Hello, My name is Colt Sturgeon. I love my friends and for them and their families I'll do anything. Recently a friend and their family lost a husband and a father to lung cancer. Something that happens all too often to good people and is far too painful.
Mr. DeMatteo left behind a wife of 25 years and three wonderful children. The kids he raised will become some of the strongest and kindest people you'll ever meet. His wife will need to be stronger now than ever.
Mrs. DeMatteo would be grateful for help from the community now more than ever. Cutting the household income in half has left the family vulnerable to losing their home, and struggling with all the costs of losing life. A home that should be passed down to her children one day. More than that, they need to pay for the funeral. It's an unfortunate fact that funerals are expensive, profit from death, and grief leaves families vulnerable to falling apart. We aim to change this and provide security until the family can stabilize.
I'll be putting all profits from the prints page linked below along with a portion of my current and future shoots towards this family through the Christmas season. I am only one person and need all the support and love the world is willing to offer the family. Please consider helping support them through a heartbreaking and difficult time in their lives. Anything helps, Even words are appreciated, reach out via the contact page.
We understand people may want to help and understand this awful time in their lives but are unable themselves to donate. If you'd like to offer help in some small way reach out to us via the contact page linked below.
