Sometimes you prepare for that Friday night football game all week and things go exactly as planned. Sometimes you plan for the game and the other team puts in some unexpected plays, plays that weren’t on film and have their star players return after injury. Well, Team Fouch needs to adjust our game plan that we thought we had figured out in our most precious game, everyday life!
After abnormal results on some blood work a month ago, again last Wednesday, again Sunday in ER, again today and then an x-ray and CT scan, Matt has been told he most likely has stage IV Colon Cancer. This team we are facing is tough, scary and likes to win, just checking stats, outcomes etc. will tell us that. With that being said, our team, Team Fouch will not back down, we will approach each play with love, strength, faith and by listening to God, the almighty coach. Please say some prayers for our family as we prepare for this showdown. This isn’t a game we wanted to play, no one wants this opponent called cancer, but now we will play tough, we will play hard and we will not quit.
So we now acknowledge what we know and that is...“It’s Game Time” and Matt Fouch is out to win!

Anyone that knows Matt, knows that he is not someone that likes to be the center of attention. Matt is also a very humble man that will not ask for hand outs when it is something that he believes that he can do himself. While we all know that he can do this, and he will do this, we setup this page to help make it a little easier for him and his family. We are raising funds and support in a number of ways, Team Fouch Hats, Fouch Strong shirts, A fundraiser at Carolina Lowcountry Kitchen on September 19th, and a silent auction that will be held on that same night.
The Fouch family as a whole, has volunteered, contributed, coached, and donated to so many different organizations, that its our time to show them we support them.
If you are unable to attend, but would like to contribute to the Fouch family, this is another avenue to do so. All funds will go directly to Matt & Jill Fouch and family.
On behalf of Friends and family of Team Fouch, your support means more to them than you can know, and they send their sincerest appreciation.
Matt has his game time and he is already winning.
As a community so do we.....
IT'S GAME TIME!!!
