OMAHA, Nebraska (WOWT) -- A 1-year-old boy is fighting for his life in an Omaha, Nebraska hospital bed.
Doctors say the disease is a flesh-eating bacteria.
Matthew Guevara is a fun-loving active little boy.
His mom, Therahlee Guevara, says he especially loves football and cars.
So when this normally happy little boy began crying in pain last week, Guevara says she knew something was wrong.
"I didn't know where or why, but I knew he was in pain, pain beyond just teething or any type of growing pains for a baby one year old boy," she says.
