On December 7th, Matthew was driving from Lubbock, Texas heading to Dallas. During his trip he lost control of his vehicle in a ice storm near Bowie, Texas. Matthew received a closed head injury after the truck he was driving rolled over. He was found 15 yards away from his vehicle by the EMT's. He is currently in the ICU at United Regional Health Care hospital in Wichita Falls, TX. He suffered some pretty decent head trauma which required him to be in a medically induced coma for 4 days. He has pulled thru the first hurdle in his recovery, but his road is a long one. As I receive updates from his family, I will post them here.
Matt's parents insurance should cover some of the costs (thankfully they had the foresight to place him on their plan), but It will not cover everything. This is where you come in.
If you have the ability to give a little to help out Matt and his family right now, please do, and please help forward this to other CLB-4 Marines I may have missed. If you donate, please leave a little note for Matt and his family.
