Matthew Schmidt's support fund.

The boy in this picture is Matthew Schmidt, he's my little brother. His entire life he has had Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome, a rare brain development disorder which has made him disabled since birth.

Recently he was also Diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Just today (November 9th, 2017) he was hospitalized and looks to be in the hospital for at least another 2 weeks. The disease has spread around his spine and requires immediate medical attention. With our mother being in the hospital with him for these coming 2 weeks and our step Dad only working a minimum wage job we are not going to be able to afford to live under our current financial strain and we need help.

These funds will help us get through these hard times. Matthew's medical state and our current financial situation are extremely stressful and being able to focus on one thing at a time would be a blessing. All we ask is for a little support to weather this storm, or else we are not going to be able to afford rent, or maybe even food.

Our situation is dire and every little bit helps, thank you so much for any donations and please consider getting the word out about us, it means the world to us.
