Help Locals: Father loses battle to rare cancer

A few months ago, 614NOW shared the story of a local family battling a rare form of cancer. It is with sadness that we report the husband, Matt Hogue, has lost his battle.

Brittany and Matt cared for their “miracle baby” while Matt underwent chemotherapy to combat his aggressive Cholangiocarcinoma. They looked to the Columbus community to help support them on their search for a trial with immunotherapy when chemo was not enough. 

On Monday, Matt passed away.

An event to support the Hogues and pay tribute to Matt’s loving, selfless character will be held at Land-Grant Brewing Company tomorrow from 4-7pm. Appetizers will be provided and 15 percent of all drink sales will go directly to the Hogues. Bring your cash for raffle prizes as well as a 50/50 drawing.

RSVP here.
