CURRENT NEEDS AS OF RETURNING TO DALLAS

3/01/2019
Matthew is currently doing rehab several times a week and is on a post-treatment protocol. He has been able to receive proton therapy and has successfully finished all 35 treatments. Proton therapy is a much more targeted and safer version of radiation. However, the it still does have its side-effects which, combined with the post-dental surgery swelling and tightness, has resulted in Matthew having Trismus - a condition where the jaw becomes difficult to open without being very painful. We've updated the GoFundMe to reflect Matthew's current and ongoing needs as he continues to fight his cancer. In a few weeks he'll be getting his follow up CT & PET Scans that will tell how active - IF AT ALL - the cancer still is. We are believing for positive results to show no active cancer & appreciate your prayers on his behalf. 

Matthew's needs include many other cancer-related costs as well as basic living expenses. Being unable to run his business he is still in serious financial need as Matthew has had to use credit after spending his life's savings in pursuit of his cure. Past & present expenses continue to add up quickly. These are all things that aren't covered by insurance so any amount of financial support makes a real difference for Matthew right now. 

Please give your most generous donation today.

Previous Update below.... we didn't make the goal :(

$40k. 1 WEEK.
MATTHEW IS WINNING.
HELP HIM BEAT THIS & SHOW OTHERS HOW TO DO THE SAME.


Thanks to our help ,Matthew has become a shining example of what hope there is for cancer patients. His initial fundraising brought him this far.

On November 16th, 2017, Matthew starting getting innovative immunotherapy treatments not offered in the US at CHIPSA Hospital in Tijuana, Mexico. These treatments combine the best of conventional and alternative medicine, with a focus on building up the bodies health and innate immune response. 

See the results for yourself!
Results After Just 3 Weeks!!!


After 3 weeks of cutting-edge professional help at CHIPSA Hospital, Matthew has seen outstanding results. He's run out of money and needs to continue treatments. With your help, we can make sure Matthew makes it. Not only does he deserve our support, his 3 kids (ages 13, 11, & 10) deserve having their amazing father. 

Currently, Matthew needs approximately $40k to cover the additional 3 week outpatient program, treatments, housing, expenses, & the 3 months of take home medication & supplies. If he doesn't raise enough funds in the next few days, Matthew will be forced to go home against the doctors wishes. 

Please give your most generous donation today.

Quick update as I’m over half way through my proton therapy and though I’ve done very well, the side effects are adding up. Today the pain I experienced in my jaw and mouth was like small razor cuts and this even drinking water is an opportunity to gain inner strength!!! That’s who I am and the sort of person I know you are too! These challenges are opportunities to grow. And I’m taking it. Despite the pain and the lock jaw issues, I’ve seen progress and continue to prepare my mind for what god has prepared for me once we im free of the routines and fatigue that this disease has saddled me with. I love you and appreciate your gift of even a dollar. While the lymph nodes and tumors are smaller, Bills are closing in around my neck and I can feel it. Anything helps. Every little bit makes a difference ya’ll!

I want to quickly tell everyone how much I've continued to appreciate your support. I have been doing all of my work, content, shooting, editing, graphics, design, and everything on gofundme, social media, etc... I burnt out and needed a break while also taking a new turn in my battle with cancer. I've taken time away from the internet but I'm about to make a come back you don't want to miss. An awesome video is coming soon to tell all, but for now just now this.... I'm back home in Dallas, my mom moved in to help with physical stuff, and I am on a modified conventional protocol at a hospital here in Dallas. I'm received full-blown chemo and will possibly need radiation (though I am confident my alternative therapies my make this unnecessary). I am still doing alternative therapies as part of my protocol and I thinks its already showing how helpful it is at reducing side-effects from the chemo.... besides being tired, I'm virtually side-effect free!!!!

I'm dedicating my life to inspiring others with story, video, and creative arts. What's to come will shock you (or you know what i am capable of and won't be surprised). Stay tuned.

Listen - I want to take a moment right here to ask you something. Do you truly realize your value and self-worth? Can I tell you - you are more capable than you realize. You are worth more than you realize. The spark of light and life - your consciousness - is the greatest gift you could ever be given. Your life is precious. And you deserve to treat yourself as if what I am saying is TRUE FOR YOU!

I love you all.

I can't wait to share the AMAZING life changing insights I've received while hibernating these last few months. I don't say this lightly - God gave me a vision and I like what I see :)
