The Family of Matthew Mertz are uniting to raise money to help with expenses so his Mom can concentrate on being by his side.

Matthew is 29 years old in July of 2010 he was jogging home and was struck by a car. Matt had multiple injuries, he has brain trauma, 2 severe lacerations on his right leg and right arm, broke his neck and back. broke both legs on his right leg they had to put in a rod in the lower calf area he was on life support for quit awhile. We weren't sure if he was going to make it but here it is January of 2011 and he is still with us he hasn't become fully aware of things we only get a moment here and there for only a second at a time. He was just moved to a Nero rehab facility and we hold out hope that some day soon he will come out of it, we have been told it can take a year. He had no health insurance and the lady that hit him had no car insurance. We have been able to acquire medical insurance to cover the main expenses their are many that is don't. Matt's mom works two jobs to make ends meet and don't have the income to cover the extra expenses that are incurring she spends every moment not at work with Matthew. We are trying to raise funds to pay bills for Matt and help her with gas and other expenses so she can remain at his side. This has been a very trying time for the family emotionally and financially. Thank you for anything that you can do.
