Please spread the word as well. Matt was severely burned. All the burns are either bad 2nd degree to 3rd degree burns with the worst being on his hands and face (3rd degree; entire right side of his face). His neck, chest, both arms and hands were also badly burned. He is looking at a year worth of doctor appointments, surgeries, procedures etc. to treat these burns.
I am doing fund raising in the hopes of helping the family through this time so they can focus on helping Matt rather than worrying about gas money, medical bills etc.
Please visit http://hopeformatt.blogspot.com for more information on how you can help Matt and his family!
Please post a link to his blog anywhere you want to so the word spreads!
If you want to send direct messages to Matt you can post a comment on the blog, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me and I can provide a snail mail address for cards or letters.
Thank you all for your well wishes! I have passed them all on to Matt and his family. Matt says thank you as do his parents.
