Help Matt's Family

In 2009, Matt Gohring lacerated his left forearm. A nicked artery led to severe nerve damage, and later to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and Dystonia (involuntary, profound, muscle contractions.)
After 18 surgeries, including a nerve stimulator in his back to block pain from his arm, he continues to have severe pain. He also has contracted Shingles, a very painful infection, several times.
Matt finally was accepted by the Mayo Clinic to be evaluated in late Feb. 2016. After numerous tests, and more to come, the Mayo Clinic is suggesting brain surgery to alleviate his debilitating pain.
By his side throughout this terrible time has been his wife, Lexee, and almost 2 year old son, Conrad. Between disability and a minimum wage job, this family is suffering.
This Gofundme request is to give them a little help paying bills.
Any donation you can make will make a difference to Matt, Lexee, and Conrad. Pay it forward and thank you!
