“I don’t regret anything. I’m very happy I’m doing this for them,” Mateo said to WMBF News.
“You can get your car detailed anywhere. Maybe that place does a better job than I do. But it doesn’t have the same cause. It doesn’t have the same heart.”
Haley’s mom took a moment to express her gratitude to Mateo on the Facebook page their family created for Haley called “Her Fight Is Our Fight. Team Haley.”
“Haley’s boyfriend came over and detailed a car here,” Haley’s mom wrote. “I wanted to give a shout out to an absolutely amazing young man, that has been an important part of Haley’s life as well as ours.”
“He is exactly the traits I would have chosen for any partner for my children,” Haley’s mom continued.
“He is donating the proceeds to Haley. I literally cried after he left. Thank you, Mateo.”
