Matthew Ballard Dirt-Bike Accident

Matthew Ballard (father of 6) was dirt biking in Eagle Mountain when he suddenly fell approximately 75 feet and injured almost everything on his body. He was wearing the appropriate gear to keep his chest, back, and head safe, but is still in critical condition for many reasons. Part of his intestines have been removed due to damage, every limb is either broken or severely damaged, his kidney, liver, and spleen are all damaged, and lastly they aren’t sure about his brain activity. Matthew is beloved by his wife, Stephanie, and his 6 children. The hospital bills are astronomical and with his injuries, they aren’t sure if/when he’ll be able to work again. Please give what you can or spread the word as this family recovers from a horrible accident. #MiracleMatty
