4-year-old boy battling cancer can't start chemotherapy due to recent coronavirus diagnosis

A 4-year-old boy who is battling brain cancer in New York cannot get the chemotherapy he needs because he has tested positive for COVID-19

Jennifer Ferruzzi, of St. James, said she thought her son, Matteo, had a stomach virus when he started feeling nauseous last month. She became more concerned after he developed other symptoms, like abnormal eye movements. The mother rushed her son to Cohen Children’s Hospital in Queens, where doctors diagnosed him with a malignant brain tumor. “I didn’t expect to get this diagnosis,” Ferruzzi told News 12 Long Island. The young boy underwent emergency surgery to relieve the pressure on his brain and was sent home to recover before he could begin chemotherapy.

Matteo later tested positive for the virus as well, which has delayed him getting the life-saving treatment he needs. “It’s such a crazy time for the whole world. We are all in a crisis,” Ferruzzi said. “The best time I can get a good cry in is when I am in the shower.” Ferruzzi is now praying that her son’s next coronavirus test will be negative so he can finally start chemotherapy. The mom is also sending a message to other parents during this difficult time. “If your child is showing symptoms or complaining about something, absolutely get them into their pediatrician right away, and even if it’s nothing, it is better to be safe than sorry.” […]

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
