Dear Friends & Family:

With Amy and Mark's permission, I have started this fundraiser with two purposes in mind.  The first being rather obvious, to help cover any and all financial needs the family may have during this time of medical crisis.   The second is an emotional need that many of you share with me - just trying to find an immediate way to reach out and show them love, encouragement and support.  

Matt suffered a stroke on the morning of Sunday, October 21st.  He was immediately transported by a critical care team from UVM Medical Center to Dartmouth-Hitchcock.  Surgery was performed to help regain blood flow to his brain.  As of 6:30am, this Monday morning, Matt is still unable to use his right side.  He remains primarily under sedation with the aid of a ventilator.  He will undergo an MRI this morning in hopes to gain further information on his continued critical situation. 

Matt is a champion. He is strong, brave, and of remarkable character.  Please help show the Yandows the support you are currently feeling in your hearts.

Hello everyone.. I speak for Mark when I say this.. we can not thank you all enough . Your kindness and genorsity has been so amazing. We are so grateful for each and every one of you . Matt is home now and is continuing out patient therapy for PT , OT and speech . Also we are making sure on the days he doesn’t have as much to add more work for him as this will help him get better faster. We joined a gym to get him back in the pool to continue his pool therapy. Insurance we are also greatful for but they only can cover so much . We have added a larger shower with grab bars as well as added more grab bars throughout our down stairs . All of this we have been able to do for Matt because of you all. Also I have no idea when I will be able to return to work so thanks to you I don’t have to worry about that right now as you all have given me paid time to spend with my children when they need me most. Again mark and I can’t thank you all enough and please know we will pay it forward whenever we can . God bless you all . Much love the Yandow’s. PS: We wanted to wish you all very Merry Christmas, Happy holidays and a very Happy New Year!

Matt has been transferred back to the Burlington area for rehabilitation therapy. His feeding tube was removed, he is able to eat whatever he chooses and is making remarkable progress with speech and movement. Thank you all so much for the support, kind words, and compassion towards the family.

Thank you all so very much for the outpouring of love and support! Matt and family will be transferred back to UVM Med Center this coming week. He will continue to be hospitalized but is now in stable enough condition to do so near his home. ❤️
