Mahalo for all your support
We are so thankful for the generosity of all our friends and family pitching in to our fight! We are blown away with the amount we raised both here on this website and the birthday bash event we had on June 22nd.
I just wanted to say Thank you again for all your support, this journey is no where near the end. Please keep up to date on my blog to find out the latest.
Currently we are wrapping up our treatment with Yervoy, and have the last treatment on August 7th. We will measure the tumors again after that and determine the results.
We would like to thank everyone who's purchased tickets to Marcus' fundraiser birthday bash next Sunday. Advanced ticket sales are now closed but we will accept walk-ins at $40/adult and $20/child age 6-13. We have great food, entertainment and silent auction planned, thanks to an amazing group of friends and family volunteers!Share This Update!

This is Marcus! And I wanted to tell all of you we are so grateful for your generosity. We are amazed at how you continue to give and our fund grows!
We will be starting Yervoy immunotherapy June 5th, and hope to see a response in stopping or shrinking the tumors! I say "We" because I know II could not do this alone, and your support helps our spirits!
Aloha again for all your help!!

You are all giving me such courage and strength for this battle through your messages and support. May 7th I meet with my oncologist's nurse to discuss this new treatment. We hope he will have information for us to head down a treatment path with Yervoy, a medicine for my mestastatic melanoma.

Aloha and Mahalo to all of you for helping us on this journey!
Hi all,Share This Update!
Thanks so much for starting to share this, and especially to those who have begun donating. We cannot imagine how much this will cost over the next year of travel. This trial pays for my scans, tests, and exams related to it, and also the medicines that I will be on. Travel and lodging seems to fall upon us, so thank you for your assistance!!
Please follow my blog to learn about my daily updates.

Thank you for visiting this site, setup by my beautiful wife!
I am happy to report that I feel good, and am ready for this battle! Even though my family is not here by my side, they are in spirit! And I am so lucky to have many friends here in LA supporting me!!
I could not have the strength I do without all of your support!! It lifts my spirits, and gives me courage, Thank you!!
