Matt was checked into the hospital on a Tuesday after a CT scan we thought was going to show us an ulcer... the image showed something we were not expecting. After numerous tests over the next 4 days, it was confirmed that Matt has colon cancer which has spread to his liver. The medical staff at Riverside hospital has been wonderful and we are thankful for his oncologist and our "navigator" for making sure Matt's treatment was started so quickly.
April 2017 - Surgery
Matt had unplanned surgery to remove a softball sized mass from his colon that was causing a blockage.
This is a page we'll be using for updates on his condition, how treatment is going, and how we can use support as we navigate through this terrible disease. (Please note that "Tributes" to the CaringBridge site go to the website to help it run and is a default feature of the site, the funds do not go to us... the question came up and we wanted to make sure it was known.) In all things we are trusting God put his medical staff in our lives as well as our wonderful family and friends... we ask for prayers for Matt's complete healing!
Matt passed away at home late September 4th, 2017 at 35 years old. Eternal rest grant him O Lord.
