Matthew Cole Scott's Journey to Recovery

Donation protected
Our beloved friend Matt Scott was involved in a bad motorcycle accident the morning of July 1st 2022. He was transported from the scene of the accident to the closest hospital in order to give life-saving help. From there he was flown via helicopter to the best trauma hospital in the area shortly after.
He has a list of injuries, was put on life support, and put into an induced coma. It's going to be a long recovery journey for him, and he will need help in that journey. Matt has touched a lot of lives, and I'm asking anyone who knows Matt to help him on his journey to recovery. The money raised here will be used to help with his medical costs (when I sit in his ICU room and see all the machines that he is hooked up to, I can't fathom the price tag on it) he will need several surgeries over time. We also want to help cover his monthly bills that will still be due. We are still missing some items that were taken from him after the accident. Missing still are his wallet, backpack, and leather jacket. So please share this far and wide, and help with whatever money you'd like to donate.
A couple of notes; make sure you unclick the tip box when donating. That money does not go to Matt. GofundMe charges a processing fee. So if you truly want Matt to get the amount you are donating, pledge about 3% over. And while trying to stay true to Matt, who hates corporate greed and bad tracking websites, I did a very limited research, and it always came back to GoFundMe as the best platform for this, so here we are.
For health updates and well wishes, please go to the Facebook group: Love For Matt

May Matt Scott proceed to a full recovery so we can enjoy his smile, wisdom and spirit for years to come
Thank you,

Jove Shapiro
