In loving memory of Matthew Gordon Stupey

Matthew Gordon Stupey

Was my greatest friend, partner, and supporter through my education and in starting my practice.  Always a giver of love, and whatever he could pass on to others, be it food, hugs, or a nod and hello to passersby.  Matthew was lost to complications associated with type 1 diabetes on March 8th, 2014. In his absence, I carry his strength and devotion to helping others who deal with this condition, as well as related complications and other amputees in need.  If you or anyone you know with demonstrated financial need has type 1 diabetes or has experienced an amputation, please contact us at Blessed Thistle to set up an appointment for reduced cost care.


A lover of food, the most amazing chef I have ever known, fed me almost daily through the last 2 years of my education.  One of his soups is featured in Food & Wine magazine:  Red Lentil Soup.  Matthew fed the city of Portland well, but loved even larger.  He will greatly be missed.

The spirit we carry on...
