On Sunday, July 5th Matthew was spending time with family and friends when he dove into an unfamiliar pool. As he dove into this pool he hit his head and fractured a vertebrae in his neck losing mobility in his legs. Matt was rushed to upstate hospital where he has had numerous scans, X-rays and a surgery that evening. Currently Matt is in the hospital for at least the next month recovering, in which time he will have numerous scans and possibly more surgeries and it is unknown whether mobility will return to his legs.
Matt is an amazing man who will always do what he can to help family and friends. For those who know Matt I am sure he has helped you in some way, and for those that don't I hope you get the chance to cross paths with this amazing person. Unfortunate things happen to the best of people and I think it's our turn to help him. Please help Matt and his family as he is uninsured and any donation amount will help.
