Meet our Hero

Payton Molnar-Matz

Other than a few ear infections and a cold here and there, Payton was a happy, healthy girl. Shortly after her 5th birthday in December 2009, she started to complain of foot pain. Her complaints were sporadic, so Payton's mom Christi figured she needed new shoes. They helped a little, but there were still complaints. Christi knew in her gut something wasn't right with Payton, but couldn't figure out what it could be. Christi was just about to call the pediatrician when a fall at school changed everything. It wasn't a big fall, just dropping off the jungle gym, but it sent Payton to the ground screaming and grabbing her feet unable to get up right away.

Payton went to the pediatrician, but nothing was found, so she was referred to a Podiatrist. In the three weeks between the Pediatrician appointment and Podiatrist appointment her pain spread to also include her hips and hands. Christi decided to do some research on the internet, and every search ended on Juvenile Arthritis. At the time, Payton had five of the seven signs of arthritis.

Wish to be a Superhero

Wish to be a Superhero

Loma Linda, CA – When Michael was in the hospital, he discovered his superhero powers. The nurses all called him the man of steel. And little by little, he realized that with enough imagination, he could run super-fast and fly – could even smile through chemotherapy and flex his arms after a round of radiation. He wasn’t just Michael, a boy with a daredevil streak and a surgical scar on his belly. He was Flying Michael… the Batman! For Michael, he knew his wish was to become a superhero and save the city.

On his wish day, Michael received a call from the mayor of the city. The city needed help: a villain named CatScan had taken hostages and demanded a $5 million ransom. Michael dutifully heeded the call and went to solve the crime. A city official brought out Michael’s new superhero outfit: Blue boots, a blue cap, a cape and a gray muscle shirt with his Flying Michael Batman logo – FMB – in white letters over a yellow ribbon. And then city leaders presented Michael with his magic shield.
