In February 2020, when Matt, a dad of two young kids, was diagnosed with ALS, a type of Motor Neurone Disease (MND), he and his partner, Bianca, committed themselves to Matt’s health with an incredible sense of resilience and hope.
Forming the Lemonade Crew, Matt and his partner Bianca have been fighting this battle while raising awareness and understanding of MND at the same time.
While the couple thought one of the most challenging aspects of this diagnosis was raising the money to purchase his life-supporting equipment and the around-the-clock care, one aspect they didn’t factor in was the increased expenses of powering these machines.
Bill shock became a regular and heart-wrenching experience for Matt and Bianca, with the couple’s power costs increasing as much as $1,000 per quarter, plus their regional location made the couple much more vulnerable to blackouts.
Matt and Bianca were in great need of a more affordable and reliable energy solution. That’s when Solahart Port Macquarie stepped in to help turn this all around and are now set to save the couple thousands each year.
