINE HEALER.

  64. My heart and prayers goes out to you guys, your family, and to Ezra. We don’t know why things happen sometimes, but keep the faith and trust in God that His Will, will be done. You are an inspiration to me that you get up there every Saturday and still praise God through a trial in life like this. Keep the faith.

    Steve Fritch

  65. Dear God we love you, thank you and know that there is a reason for all of this. Lord please let your will be done. Help comfort this family through this trial; In Jesus’s name, Amen.

  66. I came across this while on the Layla Grace page and thought I would let you know that i will be praying for Ezra and his family good luck to you and Good bless
