Help Matt’s Stroke Recovery

Hi everyone❤️

as many of you know my dad Matt Hancock suffered a massive stroke April of last year at the age of 59. Putting him in ICU for two weeks and effecting his right arm and leg and severely impairing his speech. Since then, my dad has come a long way thanks to intensive therapy in Bakersfield five days a week for the last year. However, still has difficulty with his right hand being paralyzed, he’s able walk with a brace and cane and his speech is still highly impaired. Matt has recently hit a plateaue with his ability to make much more progress in his recovery with traditional physical therapy. Everyday Matt struggles with ordinary things we take for granted, like walking, talking, getting dressed, showering, brushing his teeth, and eating. My parents and I have decided to pursue alternative treatments to help further aid my dad’s healing process with Dr. Deol -Regenerative Medicine, Holistic Wellness and Naturopathic Specialist at the Anti-aging and Wellness Center located in Bakersfield as well as Stem Cell Therapy from a referred Institute recommended by Dr. Deol located in Mexico. Stem Cell Treatments can be very costly, it’s $20k each treatment. Because of the severity of my father’s stroke, Dr. Deol has recommend Matt has two Stem Cell treatments. Due to the Neuro Rehab moving out of network on my dads care plan for medical coverage, my parents have over a $60,000 pending medical bill they may have to pay making it difficult to cover the treatments for my father. Matt started playing drums at the age of 4 years old, playing up until his stroke a little over a year ago. Music has been the beat of his heart and soul his entire life, and misses playing drums very much. I know it’s a very difficult time financially for many, if there’s anything you can do to help please donate so my dad Matt can receive the treatments he needs to have a chance at improving his quality of life and return to doing the things he loves❤️

Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this and for all your support❤️
