Matt was such a warrior and a fighter. He was diagnosed with melanoma in 2008 and fought hard until it took his life 4 short years later. Even though he was in pain and going through his own battle, he was always helping others.
It was overwhelming to see all the comments and messages that I received after his death on how he had impacted other lives and made them so much better. He was a true gift from God, and he served him in his full capacity.
It has only been 40 hours since his passing, and I already miss him so much. He was not only my older brother but he was also a dear friend, advocate, and my biggest cheerleader.
