Matt has broken his neck and is determined to walk again. Help fund the treatment he needs.
During Matt and the kid’s annual visit at our place, a day of catching up with an old friend suddenly took a tragic turn and has significantly changed our friend’s life.
Over the past 14 weeks we have watched Matt battle to regain the ability to walk again after suffering a serious spinal injury in our pool. While Matt has made steady progress he has a long way to go.
Anyone who knows Matt will know it’s not in his nature to give up, or put his hand out for help. He is focussed on a full recovery, getting back to a normal life and back to his teaching career.
With Matt’s determination and grit we know he will get there. But like it or not, Matt does need our help on this road to recovery.
He is wanting to use a spinal rehab treatment called Neurophysics, which has had amazing results helping spinal injuries.
Most people haven't heard of Neurophysics but the results are outstanding. Here is 60 Minutes covering one mans results. Copy and paste this link.
Follow Matt’s journey with us and help support in a way that will mean so much. Regular updates will be added in the updates section.

Matt is 39 years old and has two beautiful children, Monty (6) and Zara (10). They were on holiday when he dived into the pool and tragically broke his neck.
He was flown to Middlemore Hospital where he underwent surgery to straighten his neck. Unfortunately, that surgery was unsuccessful and six weeks later another plate was added.
However, since this second surgery he has been gaining greater sensation in his legs and can now wriggle his toes.
Matt has been recovering in Auckland Spinal Unit and is continuing to make excellent progress but is eager to start the next step of his recovery.
Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Matt Hall.
