Marks Road to Recovery

Mark has dedicated his life to caring and saving other lives. A Paramedic of 24 years, he gives his all each and every day to do the most good for each and every patient he encounters. He is also an amazing father to 3 wonderful children, Brady, Alexis and Skylar. Anyone who knows Mark knows he would give whatever he can for someone else. 
For those who don’t know, he had an aneurysm rupture on his brain and is currently in ICU in Fairfax. By the grace of God, we were able to find it in just enough time that it didn’t cause any neurological deficits and with the surgery he is expected to make a full recovery! 

Mark will remain in ICU for another day or so then he will spend up to 5 more days in a regular room. His mother, Linda, was able to make it from Myrtle Beach SC to be here with him. We are asking for donations to assist with travel expenses, food and accommodations and any other unexpected expenses such as medical bills. 

We want to thank each and every one of you for all the thoughts and prayers during this extremely difficult time. I will continue to give updates during this process.
