Mathew Deals trees stand fall please help

On October 30th at around 4:30pm my nephew Mat was making his way up his tree stand for an evening hunt before dark like he has done many times in the past. As he got to the top of the stand he slipped causing him to fall approximately 20-30ft to the ground seriously injuring himself. The fall resulted in a traumatic injury breaking his back shattering L1 - L5 vertebrae. Mat is 29 years old and just recently proposed to his girlfriend Alyssa who is expecting their first child in January 2021. If you know Mat personally you know he’s a great kid with a big heart always willing to help a friend in need or even a total stranger. He’s always willing to lend a hand when needed and now with his own unexpected medical bills piling up and a baby on the way in a few months. Due to the severity of his injury which includes a hospital stay with extensive rehabilitation he has no way to work and provide for his growing family. He needs our help no contribution is to small please consider donating even the smallest amount if you can. If you can’t donate please share his story and help get the word out to someone who can donate in his time of need. Thank you
