Mat's Road to Recovery

On Saturday, January 20th, 2018 Mathew Grockau suffered a traumatic brain injury while cutting wood with his father in Bellaire. Mathew was air-lifted to Munson Medical Center and is currently in the ICU under intensive care fighting to recover and heal. 
Due to the severity of his injury and his prognosis being still unclear, and his situation tenuous, we ask each and everyone one of you that reads this to please pray for healing during this very difficult time. His family has spent every minute by his side at the hospital since his accident and will continue to do so to provide him with unconditional love and the support he needs to heal.  
At this time we are unaware as to when Mat will be able to return to work or even go home.
Because of the amount of medical care he has already received and will continue to receive as well as a loss of income from hospitalization, we are asking for any aide possible to help pay for his medical bills and living expenses. 
Any help is greatly appreciated as we plan to use these monetary donations for medical bills and his home mortgage.
If you cannot contribute personally, PLEASE SHARE this page on Social Media to spread the word to help out Mathew. 
Mathew truly is a fantastic person. He would give the shirt off his back to anyone that needed it. He is caring and kind and it is our hope that we can help him in his time of need.
