While fighting a grass fire with Troy Township Fire Department in Lexington, Ohio Matt Thomas (29) suffered a heart attack. Matt will be having a quadruple bypass open heart surgery to repair his heart on April 29th, 2015 in Columbus, Ohio.
To complicate issues more, Matt’s wife is pregnant with their second child and is scheduled for a cesarean section on April 30th, 2015.
Matt is a dedicated father and volunteer firefighter and the goal is to help them with their expenses while Matt is recovering from his surgery and unable to work.
