Mark Bowen's Medical Expenses

$5,025 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 45 months
My husband Mark has terminal brain cancer.  It is incurable and despite all treatment options he was given 3 yrs to live.  After 1 1/2 yrs it is growing again in 3 places.  As we travel this journey there are multiple doctors appointments and MRI's.  Even though I work full time and we have medical insurance bills are mounting.  We know that at some point I will have to stay home to take care of him and it will be without pay.   We are attempting to raise money to help pay medical bills and hopefully have some to help pay for care when the time comes.  We thank you in advance .

To all that have followed our journey, Mark went to his heavenly home on July 30th. To each and every one that has donated you are a blessing in a dark cloud. Prayers that God will bless each of you for your kind and generous hearts. Sincerely, Catherine Bowen

Thank you to all that have shared our story or donated to our cause. Mark is now in his final hours and we are praying for peace and comfort as his body is tired. I ask that you please continue to share this page as we now have the expense of flying him back to Mississippi and travel for the family there and back. We know that some may have given while they were hurting themselves and I pray for God's blessing on each and every donation.

Thanks to each and everyone for sharing our page and donating during our need. Mark is near the end now and with me not working to be with him every penny is going to be a blessing. Love to each and everyone of you. There are no words--Catherine

Mark has finally made that turn that we have expected for over 2 yrs. It has been a 5 yr journey and last week we found out that he has myeloma which is a cancer that affects the bone marrow. It is a horrible and painful cancer. Before we could tell him we became very lethargic on Friday and has not really been awake since. He opens his eyes some and his speech is unintelligible. We have changed his pain med to try to relieve the horrible bone pain. I am now having to stay with him as we believe this is the beginning of his last days. I have no PDO time left and am hoping for some donations as financially I can't afford to loose pay to be with him. Not only that but I will have to pay to fly him back home to MS for burial. Please share our page and continue to pray for peace and comfort.

I don’t have a lot, but I hope this can help a little. So sorry for the suffering Mark endured. I know the family and his wife Cathy will be missing Mark as he goes to Heaven to dance with the angels.
