Helping Matt

I am writing here today because I was notified of a very sad situation and I thought some of you here might be willing or able to help...even if it is just a small donation of $5.

Live Oak Manor Volunteer Fireman, Matthew Cervini, Sr. of Waggaman, Louisiana is losing his two-year battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  He is only 34 years-old and will be leaving behind a wife and three young children.

A small business owner who was affected by the Hurricane Katrina, he could not afford health insurance.  Due to the insurmountable costs of his treatment, his wife has found she will be unable to afford to bury her husband.  "I have no money for burial or a place to lay him to rest," Chanda Cervini has said.

You can learn more about Matt, his family, and his battle with cancer at http://helpingmatt.com/.

Garden of Memories Funeral Home & Cemetery in Metairie, Louisiana has assisted with the casket, place of rest, and FULL funeral services at a reduced cost with an agreement that expenses would be paid within 60 days of services.

Live Oak Manor Volunteer Fire Department has set up a donation account in the name of Matthew Cervini, Sr; Account # 69750.

Cash or check donations may be brought in to Credit Union Service Center, Nationwide.  You can locate one of the over 3,800 Credit Union Service Centers online at http://cuservicecenter.com/

Donations For Family Assistance

With all of the horrors this family has had to face, they are also - due to the cancer - in serious financial crisis.  They have sold a car, had their home foreclosed on, and now Chanda has been laid off from work.   Even after Matt's nightmare ends, it will be a new chapter for wife, Chanda, and their three young children, Alaura, Matthew, & Gia.  Matt's illness struck this young family wholly unprepared for such a devastating medical expense.  With no health insurance, Matt's treatment for the last two years has put an enormous financial burden on Chanda, who was also laid off from her job in March 2009.  Any donations that you send may also help this young mother to begin rebuilding her life.  Please do what you can to help this family!

Thank you so much for any help you may be able to offer, even if it is only in the form of prayers for this young man and his family.

    How long does a copyright last on newspaper articles?. . If a service copies newspapers articles and then posts it in a database on the Internet, is there also a copyright on the Internet content?.
