After suffering and dealing with excruciating pain for about a year, Matt was diagnosed with an extremely rare cancer called Ewing's Sarcoma (bone cancer) in September 2019. The diagnosis of the long undetected and large tumor immediately took him out of work due to his weakened femur and the inability to walk without severe pain. Treatment has been agressive and intense, having six day inpatient chemotherapy sessions every three weeks, then followed by surgical removal of the affected femur along with a hip replacement, and then going through more chemo both in and outpatient. All told treatment span is at least a year and a half. Matt and his wife Srobain have two adorable boys, Myles (5) and Marcus (3) who just adore their daddy. Family has been a great help with the boys while Srobain continues to work and Matt is receiving or recovering from treatment. Doctors are pleased how everything has been going and believe this disease can be cured after treatment is completed. Matt continues to fight, keeping great spirits and a full heart. Please consider a shirt purchase to help, or a donation to his online fundraiser.
