Matt, a four-year-old boy who is the subject of a New York Times investigation that found the home he shares with his mother has been poorly maintained, needs to be moved.
Matt’s mother, Mary Jane, said her son had been living in a cramped playroom in the basement of their home for two months before the Times’ investigation published in December.
Matt was taken into protective custody by the department of health after his mother noticed he had no toys, was not doing well and had difficulty breathing.
Matt is the second child in the family to be diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer.
His sister, who has a rare form of leukemia, is being treated in the same hospital and her brother is being cared for in a nursing home.
Mary Jane said the house had been in the house for three years before Matt was moved.
She said Matt was allowed to stay at home and play outside with his brothers and sisters, but he didn’t get to go outside.
Matt has been in protective custody since he was three months old, and he has never been allowed to go out with his sisters and siblings, she said.
Matt and his siblings play in the playroom.
Mary Jean, a nurse and Matt’s mother said Matt is in an apartment with a single, single room.
She is concerned that if he is moved to the same home, he will be at risk for pneumonia, tuberculosis or heart disease.
Matt had to be kept inside the house when he was younger because his parents could not afford a house, Mary Jean said.
The two girls were in the living room while Matt was sleeping and when Matt woke up, Mary Ann said she went to the bathroom to change Matt’s diaper.
Mary Ann and Matt did not want to leave the house without Matt because he is a baby.
The house is now owned by a neighbor who is paying for his treatment, Mary Anne said.
Mary Ann said her brother has been at home with his mom for three months and that his health has deteriorated, so she has no way to contact him.
She has tried calling him several times but he has not been in touch.
Mary Anne said she is still paying $2,000 for her son’s care, which she said is beyond her means.
She wants to move Matt, but she can’t afford the move.
She said she would like to keep Matt at home while he is receiving his treatment.
Maryanne and Matt both said they would like the house to be renovated.
The home was previously renovated to house an indoor pool and the family had planned to move in a year ago.
The Times reported that the family of five is the subjects of a federal lawsuit by a group of four families who claim Matt has a genetic disorder called Spondyloarthritis of the Upper Back.
Matt’s sister, a six-year old, also has a condition called Spindyloorthos, which causes his spine to bend and protrude.
Matt was taken to a hospital in September 2015 after he developed pneumonia.
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene told the Times that Matt was diagnosed with Spondelitis, and it said his condition was rare.
The department said the family’s home has been maintained to the standard recommended by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and that it had been properly maintained.
Matt and his sister are in the hospital, but Mary Ann is staying at home because she wants to protect Matt from infection.
The family has not moved from their home in two years, and Mary Ann would like her son to stay there.
MaryAnne said she has asked her son if he would like a new house, and Matt has refused to go.
She would like Matt to move into her home, but is afraid he will need help to get there.
She added that she wants Matt to have a new room and wants Matt’s mom to stay in the home.
