jumping and skydiving, and in the capturing
of the ignition of that fuel on film.

in a Paragliding
accident. He remains in serious condition in the SICU ward of Denver

has recently momentarily opened his eyes and began recognizing his family
and close friends. His injuries go far beyond broken bones, and his
recovery will be long, intense, and painful both physically as well
As many of us know,
even with insurance, even a minor health issue can be financially devastating
to the rest of your life. The primary cause being the inability to work.
This doesn't only affect Matt. His mother and father are always by his
side, sacrificing whatever need be to be with their son when he needs

reported by Nic and Alex:
has been moved to Craig
Hospital in Englewood, CO for his rehab. His head injuries affect
lobe, both temporal
lobes, and the right hemisphere of the occipital
lobe. Other than his head trauma, his reported injuries are a tib/fib
fracture to his right leg in addition to shattering off pieces of the
talus bone of his right ankle when the tibia slammed into it. He also
fractured his calcaneus (heel) bone of his left foot. His surgery on
his left heel last week
was a success, and he is expected in surgery for his right leg and ankle
on Tuesday. His recovery is/will be very painful, and is expected to
keep him in the hospital until "at least early May."
had been doing three hours a day of physical, ocuupational and speech
therapies before the surgery, and is likely to begin his PT again soon.
He's definitely come out of his post traumatic amnesia and is able to
remember things a ton better than he was doing. For example, the nurse
came in and he was able to tell her where he was and even the date.
are still being discouraged for now to prevent a relapse of what they've
accomplished so far. Hopefully within about a week or two after the
next surgery people can come back by to see him!
the encouragement he has received to this point has been fantastic.
Please keep it coming and let Matt and his family know that
you got their back.
