Dr. Sean C. Matteo and Dr. Holly A. Matteo have become active again with their favorite local charity, Hilton Head Heroes, which was founded by Gregg and Lindy Russell, who are very involved in the community. Drs. Sean and Holly Matteo are very active within their church, Saint Gregory The Great, in Bluffton SC. Dr. Sean is a Fourth Degree Knight with the Knights of Columbus, and Dr. Holly plays an active role in a women's group at S.G.G.C.C. called U.P.L.I.F.T ( Unity, Prayer, Love, Inuition, Faith, Transcend).
Our mission at Hilton Head Heroes is to bring families with children between the ages of four and eighteen suffering from life threatening illnesses to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for a resort vacation. Children are referred to our program through doctors, healthcare providers and hospital administrators. The families are housed in the Hilton Head Island HERO house located in Sea Pines Resort. They are given gift certificates to local restaurants, grocery stores as well as island amenities.
