A Go Fund Me account exists for Hicksville teacher Matt Canty and his family. For more information, click the image below.
This morning 7/14 the Cantys' house was struck by lightning and caught fire causing them to lose everything. Thankfully, a neighbor saw the fire and was able to help get Michelle, her husband, their 2 year old son and dog out just in time. Michelle is 8 months pregnant, and her and unborn baby girl were cleared by the hospital and thankfully are ok. They ran out of the house with only the clothes on their back. We are looking for any thing to help them get through this tough time, especially with a newborn coming into the world very soon. Carter is a 2 year old boy who just lost all of his brand new toys from his 2nd birthday from this past month. Michelle is a dedicated cheerleading coach for LI cheer as well as a dance instructor at MFDUSA. She is a very active member in the community in which she used to coach JV cheer for Centereach High school and Comsewogue High School. Matt is also very active in the community. He’s a high school teacher in Hicksville, coached football and boys lacrosse at the high school, coaches the high school gymnastics team for Hicksville High School, Harborfields High schools, and works at Towers gymnastics in the summer. We greatly appreciate all of the support!
