Matty Takes On Cancer

My cousin Matt's whole world changed a few short weeks ago when he was diagnosed with a grade three astrocytoma brain cancer. He recently underwent a craniotomy where around 95% of the cancer was removed. However, over the next six weeks he will need to undergo radiation five days a week, followed by 12-18 months of chemotherapy to remove the rest. 
I've set up this GoFunde page to take the burden of money off Matty and his wife Laura at this difficult time. All the money raised will go directly towards their current medical bills (which are already in the thousands) and his treatments to come over the next year and a half. 
Matty loves his cats, his records and of course Laura and there's nothing we want to see more than him home, happy and healthy with them.
I'm asking that you donate whatever you can and share this page to help Matt on his road to recovery. It's going to be a long road but "If you try the best you can, the best you can is good enough" Optimistic by Radiohead.
