Getting my life back together for my family
Organized by: Madison Millham
I am setting this fundraiser up for someone important to me..... Chris Matthews, has struggled all his life, finally for once things were going great for him and his family..... until December 17th 2014, he was working as a repair man for a very well known roofing company, until one blizzardy, raining day, he slipped off a 10' roof falling straight down on his feet causing them to break and jolting his back..... he was able to receive workers compensation for his feet but had to fight to get it for his back..... he had to leave his wife and kids in Regina, Saskatchewan and seek help from physicians in Alberta, meanwhile his wife was dealing with stage 4 precancerous cervical cancer. So you could say their lives were an absolute mess..... finally after almost a yr things were going great for Chris and his family, until workers comp decided that chris was able to go back to work. Chris can barely move, he can't stand for long periods of time and is able to barely climb 4 steps of a ladder. He now has ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) which causes him to be absolutely terrified of heights. Chris is a framer and a roofer and has always loved it.... now due to his ptsd and injuries his doctor says he will never be able to do that line of work.... as wcb has now suspended his payments, he has contacted an advocate, this has been a 3 month process and was told no less then 45 days for a decision.... him and his family are struggling horribly to survive..... I am asking if anyone could be helpful and help this family out... anything will help......
