Hello mr. Grant I am a public school teacher and I have been denied my legitimate pain prescription which is written by a board-certified fellowship-trained anesthesiologist pain physician monthly I never exceed my Monthly prescription but I need it in order to teach every day and have any quality quality-of-life without my Oxycontin 30 milligrams that I have been on for 12 years after 3 back surgeries a spine tumor and 3 knee surgeries including a total knee replacement. Without my medication I cannot get off the couch and go out at all I have no quality of life and would have to turn to street drugs or suicide. With my medication I have been able to work full time for many years exercise daily at the gym go out dancing with my lover and life partner and spend quality time with my five children. Please call me I have had desperate moments and have had no recourse being unable to get my medication and resorting to Desperate Measures. Please call me on my cell as I do not frequently respond to my email because of excessive spam 305 213 3256 I would really appreciate your help and the ability to make this terrible situation resolve thank you

I'm an investigative reporter at WESH 2 News in Orlando, Fla.

WESH 2 News Investigates reporter Matt Grant joined WESH 2 News in June 2013.

Before joining WESH 2 News, Matt worked as a reporter for WFTX-TV in Fort Myers and KRCG-TV in Columbia, Missouri. His hard-hitting investigations uncovered corruption and wrongdoing and sparked change across southwest Florida. Key exposés include: “sub-standard” care and questionable surveillance practices at a Florida Veterans Administration Hospital; suspect use of more than a million dollars of taxpayer “stimulus money”; and secret pay raises and dubious practices at a local college. The latter investigation spanned two years and led to the firing of the school’s president and vice-president.

Matt’s previous station described him as a “champion for taxpayers,” and his reporting has earned him two Emmys and an Edward R. Murrow award.

Matt got his start in broadcast journalism as an assignment desk editor for News 12 The Bronx. He holds a Master of Science in Journalism from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Marist College. He’s also a proud member of Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) and Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), a non-profit organization dedicated to investigative journalism.

Matt has been a proud volunteer and supporter of the Special Olympics. When he’s not digging for the next story, he enjoys reading, going to Florida’s beautiful beaches and traveling
