Mark Tirre Prayer and Medical Fund


Mark was no different than any other hardworking, 48-year-old husband and father. When he started having excruciating headaches, his family didn’t know what it could be, and neither did the doctors. Finally, his wife thought they had the diagnosis — but it wasn’t a good one. His doctor discovered two golf ball-sized masses behind his right eye, and his wife was told that they were Meningioma brain tumors. They caused his right eye to bulge and damaged his vision, to the point that he could no longer drive. While waiting for his upcoming brain surgery, the pain in Mark’s head became too much to bear and his family rushed him to the emergency room in Los Angeles, where he was already scheduled for Brain Surgery August 8th.  He was admitted into the hospital that night. It was here that he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma (Bone Cancer), with 90 percent of his bone marrow covered in cancer cells. This caused his kidneys to fail, and was the cause of the tumor in his head.

He had been in the hospital for 19 days, and had started chemotherapy for the bone cancer and dialysis three days a week for his kidneys. He is still awaiting brain surgery in Los Angeles. His family is beyond devastated. This wonderful and selfless man has dedicated his life to caring and providing for his children, his family. He has been their rock and they can do no less than to be with him through this difficult time.

So many of you have reached out, offering prayers and help. They can’t thank you enough. The road ahead for Mark is long, and very expensive as well the constant care and traveling from Las Vegas to Los Angeles for hopsital services such as his brain surgery.Supporting him with whatever you can give would help relieve some of the financial burden of his medical expenses, as well as brain surgery, and the loss of income from his job. With financial assistance, they can focus on helping Mark get as healthy as he can be, and strong enough to battle this incurable, but treatable, disease.

Thank you from the bottom of theirn hearts for your love, generosity, prayers, and support.
