Matt and Eimear

The gift of time

More time. That’s all Matt Gardner and his wife, Eimear, could hope for.

Diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer just days before his wedding, we knew we couldn’t save Matt’s life.

But thanks to the philanthropic support of our community, we could give Matt and Eimear the most precious gift of all – more time together.

When you give to Swedish, you make innovative, compassionate health care – and stories like Matt and Eimear’s – possible.
