Friends of Mark Novelli

Our friend, Mark Novelli has cancer.  Mark is a fighter and has faced great challenges in his life before, but nothing like this.  He would never ask for your help, but his friends who love him are asking. 

We want to do whatever we can to help Mark Novelli beat this cancer.  We are urgently asking for your help so he can get whatever medical is treatment needed.

If you live in Niagara Falls, chances are, you know Mark Novelli.  Since accepting sobriety 16 years ago, Mark has made it his life’s work to help others whether they are down on their luck or dealing with alcohol and drug abuse.  Mark has saved lives and helped countless individuals and their families struggling with the same demons he faced and beat. 

He’s also brought joy to many others by supporting and participating in the Western New York music scene, showing and telling anyone who would listen that the best musicians in the world come from right in his backyard.  He is a beacon of joy to all who know him. 

If you want to help Mark in his fight against cancer, please join us as we raise money to help pay for his treatment. 

Anyone who has been sick, or had a family member dealing with serious illness, knows that private insurance doesn’t come close to covering the cost of quality medical care, let alone allow a patient to afford alternative treatments. Mark’s insurance carrier has already denied his doctor’s request for tests vital in planning his treatment regimen.

That is simply unacceptable and our goal is to raise $25,000 so Mark and his family never have to make decisions regarding his care based on cost alone.  Please join us today by supporting Mark and his family today.
