Member in Need

Matthew F. Crawford is a 51 year-old Conductor and Vice Local Chairman of Local 1216 (Kansas City, Missouri)  that has been through a trying medical situation and needs our help.  A normal bout of pneumonia in November has escalated into severe medical conditions that have kept him in an Intensive Care Unit until this week.  His battles have included blood clots, surgeries, and breathing machines fighting this condition and his future health and ability to work are still uncertain. 

Not only is Matt an upstanding UTU member and officer, he is also a single father that has full custody of his 17 year-old daughter.
