Matthew Jonathon Bennett, 25, a life cut short - Philly.com

Monday, June 27, 2016

Shipley School and was named MVP on the basketball team, but stopped getting taller and quit the team. He went to several schools before graduating from Harriton High School.He majored in business at Lackawanna College, where he was president of the student body, but didn't finish the course work. When word of his death reached the college, president Mark Volk wrote to the Bennett family to say "how utterly shattered we are.""Please know that despite his battle, he was respected and loved by everyone here," Volk wrote. "He made a difference here, and we're so glad we had a chance to get to know him."His mother said that when sober, her son was one of the "most amazing, giving people," doing everything with tremendous energy, but no sooner did he begin to blossom than he sabotaged his own efforts, afraid he wouldn't succeed.Despite that, he produced a CD of his piano-playing. He organized two college fund-raisers. He worked for a time in a family business. He cooked for friends and was open to everyone."He helped so many people, but he could not help himself," she said.

Over the 11 years, the family spent large sums of money on his care.His mother said that by going public with her son's story, she hoped to support other families "that are going through this.""You've got to know your kid," she said. "You've got to get help from experts and listen to your gut. Don't take any one [piece of advice], but put them all together. You cannot save your kid, but you can help with treatment and...
