Snyder Elementary School Library Mural, Las Vegas, 2018Only 60 years old and at the peak of health, Mark was felled by a near-fatal stroke in October of 2018.
Mark is working hard to recover from his stroke, but he faces enormous health-related expenses in the coming years:
extensive speech and physical therapy to recover his speech and function of his right arm and leg (Mark is right handed.) He faces enormous costs to make his home livable with his current disabilities: installation of entry ramps, grab bars and medical equipment. Most likely some in-home care will be required. Household and living expenses must be covered during Mark’s recovery. As a professional artist and muralist, Mark’s income and livelihood depends on his ability to design and paint the large-scale artwork for which he is well known.
The ultimate goal of this fundraiser is to enable Mark to return to work as an artist by funding his therapy and living expenses while he recovers.
