Matt's Surgery

Matt had a heart attack on May 11th, 2017. He was rushed into surgery because two of the arteries were 100% blocked and could not be opened with the catheter. There were two other arteries that were 80% blocked. He had a heart attack on the back, front, and right side of his heart. He ended up needing a quadruple bypass.

Matt will be off work for an extended period of time, perhaps as long as 3 months as he recovers.

Any funds raised will go to paying the hospital bills. His deductible and annual out-of pocket expenses are very high, and there are other bills for the ambulance. 

Thank you for any help and your generosity.
