CURRENT NEEDS AS OF RETURNING TO DALLAS

3/01/2019
Matthew is currently doing rehab several times a week and is on a post-treatment protocol. He has been able to receive proton therapy and has successfully finished all 35 treatments. Proton therapy is a much more targeted and safer version of radiation. However, the it still does have its side-effects which, combined with the post-dental surgery swelling and tightness, has resulted in Matthew having Trismus - a condition where the jaw becomes difficult to open without being very painful. We've updated the GoFundMe to reflect Matthew's current and ongoing needs as he continues to fight his cancer. In a few weeks he'll be getting his follow up CT & PET Scans that will tell how active - IF AT ALL - the cancer still is. We are believing for positive results to show no active cancer & appreciate your prayers on his behalf. 

Matthew's needs include many other cancer-related costs as well as basic living expenses. Being unable to run his business he is still in serious financial need as Matthew has had to use credit after spending his life's savings in pursuit of his cure. Past & present expenses continue to add up quickly. These are all things that aren't covered by insurance so any amount of financial support makes a real difference for Matthew right now.

$40k. 1 WEEK.
MATTHEW IS WINNING.
HELP HIM BEAT THIS & SHOW OTHERS HOW TO DO THE SAME.


Thanks to our help ,Matthew has become a shining example of what hope there is for cancer patients. His initial fundraising brought him this far.

On November 16th, 2017, Matthew starting getting innovative immunotherapy treatments not offered in the US at CHIPSA Hospital in Tijuana, Mexico. These treatments combine the best of conventional and alternative medicine, with a focus on building up the bodies health and innate immune response. 

See the results for yourself!
Results After Just 3 Weeks!!!


After 3 weeks of cutting-edge professional help at CHIPSA Hospital, Matthew has seen outstanding results. He's run out of money and needs to continue treatments. With your help, we can make sure Matthew makes it. Not only does he deserve our support, his 3 kids (ages 13, 11, & 10) deserve having their amazing father. 

Currently, Matthew needs approximately $40k to cover the additional 3 week outpatient program, treatments, housing, expenses, & the 3 months of take home medication & supplies. If he doesn't raise enough funds in the next few days, Matthew will be forced to go home against the doctors wishes.
