23 May 2018: A member of our military family is in immediate need of our assistance. CW3 Matthew Edmonds, Senior Legal Administrator at 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, TX is currently in serious condition resulting from an unusual heart condition–he is fighting for his life. The Air Force airlifted him and his wife to Memorial Herman Texas Medical Center in Houston. Matt’s close friend, CW4 Ron Prescott, purchased plane tickets for the remainder of his large family so that they could avoid the 11 hour drive across Texas. He will have major surgery as soon as he is stable enough to receive it–however, he is reportedly in good spirits and thankful for love, prayers, and support showed to him and his family.
The Association of Military Legal Administrators set up a fundraiser to reimburse CW4 Prescott, as well as assist family while they are by Matt’s side, supporting him in Houston. Proceeds of this fundraiser will help Matt’s family get a comfortable place to stay close to the hospital, food, and other incidental expenses a large family will incur outside of what the government may provide to his spouse.
This is the most horrific time in Matt’s wife and children’s lives. Let’s come together and do what we do to take care of each other.
