As you may have heard, everyone’s favourite DJ, son, father, friend, brother, uncle, and partner, Mat Andrew (Mat the Alien) suffered a terrible mountain bike crash on October 2nd and was airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital for an emergency surgery on his vertebrae and spinal cord.
While it's still very early on and new information continues to come in daily, we know that Mat is currently paralyzed from the chest down. This road to recovery will be a long and emotional battle for Mat. While we all know he is not one to shy away from a challenge, this is going to be the biggest fight of his life.
We’ve started this GoFundMe to help Mat with the costs associated with his recovery. Times are difficult for a lot of us right now, but Mat needs his family, friends and fans more then ever to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Mat’s brain appears to be undamaged and we expect him to have lots to say once his breathing tube is removed in ICU. With your support and love, here’s hoping one of the first things he gets to say is, “Really good, thank you.”
We will post updates on Mat’s recovery as often as we can and want to sincerely thank you all for your well wishes and support.
The Andrew Family
