Matt's Fight Against Cancer

My younger brother was diagnosed with stage 4a tonsil cancer just a few weeks ago.  After a whirlwind of doctor appointments and second opinions, Matt has begun his chemo and radiation treatments.  He receives chemo on Mondays and radiation every day.  This is going to be 7 weeks of treatment. It will be like having the most severe strep throat of his life for several weeks.  We hope, but won't know until treatment is over, whether Matt will need surgery or not.  Matt is young, only 33 years old.  He is a father of two precious little girls and has another baby on the way.  Matt needs all the love and support we can give him.  I know we can't take his pain away and fight this fight for him, but we can help with the financial burden of medical expenses and treatment.
