Matt has battled cancer since he was two years old. He has been homeless much of his adult life. Matt has had over 1,700 surgeries and has been discriminated against, because of the disfigurements these surgeries have caused.
Yet, to those of us who know Matt, he is our Gentle Giant. Despite the pain and agony he lives with daily, as well as the looks, stares and horrible comments, Matt is the most inspirational person you will meet, due to his courageousness and perseverance in the midst of adversity.
Matt now lives with 2 large brain tumors, in addition to many other complications. Let’s enjoy Matt and tell him how much we care while he is still here!
