Mark has been battling brain tumors since 2012. His second reoccurrence was 4/2016 Glioblastoma (stage 4) Third reoccurrence was  8/17, just days before his daughter Kendal started kindergarten. He started Chemo in Sept, did not work, then started an intense 2 weeks of radiation. At the end of October he started a clinical trial with infusion, which they drive 3.5 hrs every 2 wks for. In November Mark started having memory loss, confusion, anger/delusion, left side weakness, which affected his mobility. His wife, Stephanie, was already working 2 jobs to make ends meet, but had to take off from work December 1 because it was unsafe to leave him home alone. (They have been denied home health care.) 2 weeks ago, Mark went into the ICU because of uncontrollable vomiting. Sadly, they found a 4th tumor. He is now headed back to Moffitt in Tampa for 2 weeks of radiation. Amazingly, his wife Stephanie has helped others along the way, spreading awareness of this awful disease & starting the first GBM support group in her area.

You can imagine the amount of debt this family has had to collect with the frequent trips back and forth to Tampa for treatment and loss of wages from both parents. Through everything this family has endured, they still amaze me with their strength! 

ANY AMOUNT, you can spare will be so helpful and if you cant spare a donation, PLEASE SHARE this campaign and say a prayer for their family. Thank you.

Mark just made it to his 35th birthday We are So Blessed! He has exceeded the odds in April it will be 3 yrs since he was diag with Glioblastoma but almost 7 yrs total fighting Brain Cancer. I have Never witnessed such courage & strength! Things have not been easy. He is now in a wheelchair, has a feeding tube (which insurance Does Not pay for his formula) $250.00 month & incontient. I just recently returned to work & can only wotk part time .We as a team do not focus on the negative. We travel to Moffitt twice a month Treating Marks 5th Reoccurance with Infused Chemo & Avastin . I havent asked for funding because i dont have time to stop & ask for help for our own situation when so many in our communtiy are also in the same boat. I put as much as i can on credit cards & call it a day. I have received several messages to update our go Fund Me
