My son’s prosthetic leg

As many of you know, my son Matthew is an amputee. It’s been about a year and a half since this occurred. He is in dire need of a new prosthetic. He has adopted a wonderful attitude during a time of great adversity, He is quite active in the gym and on the golf course. He is an inspiration to myself as well as many others.  I tell him he does more now than he did when he had 2 good legs!

His current prosthetic is not suitable for someone his size and his level of activity. It has caused him nerve damage that led to 2 additional surgeries. Unfortunately, his insurance will not pay for what he needs. He’s had his physician and physical therapist explain why he needs a new prosthetic, to no avail. He has no option but to pay out of pocket. He is finally healthy enough after 14 surgeries to resume a normal life of working and being active. The prosthetic is the last step for him.

We are all very humbled by the outpouring of support you have shown him during this difficult time. Matthew is extremely grateful. So here we are, doing a fundraiser. Any contribution helps. During this difficult time in the world, it is perfectly understandable if donating is not an option at this time. A prayer will be just as appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. God bless.
