Get to Know Matt Cardoza
"Today marks the 6th anniversary of my second brain surgery and stroke. I am very grateful today for what I have. I would not trade it for anything. I am most grateful to my family and friends and everyone in my life who has stuck close by my side.
This year I completed my B.S. in Computer Science and a 100 mile bike ride among other challenges. After my hospital stays the first year or so I slept so much of the day and was on so many medications I worked my way up to 270 lbs today I have worked down to about 210.
Every day is a chance for me to be in better shape than the day prior. On Sunday, January 25, 2009 I received an early birthday present: a recumbent bike. Little did I know six years later I would be able to say: "Since January 1st 2014 I have ridden roughly 3,216 miles and climbed 84,934 ft (next year I hope to do more)
Matt Cardoza, has been a blessing to our Veterans. We are so grateful tor the day he came to our Center. Thank you Matt for all the wonderful work you have done!
