Matthew eventually recovers from the infection but must now face a whole new host of challenges as a quadruple amputee. Due to the fact his remaining stumps are so small there are no guarantees that he will ever be able to use prosthetic limbs. Yet throughout this almost unimaginable ordeal Matthew remains positive and upbeat, happy to be alive and there for his family.
This is the ultimate against all odds story. Matthew and Diane have worked their way through this unbelievable stroke of bad luck and remained intact as a couple and a family. They have not sugar coated how difficult it has been, but have never allowed themselves to be defeated by the challenges faced along the way. You cannot help but be inspired by their love and the power of positive thinking and looking forwards and not back.
