Come party with my family and friends today from 3-8 @rubaclub in Philadelphia!
Our friend @yo_maria put together this amazing fundraiser event for The Matt’s. Steve Matt was diagnosed with ALS last year. He is only 42. ALS is not a new thing for Steve, his father also had it and died in his 30’s from the disease. About 10% of ALS patients have a genetic variant of the disease in which a gene mutation is responsible for the disease. Steve has this genetic form, and if he remains healthy enough will be eligible for special studies and research in Boston which will not only help him, but other families dealing with this gene mutation. These trips will not be paid for by insurance and can become very costly. Also, Steve’s medical needs are becoming more costly including a wheel chair upgrade and a stairlift for their house. This fundraiser is to help the Matt’s with the financial, physical and emotional burden this disease has put on their family.
My family has donated some items for the event up for auction including:
1. @ange_261 large framed photo
2. @mariaqualtieri gift certificate for a photoshoot
3. iheartautopsy gift basket including $50 gift card, every enamel pin including limited edition pins that are sold out, and 3 iheartautopsy / @asylumartwork items including a goat brain slice necklace, a human tooth dome, and a human bone necklace mixed with real gold flakes!
Come support The Matt’s and ALS today!!!! So many other items will be there including donations from awesome Philly restaurants, artists, stores and tattoo artists!
Thanks so much to everyone contributing!!! @ihatestevemattforever @kpmatt @yo_maria
