THE STORY:

My brother Mathew served the Army with pride during the Afghanistan war. However, the scars of that war were evident from first weeks after his return. He has been on veteran's disability due to his PTSD for the past few years. It has been a daily struggle for him to figure out where he fits into this world and have faith he has a place in it. On Feb 20th, 2016, he became one of the thousands of vets who attempt suicide per year. He is surviving on life support as I write this but in stable condition. The doctors have given us a good prognosis. After major facial reconstruction, Matt should live to fight another day. He will have to face many of his of challenges combined with new ones now. He will have limited vision, possibly limited hearing. He will need a lot of time, rehabilitation and some hope to eat again. He should be able to speak, but how, will depend on a lot of effort and time on his part. My hope with this is not just to raise money for things that Matt will need such as adapted equipment, communication device, medical equipment, service dog, but to also raise hope. Yes, he will have medical bills to pay, housing need, hygiene needs. But, perhaps the thing he will need the most is hope. To realize he is not in this world alone and not the only vet to experience his emotions. He needs to know so many more people than he realized care about him and about his recovery. Every penny raised represents to me that people are worth living for and the world is worth surviving for. Please consider donating not just to support his immediate needs but give him the greatest gift of all, love, hope, and faith. On behalf of his family thank you for your time and concern.
