Matthew Ames an amazing bloke28 Oct 2013
Matthew Ames was like any other man, husband, father, until he developed a sore throat last year. Matthew though it was the ‘man flu'. It was far more serious than that. He had developed toxic shock from an infection of Streptococcus A.
After he was put in an induced coma he had all four of his limbs surgically removed and he was given a 1 per cent to live.
Matthew survived and 15 months later he is fighting to get on with life with a incredible spirit of survival along with being the best husband and father.
The determination that Matthew shows in rehab is amazing. The love his wife, Diane, shows is soooooo special.
