Help Pay Out of Pocket Expenses for Matt

Friends and Family, thank you for everything you've done for Matt, his family, and I since his accident. Your prayers and offers of help have made all the difference to us during this time.

If you are feeling like you can't be there in person, but still want to help somehow, we have set up a way to donate funds through this site to help offset future out-of-pocket expenses. Anything helps, and is appreciated beyond imagining.


We've also set up a Meal Train account if you are close by and want to support him with your cooking skills or transportation. Please check out Matt's profile at http://www.mealtrain.com/premium/train/view/?id=eJT5J%2BZNfJA%3D Please know that right now, you'd be cooking for me while I am at the hospital (and I'm not eating much these days), but in the future he'll be able to eat something beyond the liquid diet he's on right now.


He's been through three surgeries to repair broken bones in his face, neck, and pelvis, and will be in the hospital recovering for weeks to come. There is a broken collarbone and many broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken jaw and nose, too, that they did not operate on, but that will need just as much time. He can't put any weight on his left leg after breaking his left hip, and with a broken collar bone, crutches aren't an option. He'll be in a wheelchair while the bones heal. Physical therapy for the multiple fractures will be primary, but so will be speech therapy after breaking his jaw and cheek bone.


Our primary concern is getting him well enough to leave ICU and after that into a recovery and rehabilitation ward.


Thank you for your love, generosity, and concern for Matt during this time. I can't say it enough! Thank you!
