Give Matt a Helping 'Hand'

Matthew Coleman was recently the victim of a serious accident to his right hand.  Matthew lost or nearly severed all four of his fingers in a table saw accident.  Matthew, in true form, drove himself to the hospital where he was flown to Denver, CO to have extensive hand surgery.  After a successful surgery, three of four fingers were reattached with limited mobility.  

Anyone who knows Matthew is aware his hands are his life.  Matthew spends most of his time embrassing the love of his life Rebecca.  Matthew lifts up little Hailee.  His hands feel the kicks of his son Ryker in Rebecca's belly.  When Matt is not at home with his growing family he is deep in the woods hunting big game or waist deep in the river 'throwing flies'; Matthew's hands are an invaluable tool.  

When Matthew isn't enjoying the fruits of nature he is using his hands to support his family.  Matt is masterful with brass and the results are works of art.  Matt, a jack-of-all-trades, improves the households of the Cody, WY community with wood, metal, or PVC plastics.  

Matthew, or 'shorty', may be a man of short stature but those who know him will admit he has heart bigger than most.  Matthew is more than 8 hours away from home in a hospital bed recovering from his unfortunate accident.  Rebecca, his unbending support, is by his side.  Unbeknownst to Matthew and Rebecca, we are asking for help.  Matthew will accrue substantial medical bills while losing the ability to work for some time.   

We are asking for any support to help this young family.  If you cannot donate, please share Matt's story.  On behalf of Matt, Rebecca, Hailee, and Ryker: Thank you.
