A little boy named Ronan Mateer was the grateful recipient of thousands of dollars in proceeds from the Halloween Aid Haunted House in his hometown of Wisconsin.
Bonita Wolosek has been running the Halloween Aid event for eight years now, and so far has raised over $80,000 for families like the Mateer’s, whose son Ronan suffers from cancer.
Ronan was very thankful to receive the money from the fundraiser, but when he heard about a baby named Charlie who was also suffering from cancer, he knew he couldn’t keep all the money himself. Ronan decided to generously share the money with three-month-old Charlie Rein, who suffers from ALK + Histiocytosis.
“When Bonita first called me and told me there was another little boy who had cancer and wanted to donate part of his proceeds from his fundraiser to Charlie, I just started crying, because that’s just so nice,” Charlie’s mom, Bethany Rein told WSAW.
When the Mateer’s and the Rein’s finally met, they immediately understood what each other was going through. There was even in a point in the video you are about to see below and the mother’s finished each other’s sentences. “We’re kindred spirits, we already know what the other is going through,” said Bethany Rein, Charlie’s mom. “We’re able to help out a family in the same way we’ve been helped,” said Korinna Dahlke, Ronan’s mom.
Korinna’s last word of advice to the Rein’s was “Keep thinking positively and it’s going to come true. Yeah, don’t worry about anything else, worry about Charlie. Everything else is background noise,” said Korinna Dahlke to Bethany Rein.
