Mi historia

Welcome to our site created to keep you connected on our journey to Matt's miracle. We are glad you are taking the time to visit. Please feel free to sign the guest book to let us know you were here. Don't feel like you have to have something profound to say each time. We are just thankful you care.

Matt was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome March 5, 2008. This is a rare blood disease. The average age of diagnosis is around 70 years old, Matt is 34. Doctors are telling us that our only hope for a cure is for Matt to have a bone marrow transplant. We are currently in search of a donor match.

Our faith is strong and we take comfort in knowing that Matt, and our entire family, is cradled in our Heavenly Father's arms.

For those of you that don't know Matt well I will fill you in. He is just one of those guys that people enjoy being around. He is kind, generous, fun, yet real. Being real is one of the things I have always loved about him. He married his highschool sweetheart ( that's me!) and we have been married for almost 13 years. He is the super Daddy of 4 beautiful children, Dustin (7), Tesa (4), Taylor and Jordyn (16 month old twin girls.) His children think he is the stongest, coolest Daddy ever!

Matt's personality is much like his Grandpa Johnson's. We often refer to them as "rough, tough, cocoa puffs!"

Matt enjoys snowmobiling, watching football, fishing, skiing (both snow and water), coaching his kid's sports, and spending time with family and friends. The reality is that our life is so filled just taking care of our kids that most of the hobbies are "on the shelf" for the time being. That's okay, he wouldn't want it any other way.

Matt is an electrical contractor. He started his own business about 18 months ago and has quickly turned the business into something great. He is responsible and hard working and on most days he enjoys what he does. He has met a lot of wonderful people through his work.

Matt is definitely a family man. If I was to describe Matt in one sentence I would say that he is a dedicated husband, exceptional father, trustworthy friend, and most importantly, child of God.
