Clean bill of health

My blood work came back and my “tumor markers” are below normal, which means I’ve “responded well to treatment”.

Now I never have to talk about cancer again. It’ll be like I never had it… Yeah right! I’m thinking of telling people that my portacath scar is a gunshot wound. (see picture). Gizoogle that!

I survived an IED strike in Afghanistan, but do they call me “Matt the IED survivor”? NOOO!

I’m working on a comedy routine. My friend Bill Reidmann who roasted me at Ass Aid wants me to go do 3 minutes of stand up in Phoenix with him. All my good material is cancer related. I guess I just have to embrace the suck… haha.4L1A3800_1sm


  1. Embracing the suck. I am wishing the best for you. If anyone can beat it, it’d be you.

  2. Marlies Single says:

    So happy for you!

  3. Great job Matt putting up with treatment, it ain’t fun for sure. As long as we are breathing, life f’n rocks. Hope to see more of the world through your eyes.

  4. I couldn’t be happier for you Matt! Congrats on being butt cancer free!
    If you’re ever in so-cal… I’ll take you to get a drink to celebrate!
    Lots of Love,
