Matt Woodbury Liver Donation

Matt Woodbury recently went through a major surgery, whereas he donated 80% of his liver to save the life of his Mom!   Matt prepped for over 6 months to make this happen after it was determined he would be a suitable match. In order to do this he went on a special, calorie reduced diet and avoided certain foods and drinks to make his liver and his body as healthy as possible. As this was major surgery Matt has taken an extended leave of absence from work.  His recovery time is undetermined at this time but likely in the 3 to 4 month range. We can report that Matt and his Mom are recovering at home at this time and all appears to be going well. Matt will hopefully be able to return to work in Mid-September and start with some light duties until he fully recovered.  We have decided to start a Go-Fund-Me page for Matt as he still has expenses to look after with his young family while he is in his recovery period.  We are appealing to freinds, co-workers and aquaintainces that know Matt and his family.  Quite an accomplishment and selfless act so any donation you can make will be appreciated.  Thank You
