On July 29th 2019, Matthew Jelski, a strong and ambitious young man just 24 years of age was taken to the hospital where his fight against cancer had begun. Anyone who knows Matt can agree that he is a well-respected and selfless person with an undeniably charismatic personality. Growing up in a hardworking supportive family with his mother Dorothy, father Marek and younger brother Kevin, it is no surprise hearing of his successful career. He started his career as an electrician and received his Red Seal certification, all while acquiring his real estate license. Recently, Matt had been working hard as a real estate agent and was determined to be a top realtor at Pathway Executives. Suddenly, he is facing the biggest battle of his life and is currently undergoing treatments at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
At this time, the doctors are still trying to locate the exact source of the cancer but have found tumours in his lungs, liver and brain. Matt has already been through cycles of radiation and chemotherapy, has had his left lung collapse and has received two blood transfusions. His case is extremely severe and the prognosis is still undetermined. Everyday, he is fighting for the simplicity of life, in which many people take for granted. Matt's determination has been integral in making his dreams become a reality. With the support of his family, undeniably dedicated group of friends and optimistic outlook on life, we know for a fact that he is going to give every ounce of strength he has to his battle against cancer!
Unfortunately, with his parents working less, bills are increasingly overwhelming for his family during this time. Whether you know Matt or not, just know that he appreciates all of the support he has been receiving and he's a fighter that will not quit! At this time, we're hoping to come together as a community and do the best we can to help him and his family. Anything that can be donated will help alleviate stress and help ease certain worries. Thank you all so much, now let's all come together and do our best to support the one-of-a-kind Matthew Jelski!
