Miracles Happen
Miracle for Mateo is a 501(c)(3) public charity and nonprofit organization that was established in 2010 to support the Paredes Family when their son, Mateo Sebastian Paredes, came home on hospice care after spending the first four months of his life at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Baby Mateo was born with a  congenital heart defect (CHD) called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) and the added complication of Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAPVR). Baby Mateo lived for nine months, and now his memory lives on as other families are supported and offered financial help through Miracle for Mateo. (Read more about Baby Mateo and Megan Daddario by clicking on The Journey tab above.)
Miracle for Mateo provides financial support for families with dependent children who: have complex congenital heart disease or another life threatening illness, and are struggling through a lengthy hospitalization, are waiting for transplant, or who are living at home on hospice care.
Miracle for Mateo accepts applications monthly and reviews completed applications on the third Tuesday of each month. Miracle for Mateo offers support to families who have a child receiving medical treatment in the Tri-State area (NJ, DE and PA) by providing funds for: hospital cafeteria meals, utility bills, living expenses, gas and travel expenses, and/or a wristband bracelet fundraiser. Please click on the Funding for Families tab above to fill out the application for funding and support online.
At this time, Miracle for Mateo does not provide funding for headstones, funeral costs or electronic devices such as iPads or laptop computers.
