Former Royal Marine, Matthew Goodman is doing a great thing for a little girl he’s never even met.
Lottie Woods-John is 2 years old and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma last year. She needs a vaccine treatment only available in the U.S. for $256,000. Goodman heard about this little girl and decided to put his war medals on Ebay to help pay for her treatment. He has three of them. He said,
“My medals were just sitting in the drawer doing nothing and I thought they could be used for something worthwhile. They were awarded for the sacrifices I made, but I’m happy to forgo that honor if it means helping a little girl in desperate need.”
Goodman, who is a father himself said that once the medals sell, he will wear a childhood cancer awareness ribbon in their place. Goodman served in Afghanistan, Iraq and Northern Ireland.
