Nissy Nassif interview
13-year-old Matty was born with Cerebral Palsy to parents Monette and Ronaldo Saraza. Matty will be bound to a wheelchair for the rest of his life and can’t talk. His condition has left his parents with hospital bills in excess of $55,000. Day-to-day life is a costly struggle for this family with additional expenses such as a wheelchair, nappies and the fact that Monette needs to be his full time caretaker.
Wiping Tears has since paid off Matty’s hospital bills in agreement with Broome Hospital worth $18,000, paid the remainder of the payments for the family’s car which has been specially modified to accommodate for Matty’s disability, along with Coles vouchers to assist with daily expenses. Nissy and the Wiping Tears team have also agreed to pay for the new wheelchair that Matty will be getting after the practitioner has measured and quoted.
