To everyone's surprise he gets lung cancer. Surgery removed two thirds of his right lung. Mark was again in pretty good health, for about eighteen months. Then once again the lung cancer is back. Now worse, can't have more surgery needs what remaining lungs he has.
Mark has insurance but insurance is not paying for his needed chemotherapy medicine. His breathing is very poor. His doctor has submitted three different chemotherapy medications. All have been denied by his insurance.
Mark has always been a fighter, hard worker owning his own Volkswagen repair shop for thirty four years. One of the premiere engine builders in the northwest.
He has continued to fight and work even through his illness.
Mark needs help now!
Mark would love to have a little more time with his family. Wife of thirty six years, four children, and five grandchildren.
Please any help for his cancer medications would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for reading Mark's story.
By his sister Gayle.
