Mark's Wish for beating CANCER

I would like to introduce to you my big brother, friend and hero, Mark Bankston. My brother has stage 4 liver cancer and has been fighting for 8 months and needs our help.

My family and I will never stop fighting for Mark as we push to beat this cancer and we are driven to do EVERYTHING within our means to make this happen. The doctors gave him 3 to 6 months to live 8 months ago. With that, however, the expenses are quickly spiral to crazy heights.

We have heard of “Go Fund Me” pages where you can ask others for help during trying and difficult times in one’s life. Never did we envision we would be one of those families.

MEDICAID is a great thing and we are thankful that he has it to help. Many of the other things necessary to save Mark's life, however, will not be covered by Medicaid. The treatment for the experimental RSO and its expenses are mounting and quickly becoming out of reach. CHEMO almost killed him and this is no longer an options.

Mark has one last WISH and that is to go to his favorite place on earth, HAWAII with his only daughter and her family that includes his only grandchild, Maeleigh. He feels the end is near and we think this trip will give him the HOPE to go on!

We are asking for your consideration in helping us with a small financial gift of any amount as we work arm in arm with Mark to save his life and make his last or hopefully best WISH come true.
