Hi, friends! We've started a Caring Bridge to keep friends and family up to date on Matt as he undergoes chemotherapy. If you're new, a bit of background: Matt was diagnosed with testicular cancer in July 2020. He had two surgeries and missed almost four months of work to complete treatment. Shockingly, a few months later in January 2021, he was diagnosed with a separate thyroid cancer resulting in two more surgeries and radiation. Both Matt and Laura believed he was out of the woods and were excited to be facing both their wedding and the birth of their little boy without the looming threat of cancer for the first time in a year and a half.
In recent months, Matt and Laura learned that his cancer has spread. He has stage lllc metastatic testicular cancer in his liver and abdomen. He was advised to begin an aggressive chemotherapy regimen immediately, beginning March 21st. We'll try to provide updates as frequently as possible and are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support from friends and family.
