July 25th Update: Fundraising Event August 7th

"The Jefferson State Matt Thomas Rehab Trip." We tried to model this fundraiser with Matt’s favorite pastimes in mind; great friends, rivers, music and a good beer in the State of Jefferson. Dinner, live music from the Sundown Poachers, camping, and whitewater rafting are planned for August 7th and 8th at Paradise Point-- a 20 acre campground on the Lower Klamath River.

Full details can be found at:

Please RSVP by confirming at the event page attached to this site, emailing, sending a facebook message to Kyle Allred, or calling Allegra at 541-261-9369.

Questions can be directed to any of those places as well.

Additionally, if you know anyone who would like to donate food, drinks, raffle items, etc. please use the contact info above! Thanks-
Today was a good mellow one for Matt. He stayed up a little later than usual last night watching a movie and chatting with friends. But he slept well and caught up on his sleep with a mid afternoon siesta. Matt had a positive morning visit from his surgeon- who on his way out said, "We gotta get Matt in a Kayak again." Matt got a break today from the intense therapy yesterday, and says his left arm is almost pain free now and slowly getting stronger. His inhalation strength continues to improve tremendously and he is taking less pain medication.

Matt continues to be overwhelmed by the wonderful support you all have provided. Matt often checks his lap-top computer to read emails and messages from this group ...They mean a great deal and keep em coming!

The hospital food continues to be less than ideal, so home cooked meals and healthy take-out food are wonderful ways to help. (Bring any extra to Mike and Jeanie since they rarely leave Matt's room).

Continue to support and pray for Mike and Jeanie as they have been so faithful and strong. And big props to Beth for all of her support and giving the daily updates for Facebook and the Blog!
