The Lasky Pediatric Dental Group is committed to community service and they just don’t talk the talk, they really do walk the walk. A few months ago, most of the staff including Dr. Michael, Dr. Jill and their two sons, Jack and David entered the Calabasas Classic 5k-10K Run. Proceeds from this event were to benefit The Talbert Family Foundation, but more importantly they were there to support one of LPDG’s patients, Matthew Alvarez.
Matthew is a friendly, kind and huggable 10-year-old not unlike most of the Lasky’s patients, but unlike most of them, Matthew has been waging a war against leukemia for almost five years. The good news is that Matthew is currently in remission, but since his father had to take time off from work to care for him, his family has been facing severe financial challenges.The Lasky Pediatric Group has watched Matthew and his family wage his battle with courage and dignity and wanted to help and show their support. It was a great day and fun was had by all.
You can read more about Matthew’s plight if you feel moved to donate to help him and his family, there will be a link on his page. In the meantime, meet Matthew (and his grateful Dad – Jose) and hear what they had to say at the event.
