Lynn Streeter presents Matthew Ceelen with a check from MT Sunrise Rotary to support his Eagle Scout project of building two bat houses to be placed in the Mequon Nature Preserve.

Matt was diagnosed with bone cancer just weeks shy of his 15th birthday.  In medical terms it is a high grade sclerosing subtype of osteosarcoma.  Approximately 450 children in North America are diagnosed with osteosarcoma each year.  He is 1 of approximately 4 children who will be diagnosed with his subtype of osteosarcoma in 2017. 

A GoFundMe site has been set-up to cover some of the out-of-pocket expenses not covered by insurance. The site goal of $40,000 represents less than 20% of anticipated non-covered costs. As of this article, 203 people have donated $34,560.
