For Matt

Matt suffered an ischemic stroke on July 10, 2017. His cerebellum was affected and he is currently experiencing nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and loss of balance and coordination. We are currently receiving excellent care from Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. As you all know, Matt is self-employed so he does not receive any paid leave. Matt's first concern is getting back to the horses and getting their feet done and paying his bills. My first concern is that Matt heals correctly and doesn't hurt himself again. I am also self-employed and I'm currently trying to keep both businesses running. I'm not someone who is comfortable asking for money or favors, but we are facing some huge medical bills to Anna Jacques Hospital, Atlantic Ambulance Service, Beth Israel Hospital and whichever rehab hospital we are headed to next. If you are not comfortable donating through here, please consider making a small payment directly to one of these companies that we owe money. To everyone who can donate or who has helping with Talia and Plum Grove, or allowed Matt some time to get to their horses feet, we really really appreciate it. Thank you to everyone who has sent kind words of encouragement. It really means a lot to us.
