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 may also be mailed to:
Live Oak Manor Volunteer Fire Department
F/B/O Matthew Cervini, Sr.
404 Azalea Drive
Waggaman, LA 70094

The only way the Credit Unions will accept checks is if they are written as the following examples on the "Payable to" line:

Live Oak Manor Volunteer Fire Department FBO Matthew Cervini, Sr.
OR
LOMVFD FBO Matthew Cervini, Sr.

You may also donate via PayPal by visiting http://helpingmatt.com/

Questions or concerns may be addressed to Assistant Fire Chief, Eric Bacon, at asstchief730@aol.com.  The office number of the fire department is (504) 431-7092, and they can be reached via fax at (504) 431-7712.

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.

    In this awesome pattern of things you'll receive a B+ just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually confused everybody was in all the details. As it is said, the devil is in the details... And it couldn't be much more correct at this point. Having said that, permit me inform you just what did do the job. Your article (parts of it) is actually extremely powerful and that is most likely the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, despite the fact that I can see the leaps in reason you come up with, I am definitely not certain of how you appear to unite your ideas which in turn make your conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your position but trust in the future you connect the dots much better.
