Five years ago Mat, was diagnosed with a genetic kidney disease. At the age of 22 his kidney function slowly started to decline. Nine months ago, at the age of 27, Mat unfortunately had to start dialysis. Currently, he attends 3 times a week for 5 hours at a time.

Fortunately though, through the power of Social Media, Mat has had a wonderful, giving and selfless person come forward to help, Jes. She pursued being a donor for Mat and after months of testing and doctors appointments, we can finally say WE HAVE A MATCH! Jes will be donating her kidney to Mat on February 18, 2013.

After the surgery, Mat will have to live in Vancouver for 2 months to make sure he is on the right track for his recovery. As this is not his home town, he will have to rent a place to live during this time.

We are hoping to fund raise money for both Mat and Jes for costs associated with travel and pricey accommodations.

Help Mat on his road to a normal and healthy life again. Any donation is much appreciated and so helpful. Thank you:)
