Please read the words below from Veronica Barrett, Mark’s wife:

      On 9/11/18 our lives changed forever. My husband was diagnosed with colon cancer after going in for a routine colonoscopy. It was an emergency call from his body asking for help.  A week later we found out that the cancer had also spread to his liver and lungs.        

      My husband is not only a Marine, he is fighter. He is the strongest man that I have ever known, he is our hero. He is the father of our two beautiful children, he is my best friend, and he is the love of my life. I know that this is going to be a long and difficult war to fight, but we are going to win this battle, with God’s love, faith and hope, and lots of prayer.

      Of course the tough reality of the financial burden is real. High deductibles, co-pays, and expensive premiums are adding up quickly. The strong side-effects of chemotherapy and future surgeries make it impossible to even get out of bed most days, let alone try to run a business for the sole income earner for the family.

      We are asking for your help and support to get us through this difficult time. We truly appreciate all of your love!

I just wanted to update you on my progress so far. I have just had my 4th chemo session. My cancer marker has dropped from 400 to 123 which means the chemo is working. Doctors plan to re-scan me after the 6th treatment to see if I am a candidate for liver resection surgery. This is critical for me, please keep me and my family in your prayers!

Thank you again for your kindness and generosity. Your donation really does help, this is a very expensive process. God bless.
