Matt Lipsey's Medical Bills

Matt has been diagnosed with CIDP and after myriad Dr's visits he is now starting treatment. If you don't know Matt, first off, my condolences. He is one of the funniest people you will ever meet, he is humble, he is fast, he is about as friendly as it gets and lifts up everyone around him. He is always on the go, biking to work, running before or after, hitting the gym and then looking up some local esoteric history or wild mushrrom fact to fill you in on. He'll tell you stories that will crack your ribs, record and direct on-the-fly iphone arrangements of hysterical summit hijinx and your acting will do just fine. 
CIPD: Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is a slowly developing autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the myelin that insulates and protects your body's nerves. The exact cause is not known. Common symptoms are gradual weakness or sensation changes in the arms or legs. Matt has had to move home temporarily because of this.
Recent update from Matt:Thanks ya’ll! Much love! I’m hoping to bounce like a rubber ball. Initial reaction to prednisone is strong, so good indicator I’ll be ok. Progress every day. Once I get ivIG it should scrape rust off the wagon, then I’ll start to paint over it.
Stairs are the toughest part, but I’m getting on a spin bike now and gaining fingers and toes back with fine nerve manipulation like drawing and scrunching a towel with my feet.
Thank you!
