Help for one who served us

Matt “Chicken Little” Haugberg served in the Navy from 2002-2006. He was an E5 when leaving honorably after his four years of service. Matt is currently fighting diabetes which has taken a toll on him, he has had a couple of stays in the hospital in the past year and almost passed away two months ago as he had gotten so sick. He is currently in CMC Main and will be sent to rehab since he has now lost all ability to use his legs, basically learning to walk all over again. Matt was born in South Korea and was adopted by a family from Ohio. He has been a resident of Charlotte for a while now.

Matts biggest need is just his essential living expenses. Rent, utilities and food money. His monthly expenses are about 1000-1100. Right now, he is struggling as he hasn’t been able to work steady in almost eight months since the complications from the diabetes has had him in the hospital for several reasons. We have learned from our visits with him in the hospital that his issue is not the result of doing what’s right. Matt only weighs about 140 lbs. Our understanding is he has a rare case where they think he is between a type one and a type two.
The last time he was in the hospital his sugar levels were around a 600 for a solid week. They have been working to try to get his levels right with his diet and medicines but it seems with the rare form he has they are having trouble getting it under control. He is having one complication after another and needs the minimal  asssitance so he can focus on  his recovery. We are hoping to raise 6000.00 in an effort to coverall his monthly essential expense for the next 6 months. Please join us in helping our friend Matt.
