Today’s journal entry is dedicated to “Mark the Shark” and his family as now, more than ever, this family needs strength. Mark’s mom is asking for prayers this morning. she writes…
Last night I heard Mark whisper in my ear, “I can’t breathe Mommy”. Through the night his breathing became more and more labored. This morning our hospice nurse put him on morphine every hour to keep him as comfortable as possible. We don’t have much time left. Mark is at home, surrounded by love and family. He is sleeping and comfortable. Please pray for him.
The Hugs for Brady Fund is taking donations in Mark’s honor to find a cure for pediatric cancer. The donations will be used for research at the Cancer Institute of NJ. If you wish to donate please call [removed]. On behalf of all of the families dealing with pediatric cancer, the Well’s family says thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please pray for Mark and his family.
“8 Years Later—Still No Cure for Pediatric Cancer” is a series of posts revisiting the journal kept by Sherrie and Michael Wells during the cancer diagnosis and treatment of their son, Brady Michael. Hopefully these entires will provide an understanding of the journey families face when dealing with these horrific diseases and of the important work the Hugs for Brady Foundation does.
