Matt's cancer therapy and expenses


  Hi, my name is Jess Mullanix,  friend and co-worker of Matthew Besse at Union Pacific Railroad.  Matt is a happy go lucky husband, and father of four wonderful boys.   In 1999, Matt was involved in an accident that left him with a severe back injury from which he never fully recovered. Recently, Matts doctor discovered that he has a very agressive form of cancer called squamous cell carcinoma that was caused from the medication used to treat his back injury. He is painfully waiting for results to see how far the cancer has spread.   As you can imagine, this has been devastating to Matt and his family.  When Matt was telling me about the cancer the thing that seemed to bother him the most was how he would provide for his wife and children while he is fighting to save his life.  This really touched my heart that Matt's first concern was not of himself, but of those that depend on him to put food on the table.  Money was tight before he was diagnosed with cancer, and now his worries are constant.  I am hoping that we can all pull together for the Besse family, and help them with day to day living expenses/medical expenses.  The last thing the Besse's need right now is to worry about how they will get by during Matt's fight. Matt will continue working as long as he is physically able to do so, but will need the financial support starting now until he is back on his feet.  This is important to me to help Matt because he is a great friend, a hard worker, and would do the same thing for someone else in a time of need.  His family will be so thankful for your support and contributions,

God Bless.
