About this Event

You might know Kristi as the lead singer for The Walton Stout Band or from when Kristi and her mom Cheryl, performed together as “The Andersons;” or maybe you know Kristi from the many benefits she has personally supported. However you know Kristi, one thing is for sure, you know Kristi as a friend who has always been there to help those in need.

Now, Kristi is in need of your help!

On October 30, 2018, Kristi suffered a Brain Hemorrhage immediately followed by a Massive Stroke, otherwise known as a Massive Hemorrhagic Stroke. Only 15% of all strokes are hemorrhagic, but they are responsible for approximately 40% of all stroke deaths (stroke.org) each year.

The hemorrhage and stroke occurred on the left hemisphere of Kristi’s brain, which paralyzed the right side of her body rendering her effectively immobile. Kristi is also suffering from Severe Aphasia, as the brain lobes that control her speech and language functions were also directly affected from the Massive Hemorrhagic Stroke.

Recently, Kristi was accepted to participate in an exclusive, three-week long Aphasia Therapy at the world-renowned Craig Hospital in Denver, CO. The Craig Hospital specializes in neuro-rehabilitation and their Aphasia therapy, CHAT, is one of only two Aphasia programs offered west of the Mississippi.

Though Kristi has medical insurance, due to the severity of Kristi’s condition, the insurance company has been very selective of the treatments that they have covered throughout her long recovery.

This Aphasia therapy program is NOT covered by insurance but is critical to her recovery from this devastating event.

Studies have shown that the peak levels of recovery occur within the first year following a Massive Hemorrhagic Stroke, which is why it is so important for Kristi to participate in the CHAT Aphasia therapy program at the Craig Hospital as soon as possible.

Our financial goal from the benefit is to cover 100% of the expenses associated with Kristi’s participation in the CHAT Aphasia therapy program in Denver. The estimated cost of the expenses, including the therapy program, lodging, food and travel exceed $30,000.

Kristi has selflessly helped so many people in her life and has never asked for anything in return. Please help us show Kristi how much we love and support her during her own time of need.

Kristi Mattison Benefit

June 30, 2019

3:00pm - 9:00pm

Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine

Cost: Only $50.00 p/p (18 & older)

Food & refreshments provided

Music provided by: The Walton Stout Band

Auctions * 50/50 Raffle $10.00 p/ticket* Fun!

100% of proceeds to benefit Kristi Mattison’s ongoing medical expenses.

The music stage will never be the same without Kristi’s beautiful smile and angelic voice. It is not known how far her recovery path will be or how long it will take, but without her participation in this program, it is certain to be less effective. The progress she has achieved since her tragic event is a testament to her inner strength and determination, but the CHAT Aphasia Therapy program will greatly improve the quality and depth of her recovery; and without your assistance, she may not realize that full potential.
