"Matt" Goralka left during a disagreement with his parents, who contacted police due to the sensitivity to medical danger after blood thinning treatments aimed to combat a blood clot in Goralka's right arm.   

Lincoln Park Now did not ask any further questions regarding the incident to preserve the Goralka family's privacy.   

A future Huskie, Goralka is a celebrated local athlete signed to Northern Illinois University's tennis team to begin this forthcoming fall 2010 semester.
