Just Breathe For Matt
Raising money for Matt Gulledge
Matt Gulledge has battled with a lung condition known as Primary Cillary Dyskenesia along with bronchiectasis for thirty-two years. It is a rare disease that mimics cystic fibrosis. Matt was forced to resign from his teaching job in Lake Village, AR four months ago due to his declining health. Matt also has an eleven year old son. Recently he was put on the waiting list for a double lung transplant at Baylor Medical in Dallas, Texas. When the transplant committee met and reviewed Matt's medical history they placed him in the "top priority" category, which means as soon as the organs come available he will have the operation. Matt's lung capacity is currently at 22%. We are raising money to help with his medical expenses and to help with his road to recovery after he has the transplant. He will spend 14 weeks in the hospital after the transplant
I would like to thank each and everyone of you guys that have been so kind to contribute to the "Just Breathe" cause. Your generous contributions will help greatly when it comes time for my transplant and during the long road of rehabilitation after the operation. With all my heart, I would like to thank you for your contributions, anyone who has purchased a "Just Breath" t-shirt or hoodie, and anyone who has kept me in their thoughts and prayers. This means so very much to me and my family. We are going through a hard time right now but by the grace of God and through your continued prayers and support I feel like there is nothing that I can't overcome.
P.S. A special thanks to Kristaleen Gulledge for all her hard work on organizing the fundraiser and Jennifer Martin for her part in making the "Just Breathe" fundraiser possible. I love you girls!
