A Mission for Matt

2017 Mission for Matt

After a very successful event last year, we are happy to announce the 2nd annual "A Mission for Matt" Dinner Dance.

In November of 2013, at the age of 36, my brother Matt, a healthy, energetic teacher and coach, husband, and father of 3, was hospitalized with his 4th case of pneumonia. These multiple pneumonias, we found out 3 days later, were the result of a diagnosis none of us were prepared to hear - multiple myeloma. In December, being the selfless, generous man Matt is, he began a clinical trial in order to help fight this disease, and to help others afflicted with myeloma. This chemotherapy alone could not halt the myeloma from progressing, and Matt endured a stem cell transplant in June of 2015. Today, he continues to battle multiple myeloma with chemo every other week.
