One of our own +Matt Maulding is currently in ICU at Kennestone Hospital. He had a stroke on Saturday night, and currently has a bleeding stroke in his brain. Doctors are confident that surgery isn't required. Matt is in a lot of pain, and the medicine they are giving him isn't helping too much. His recovery will be a long process and will require a lot of travel costs and insurance deductibles.
+Richard Miles +Eric Murphy and +David Hearn
are reaching out to this community to help raise money for Matt's family. His wife Bonnie is basically living at the hospital with him right now. We want to raise money to cover the everyday costs of travel, food and possibly a nearby hotel for Bonnie to sleep comfortably in.
If anyone has skymiles or points that can be put towards a hotel room, please contact me directly.
If you would like to give money as a gift, follow the link below to Matt's Paypal.
Be sure to mark it as a gift so they don't charge him a fee to receive the money.https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/send-money-online
His paypal account is
You can also send money through Google Wallet if you have it set up, it would go to the same gmail address as his PayPal.
If you prefer to give cash, we can set up a time for Richard, Eric or myself to collect the money and give it to Bonnie.
I just want to add, if it weren't for the game of Ingress, I would have never met Matt and Bonnie. Over the last year, Matt has become one of my best friends. My confidence in this community has never been higher, I have truly seen some awesome friendships formed and an incredible sense of family amongst the members of this community. Lets come together to help this family get through these difficult times. Even if you don't have a lot to give, anything will help.
If you have any questions, message me directly.
