15On April 06, 2012 our lives were turned upside down. My son Matt age 16, has been plagued by headaches and migraines since the age of 10. It started as a migraine that night and when I checked on him at 9:06 p.m I found my son stiff as a board and in a seizure. That was the night I found out what an AVM was. He had a massive brain bleed, the AVM had ruptured, sending blood throughout his brain. Emergency surgery was performed to relieve the pressure and the next day we were life flighted to OHSU hospital,where we spent the next 5 weeks wondering what was to come. 3 brain surgeries later and what seemed like an eternity, my son was finally waking up. Mentally my son is the same, what has been affected the most is the physical aspect of things. Left side paralysis and he only has use of the right arm for now.
We are asking for donations to go to "Ability" camp in Ontario Canada. They use hyperbaric therapy as well as conductive therapy started in Hungary. They have shown alot of results working with stroke and TBI patients, even after years of not progressing. We are willing to try just about anything at this point!! Thank you all for donating and visiting our page, all the love to you all!

From an old UK skater to a young US skater. You're an outstanding athlete. The way you skate shows that you'll beat this set back, and it seems you have the support of a great family. I hope my small contribution helps speed you back to the pools and parks and the family that care about you. Heal up soon.

Dear Handsome, This is aunty Amina. Please know that we think about you every day and our prayers are always for you. Personally, I can’t wait to hear your smart alec remarks again or the silly smirk on your face when I say, we are going blueberry picking or no hotdog allowed for dinner. Isabel and I went blueberry picking this past Saturday. We talked about you a lot and really wished that you were with us. Albeit, kicking and screaming that it is a lame activity and that you can’t wait to leave. You are stubborn and very resilient; show this AVM what you really are made of. Outsmart it, smart mouth it, smirk at it and run it out of town. Show it that you are not to be messed with and that you’ve got serious skateboarding business to take care of. We love and miss you deeply and I really can hardly wait to see you soon. Get well soon, handsome. Love Aunty Amina
