Matt Ordelt was found Sunday, August 25, 2013 with multiple head injuries, unresponsive, and nearly dead from an accidental overdose. He is making daily progress, but it is slow. He is facing weeks of hospitalization and dialysis and we just don't know yet if he will fully recover.

So here’s the very real, very serious situation: Matt is in ICU at Kennestone Hospital. He is now off of life support and hanging on, but not without some major hurdles to overcome. He has some good days and some bad ones; he is in complete renal failure (that means his kidneys have crapped out), has damage to his liver, and is on medication to sustain his blood pressure (he is off of this as of 8/30). He has had improvement in his lung function and is demonstrating responsiveness after being removed from his induced coma. The long term damage to his systemic functions, including neurological, are yet to be determined.

Matt’s family, Kirk Tindel, and I (Liz Bogard) have created this page to reach out to all of those that know Matt. Regardless of whether you love him or hate him, he needs your help. He’s the smartest dumbass you’ll ever know whose only luck is bad, and who, most importantly, has always helped us out when we needed it most. Even when we didn’t want or ask for it.

He does not have insurance.

The medical bills are starting to come in and there are many weeks of hospitalization ahead, not to mention the long term treatments and rehabilitation he will have to endure. He also will be out of work for sometime and assistance with monthly bills will needed for the short to mid term.

Please, help now by sharing this page and donating what you can. Matt has been (often against our will) an associate, a cohort, and a friend. And in the words of Paula Largen “the Atlanta community has a long standing history of rallying together, showing what a strong sense of community and love remains.” Even if you don't know him, please pay this forward by helping.
