Mark, my dear husband and Ethan\'s dad, suffered a serious stroke in January. After 3 weeks in the hospital Ethan and I are fortunate to now have him home with us. Mark\'s brain has been severely injured and healing it will take intensive therapy, rest and a lot of time.
Mark is our family\'s sole provider and the financial burdens until he can return to work are weighing heavily on us both. I manage all of Mark\'s ongoing medical care, as well as take care of 7-year old Ethan and run the details of our household. Mark needs to focus exclusively on his healing until he is able to go back to work and can provide for us again.
It\'s very hard for us to ask for help, but we\'re now facing a situation where we need the support of our friends and family until Mark can get back on track. Any support you can provide will be sincerely appreciated and cheerfully accepted. Thank you! We are so deeply touched by everyone\'s sincere love and concern and will be forever grateful.
