War hero selling medals to help girl with cancer

A former British Royal Marine is selling his war medals to help cover the cost of a little girl’s cancer treatment. Lottie Woods-John was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma last year when she was just two-years-old and she needs an innovative vaccine treatment only available in the U.S. that costs $256,000.

Veteran Matthew Goodman has never met the toddler, but when he read about her rare cancer, he decided to list his three service medals on eBay. Goodman, a father himself, says when the medals sell, he’ll wear a childhood cancer awareness ribbon in their place.

“My medals were just sitting in the drawer doing nothing and I thought they could be used for something worthwhile,” he says. “They were awarded for the sacrifices I made, but I’m happy to forgo that honor if it means helping a little girl in desperate need.”

If you would like to donate to Lottie's treatment you can do that here.
