My Story

The reasoning behind the creation of this page is to help in the raising of funds for Matthew Ames [he went through what is known as toxic shock - caused by normal flora (in this case Staphylococcus aureus) which infiltrated the blood stream (acts as a toxin), which results in the necrosis and shutting down of certain extremities (in this case both his arms and legs had to be removed to prevent further spreading) it is regaurded as being rare and the survival rate is just as rare]. When I seen his story of fighting through a traumatic event that came at no warning, I admired the strength and courage that he demonstrated. I know that if I was in this situation, I would want someone to help support me. So what I am aiming to do in the month of November (leaving on the 10th), is to push my body (within safe limits) to cover approximately 660kms on my Road pushbike - From my country town Junee (in N.S.W) to Bathurst and back in hope to raise funds for this amazing man. So support me as I find the strength to go this great distance to help an amazing father regain his mobility and the life he once had. It doesn't matter on the amount that is given, just keep in mind: If I was in his situation, I would want some there to help me through this tough time.
