My name is Julie and I am Matts older sister and Maddox's aunt. As many of you know Maddox recently underwent a stem cell transplant and has had some complications which have put him back in the hospital. Sam has had to continue working so they can keep their insurance while Matt has had to take a leave from work again so that someone is always at the hospital with him. Unfortunately Matt's fmla has already run out. I can tell you that I know more than anyone just how hard it is to raise a family from a hospital room. I too had a stem cell transplant 4 years ago and know that it takes an army of help both emotionally and financially. The last thing you should have to worry about when your child is sick in the hospital is how you are going to pay your bills. I would like to help relieve some of the burden by helping them with this go fund me page. No amount is to small and anything is greatly appreciated.
A recent update today from Matt is that ,he is doing well Still no foods. Still has a little air in his colon but can't be sure till an MRI Is done. His weight is going back up from not being able to eat and the steroids. He does have some gvhd (graph versus host) on his skin, but is being controlled with steroid cream. Maddox is a true fighter and is in good spitits and still has a smile on his little face.
