Mack in the Mac

My name is Justin Frye and I author this GoFundMe campaign to honour my Cousin, Mark "Mack" Stephenson.

Mark is a full-time firefighter with Fort McMurray Fire Dept. He is one of many that is on the ground battling tirelessly in an effort to gain control of a raging forest fire;
and ultimately save what is left of the city of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Mark has a wife and three beautiful children. Despite the fact that he stood in his very driveway and helplessly watched his home burn to the ground, Mark has answered the call to duty and remains on the front line of the battle. This is a true indication of his character and dedication to his community. 

When the fire unexpectedly changed course and endangered his family, Mark put the safety of his loved ones first and evacuated them with only the clothes on their backs. The family has been forced to relocate and will need immediate support for the basic necessities of life. The money raised from the campaign will help offset Mark's immediate needs as he focuses on the needs of the community of Fort McMurray. 

This hero deserves the support of those of us that are lucky enough to not have to face this catastrophy. He stands in the face of danger while in the service of others. Please share this and donate what you can.

Thank you!
