Let's Help Mark Nagasawa! Rehab

On Tuesday, September 12th, Mark Nagasawa was admitted to the hospital after having a heart attack and ischemic PCA stroke on the left side of his brain. 

During the first week at the hospital, Mark had two additional strokes and bleeding in the brain where the first stroke occurred. The second stroke was on the right side of his brain and the third of significant size on the left side of his brain and his speech center.

There have been many ups and downs over the last couple of weeks.  Mark most likely won’t regain his vision in his left eye. The doctors are unclear if he  will regain feeling on the left side, but he should regain motor control. The doctors believe he will  get significantly better but it will be a very long road.

Please consider donating to Mark and Kat Nagasawa as they begin what will be a very long journey to recovery.  Mark will be in rehabilitation live-in and then live-out for months, maybe years, and they most likely will need to find a new place to live with ADA accommodations.

As Kat has been saying to Mark, "You climb a mountain one step at a time and that we will conquer this mountain together, one step at a time."

Let's give them a boost and help them get to the top of this mountain together!
