Matt's Road to Recovery

First, if you're here, thank you!

Our brother, Matt, was involved in a serious accident involving a snowmobile on Friday, March 22. He experienced extensive damage to both his legs that's left him in need of intensive medical care, including multiple surgeries and skin grafting.

But he's strong. He's brave. And he's fighting hard to maintain his strength and resolve. Although he faces a long and painful road to recovery, his health rests in very capable hands.

We are very appreciative of all the prayers, well wishes, and for support from family and friends that have already poured in. And to help Matt and his family (Abbie, Skyler, and Melody) at this difficult time, we ask for the community's continued support in the form of prayers, kind words, and financial assistance.

We are uncertain the full extent of the expenses related to Matt's recovery, but any donations raised will be used towards his hospital and related expenses, rehabilitation costs, and caring for the family due to lost wages. Matt is self-employed and will be out of work for an extended period of time - in what would be a busy season for him - where he'd make the majority of the yearly income for his family. If you are able to help out, any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Please share this message with family and friends. Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated by our family.

We love and stand by Matt, and we know that together we can get him on his feet.

Thank you,
Sarah and Jennifer Schinski
Abbie, Skyler, and Melody
