On November 27, 2015 Mark was diagnosed with Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. The Doctors planned for 6 rounds of chemotherapy, and a stem cell transplant, however after 3 rounds he was told he was in full remission, but decided to continue on with the full course of treatment. April 29th while undergoing testing to receive the stem cell transplant, it was discovered that Mark has a tumor on his voicebox. This is a separate type of cancer, not related to the Lymphoma. He will be having a total Laryngectomy on Tuesday, May 24th. They will also be removing lymph nodes in his neck to make sure the cancer has not spread further. After recovery from surgery the plan is to continue with the stem cell transplant. Please continue to pray for Mark during this difficult time.
