Shepard himself recently hopped on Twitter to give an update on the situation and to thank everybody for their support. Matt said that his son is bruised and concussed but is OK. His wife, on the other hand, suffered injuries that will require multiple surgeries.
Overwhelmed by your sentiments. I could never express just how much it means. My wife is a fighter. She’s had one surgery, another tomorrow and perhaps three more. My son was concussed and bruised, but he’s ok. We are blessed to have so many friends. Thank you very much
