Family and friends of Mark Gilbert are looking to raise money to help with a never-ending battle with Vasculitis. Please help!

My husband was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease - a form of Vasculitis called Wegener's Granulomatosis - in 1996. Our son at that time was 18 months old. He has never known his Dad to be well. My husband was 36 years old. We had been married only 4 years.

Although we now have Medicare for his expenses, we still have bills outstanding from before this, as well as the 20% and more that his Medicare does not cover. We get Social Security Disability, but that does not cover all of our monthly expenses. Often we live on noodle and spaghetti for weeks until our SSD arrives.

What I am asking for is but a small drop in the bucket. We owe many doctors, hospitals, anesthesaeologists, labs, therapists, etc. - upwards of one million dollars or more. In fact, this barely covers the $26,000 I owe for my skin cancer treatment!
