In May of 2022, Mark was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), an aggressive type of blood cancer. Despite many months of treatment including several types of chemotherapy, Mark lost his battle with cancer in Feb of 2023. But the exceptional team at Fred Hutchinson that supported him throughout his cancer journey continues the work to find new and effective treatments for all types of cancers.
Proceeds from the swim will go directly toward Fred Hutchison Cancer Center to fund research and trials that can save lives. Thank you for helping us #MakeWakesToFightCancer.
