Matt's Medical Fund(ish)

Hi all - I'm Matt's partners in crime for the last 12 years.

In the last year Matt was diagnosed with a neurological disorder, they've diagnosed it as Multifocal Motor Neuropathy with Conduction Block. Basically his body is attacking his own muscles, he currently has minimal muscles in his arms & legs mainly. Which makes it hard for him to do the things we take for granted everyday. For example picking up a cup, typing, getting up, putting on clothes etc. I'm now Matt's full-time carer as a result.

He's lost all his independence when he was pretty much our bread winner. He was always a hard worker and a devoted family man, there wasn't anything he wouldn't do for us. Unfortunately now, at 29, he's perminately disabled - no treatment will change that. The current treatment he is on is slowing the rate of progression (we think) but it's still gradually getting worse. Matt's future is questionable. 

We're currently in financial struggle as it's taking quite a while just to get any assistance from the government. We barely get enough to scrap by and that's cutting everything down to the bare minimum. We've had to borrow money off friends for various bills as a result. I'm usually a proud person, I generally don't ever ask for money unless I have to. Unfortunately it's come to the stage where I need to ask for help. Especially now they're putting our rental home of 5 years up for sale, we need to look for other premises soon. 

Basically any money that is donated will just be going straight to bills, moving, food. Pretty much anything to keep us going, so we can put all our love and effort into making Matt content and worry free. He feels like he's responsible for everything that's happened, which is obviously not the case. 

If you do decide to donate, we will be forever grateful. Hopefully make me sleep a little better at night and cry a little less.
