Matt's Biggest Battle #TEAMCAPP

Created July 22, 2017
Matt Cappotelli is a 37 year old former WWE wrestler and Tough Enough 3 Champion, who is battling brain cancer for the second time in his young life. Back in 2006 he was diagnosed with a grade 2 glioma which ended his wrestling career. Most of the tumor was successfully removed in 2007. He was then treated with radiation and two years of chemotherapy.

Unfortunately, just last month, after nearly 10 years of being in remission, his brain tumor returned in a much more aggressive form. In June of 2017 it was discovered that Matt's brain tumor has returned as a grade IV GlioBlastoma Multiforme (GBM), which is the most aggressive and deadliest form of brain cancer.

He and his family are currently seeking out treatment options to help conquer the biggest battle of his life. Their strong faith in God has not wavered and has inspired thousands of people!

This GoFundMe has been created to assist the Cappotelli's in that battle. Let's go #TEAMCAPP!

Hey everyone! So thankful to everyone who is donating! Here is the latest update on Matt's treatment from his wife Lindsay. Please keep sharing and donating! #TEAMCAPP

After getting a second opinion from doctors at MD Anderson, Matt has decided to forego radiation for now and has begun his first dose of oral chemotherapy today. He will take the chemotherapy initially every day for six weeks straight. After that, there will be 23 days of recovery, then it will be 5 days of chemo followed by 23 days of recovery every month. Depending on the financial logistics, we are also considering a new brain cancer treatment device called Optune, which is worn on the head for 18 hours a day. It works by creating low-intensity electric fields, called Tumor Treating Fields, or TTFields. TTFields help slow or stop glioblastoma cancer cells from dividing and may also cause some of them to die.
