Late February of 2012 Mark was diagnosed with stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma Cancer. This is written for our family and friends who have so caringly expressed a desire to know of the current situation. We so appreciate the love and support that has been shown to us and we lovingly empathize with and pray for many of you that have had or are currently going through trials of your own. In love, hope and faith, Mark and Ane

A Big Thanks!

Thank you for all the contributions made to the Providence Cancer Research Center. We were able to present Dr. Urba with a generous gift from the donations made in our behalf. We sincerely appreciate your support!

Speaking at the Creating Hope Luncheon was an awesome experience. After we told our story, Dr. Urba outlined  the current research in immunotherapy and the potential it has for cure. Chris Spielman in a humble and passionate way shared the difficult and life changing experience of his wife's battle with cancer. She lost the fight five years ago, but he has not lost his drive to end this dreaded disease and to help others in their journey.  It was an inspiring event and we felt so fortunate that we were invited to participate.

We will post the videos as soon as they are available.

With appreciation,
Mark & Ane
