"The Essence of a Father's Love"

"Matt Patterson has captured the essence of a father's love accompanied by his incredibly poignant description of losing his sweet Emily at a very young age. You will cry tears as he skillfully weaves the emotions of joy anger, frustration and pain with lessons of life that anyone can appreciate. You will be inspired by his ability to grow through his loss and through his faith with a spirit renewed by holding high the legacy of Emily."

I receive such a deep and rewarding fulfillment sharing my journey and my daughter's story. However, what truly fills my heart are the stories I hear from YOU - people from all over the country who have or who are currently walking that very same path.

From Moment One - all I've wanted to do is to help others - fathers, mothers and families. Please know how each and every one of you strengthen and inspire me.

There are so many wonderful organizations and groups whose mission is to help special needs children, little ones battling cancer and parents who have lost children. The sad thing is, these amazing organizations are buried in obscurity.

I want to help.

I also want to meet you.

For this purpose, I have created a program - Speak & Sign - aimed specifically to raise funds for non-profit groups and organizations whose primary mission is to assist families of special needs children, little ones fighting childhood cancer and grieving parents.

The nuts and bolts of this effort is simple:

We connect. We talk about your organization, your thoughts for an event and how I can possibly help. We look at our calendars and set a date.

I fly in - at NO COST. You bring the cause - I bring my story and my books. I'm with you throughout the whole planning process. I can come early and stay late. I'm here to help you, your organization and your event to be a success.

There are no tricks. No gimmicks. A very generous portion of book sale proceeds go to your organization.

It's as simple as that.

Speak & Sign is geared toward:

  • Healthcare Organizations & Support Groups
  • Childhood Cancer Family Support Groups & Organizations
  • Special Needs Children Family Groups & Organizations
  • Grief Organizations & Support Groups
  • Faith-Based Organizations & Support Groups

If I missed a particular group, please don't hesitate to contact me. Or if you're thinking outside the box - let's chat and be creative.
