Mark was the sole provider for his family when he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer on October 31, 2011.

With a tumor blocking his colon, a large tumor on his lymph nodes and 20 tumors in his liver. He has lost everything and is trying not to be a burden on his family or his community. It is his hope to get assistance with his medical bills so his family can enjoy the rest of his time with him and not worry about the financial burden of his cancer once he passes. He has been fighting this cancer for four years with only 8% survival past five years.

Can You Help?

His medical bills consist of two main hospital bills and an infusion bill. All three having to do with insurance mishaps, Mark is left to pay them on his own after the "statute of limitations for dispute" had run out when he had assumed that negotiations between the hospital and the insurance company. Mark is currently seeking financial aid from the non-profit arm of the hospital in hopes they will help. In the meantime, it was suggested that we start a fundraiser.

I know some of you have already given in the past for Mark's treatments including supplements, medicine and trying a holistic approach in Tijuana (which did not work). We so appreciate your love and support and it is with humility that we ask to cover only these expenses left over.

His family is in school full time to gain a degree and get in a career to be able to support themselves should something happen to him. Living on $25,000 as a family of four is difficult in California let alone trying to squeeze out funds for paying for cancer treatments. We hope that this funding page will help.
