Mark Sislo

Hello Facebook family and friends! I have been on hiatus from Facebook, but now am asking for your help. Mark Sislo is the sweetest, most humble, salt of the earth man that you will ever meet. He was diagnosed in 2011 with Mantle cell lymphoma. He and his wife, Sarah (my delightful cousin) have made countless, 280 mile trips to Mayo Clinic for treatments. In 2016, while still receiving treatment for lymphoma, he was diagnosed with Echinococcus Multilocaris, a parasite (Sarah prefers calling it an infection) that is unable to be eliminated from the body. He had a portion of his liver removed, where it was initially found. It is now believed to be in his brain, which a brain biopsy will confirm next week.
Mark and Sarah are both so unassuming and grateful for everything that anyone has already done for them. However, after 6 years I feel the time has come to help them with some of their basic medical costs.
I would like to have enough money to pay for his prescription costs for the next 6 months. So far, they have been able to get the Albendazole, (which hopefully will suppress the "infection"), from Canada, which otherwise costs $20,100/ month, and is not covered by insurance.
They have been blessed to occasionally fly to Rochester, MN from Eagle River, Wisconsin via Wings of Mercy. Many times they drive. I would like to help them with gas and maintenance on their car.

Last but not least, I would really like them to have a break from all of their medical worries. It would be wonderful if there was enough money for them to take a trip to Montana. 

Any financial help is beyond appreciated, please consider giving up your Starbucks Carmel Macchiato for a day! I know they would be grateful for any financial help, but if you are not able to do so at this time, please keep them in your prayers.
