Help Matt raise money to pay for cancer treatments

Matt's Story

Many of you already know Matt, but for those who don't, he's a very special guy. He's already battled brain cancer once in his life - four years ago - and he came out a strong survivor with his amazing attitude and huge heart completely intact.  In September, he discovered that the cancer had returned. For the past year he's been living in Florida with his long-time girlfriend Emilie, who he recently proposed to (!!), but at the beginning of November they relocated to Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh is where Matt's family lives, but it's also where he will be starting a clinical trial that was just approved by the FDA. He has been hoping to get into this trial for four years, so it's wonderful news!

It's been a scary few months for Matt, Emilie, and their families - from hearing the news of Matt's cancer returning, to evaluating their options, and finally determining a course of action. They are incredibly grateful for the support they've gotten from family and friends, and are so thankful for all the wonderful, caring people in their lives.

How you can help

Cancer trials and treatment come at a great cost. To help Matt, his family, and Emilie offset some of these costs, we are asking for your help. No donation is too small, and we believe that everyone together can help make a difference. Matt truly appreciates any help you are able to give, and is so grateful for the love and support you have shown and continue to show  every day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

NOTE: You do not have to have a PayPal account to donate. You can make a donation with your regular credit card.
