Hi everyone, we are a group of friends and co-workers who want to raise money for our friend Mark.  Mark has had to have numerous operations for a foot defect he has had from birth.  Basically he was born with his foot twisted causing him to have to walk on the side/top of his foot his whole life.  It has now come to the point where the best path forward to alleviate the constant pain he has lived with is to amputate his leg just below the knee with the operation happening in the next 6-10 months.  He will be unable to work for an extended period of time (12-18 months) so we want to raise money for him to cover expenses related to medical and the bills of life.  After him and his wife Irene have gone through several years of costly fertility treatments and she is now working two jobs to try and save money to support them through this situation. Mark has one of the best attitudes we have seen and is always quick to compliment someone and brighten their day.  We would love to be able to help them through this stage of their life.  He has no idea we are doing this and we want to surprise him with this gift near the time of the operation.   We appreciate any amount you feel moved to contribute towards him.  Thank you all in advance for your generosity!

Found out that my good buddy Marks surgery will happen in December. His leg is being amputated just below the knee as he has had over a dozen surgeries to try and fix his foot and ankle. A couple friends started s GoFundMe page to try and help him and his wife Irene with expenses while he will be unable to for for 10-18 months depending on how it heals. If anyone is able to contribute anything towards it we very much appreciate the help. Mark is a fantastic guy with one of the best attitudes I’ve ever seen and we would like to do something nice for him. Thanks to everyone for your consideration and support!
