Six months shy of his college graduation, however, his faith was tested when he became paralyzed in his left hand. Diagnosed with brain cancer, Matthew was told he might never walk, let alone play piano again. Fighting for his life, he began writing music in his head, which eventually became 'Scribblings', a critically-acclaimed and award-winning solo piano album inspired by his experiences surviving and recovering from his illness.
Ten years, three albums and scores of concerts later, Matthew has beaten the odds and now lives out the dream he had as a boy of performing his music and sharing his story with audiences around the world.
In 2004, Matthew founded Steps For Living, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises awareness for cancer survivorship through music and the performing arts.
