I want to start out by saying that we all know that one guy in our community that is always willing to lend a hand, volunteer, donate and coach whenever possible. He knows more of the youth in our community than any other person I can think of. He is also a very active board member on just about every board in town and honestly I don’t know how he does it. If you're reading this, he has probably coached your child or helped you coach or has helped you in some way or another. He is an amazing friend and father and husband. He makes us laugh and he has a heart of gold. He has always been there for us and now he needs our help.
Mark Stoddard has been really sick since Christmas and has made very little progress in getting better. He was treated for diabetic ketoacidosis and although he has been out of the hospital and has taken baby steps in getting better, they are not enough. Mark has been out of work since Christmas and as you know has a very large family of truly amazing children and his wife Kristina; she has been keeping up with the daily demands of providing for a large family.
We all know it’s hard to keep up with all the demands that come with taking care of a loved one and trying to manage a household. We want to help and they need our help, they would never ask for it nor would want it. They are always concerned about everyone else’s well being. The first thing that comes to their mind is how they can help others. They seriously never think of themselves, but as close friends of the Stoddard’s, they need our help and we are asking that the community pull together and step up to help Mark and his family when they need it most. Anything that you could do to help would be greatly appreciated and I know that Mark and his family would be forever grateful.
