Matt DiRito is everything I ever hoped to be in a grownup.  Handsome, talented, musical, gifted, artistic, brave, and so human.  Matt is the bass player for the massively popular Pop Evil, a rock band with a unique sound, focus, and voice.  

Matt also runs the charity, Star Treatments.  Star Treatments helps critically ill children get transportation support they need to get to hospitals and critical care facilities.  Matt saw the need and took the shot.  It's an amazing charity and I can't wait for you to hear the entire story, so dig in and enjoy.
