Mark, Melissa and Lucas need us!

On Sunday, February 25th Mark suffered a stroke. He was in the Intensive Care Unit at Middlesex until Friday, March 2nd. He was moved to the regular hospital floor and now to a trauma rehab facility. He is doing much better now that they've gotten his blood pressure and sugars somewhat controlled. There is no facial paralysis or severe brain damage (thank God!) but they still have some major work ahead of them. 

I want to allow Melissa to focus on helping Mark, taking care of Lucas, taking care of HER...without worrying about money as much as possible. Please consider donating! These funds will go towards Mark's continuing medical care and medical bills, as well as to help with day-to-day expenses for their little guy, Lucas. 

Much love and thank you for finding it in your heart to help. Updates will be provided as they become available.
