Help Matt Get A Life Saving Tumor Fighting Injection

For ten years our friend Matt Burnsworth has kicked cancer’s ass. Four times Matt was diagnosed with cancer and four times with a warrior’s resolve, the support and prayers of family and friends, and unwavering faith he came out victorious. 

I'll start with the good news. The good news is Matt spoke to a doctor running a trial in Australia. Matt opened up to the doctor, like only he could, and the doctor immediately accepted him for the trial. The doctor stated as soon as Matt can make it from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to Sydney Australia he will begin the treatments.

Matt was accepted because his tumors fell within the range of the ones they can treat by this new method they developed.

The doctor says, they have a 70% success rate at eradicating the mucinous tumors that are caused by the rare cancer (Pseudomyxoma Peritonie - PMP) Matt has been fighting them for the last 10 years.

Basically, they have an advanced radiological machine (CT Scanner), which allows them to pinpoint exactly where tumors are at a level where they don't have to enter the body surgically.

It allows doctors to pinpoint the tumors from outside the body and load up a syringe and inject them with a solution they developed.

Then, the solution dissolves the tumors over a series of time. After the time is up, they bring patients back in and scan them again and make sure the cancerous tumors are dissolved.

Matt has been unable to work and needs an estimated $50,000 for this potential life saving treatment, travel, and temporary housing. Matt has been a smile, positive force, and a rock for his family and friends for years and now we ask for your help to make this trip to Sydney Australia possible.

Matt has touched so many, and our prayers have worked thus far, however now we need your generosity to get Matt to Australia.
