First love began for us at 12 & 13 yr old. Just kids in 8th grade but it was love ! He moved often due to his daddy's Pastorial positions away from our hometown, Ballard County, Kentucky. After high school, poor choices ended our love affair. Many tears & pain filled my heart. There was never real closure for us though. No contact between us for over 25 yrs. THOUGH, We did see each other at our 25th class reunion. My heart did drop as it always did. Reflections of our love overwhelmed me but that " life " was more than over. 2 more yrs a mutual friend calls out to me. Mark said it was time for Lorrinda to know. Mark has a Liver disease & it is bad. He is in rough shape & without a new liver, this will most likely take his life. My heart breaks as tears begin falling down my face & for days come, the tears would not stop. His life MUST turn around & has. He has many health issues. Yes, now Life is more than the air that passes through your lungs. When the liver is not working properly, it depletes many things in our body. Now every second & minute Mark spends w/ his son became more priceless than ever before. Money can not give Mark LIFE. Though, without MONEY Mark can NOT get a full mouth Restoration. His gums & teeth need overhauled to have a healthy gums w/ no infections etc. To qualify & be a liver candidate- there are many health issues one never thinks about or knows doctors classify as a risk or not a viable candidate. Mark is a great man with funny personality & a very companionate person. Who sees and knows his mistakes & has become a new man through this horrible step in his life. He now has to WATCH all the people he loves suffer. His loved ones are watching him suffer through the pain. This liver disease will kill him without a new liver. Qualifications for a new liver transplant is more than 'a qualification list' ; it is changing your life. Being free of things in your life that would possible cause the liver to be rejected. Mark understands that "life has to end for new LIFE to begin. ( a healthy liver). His quality of life is extremely poor due to the damaged liver & complexity of side effects. Mark needs funding to comply with the liver transplant qualification list. One very costly expense is the complete restoration he needs. He needs healthy gums & teeth. This qualification & others like this -must be completed. He has changed his life because he wants to live. The complexity for improving your whole body inside and out is very costly. Mark would never ask for this, but I am. Why you may ask ?? It took a lot for me to move beyond the pain I felt after our relationship ended. Without him, i thought my life ended; i felt like I died.. that 'was and is' minimal to the pain * suffering Mark feels daily. Mark will die without a new liver &/or from the complications from the diseased liver. SMALL OR GREAT, ever amount would be greatly appreciated. He is 46 yrs old he has lived a full life & many poor choices along the way" . Havent we all made mistakes and reegrets? Though, God gave me life and gave me chances I never deserved. Tell his son, Mark does not deserved a 2nd chance. For yrs, I prayed for God to change Mark - for me! GOD is a forgiving God & He Does not put an age limit to His countless blessings or His Miracles. God can use everyone for His honor & glory. Let God use YOU & your donations to show The Real Love of God to Mark, we all fall short of the glory of God. Mark is becoming more depressed as time is passing. HIS greatest obstacles are financially !!! Your donations will give Mark hope & a new smile. His parents are not wealthy. They have taken Mark back into their home. They take Mark to all appointments etc. And have consumed all the expenses up to date. They do not have the funds to accommodate all the financial expenses that are required for this complete mouth restoration. Like I stated, his parents are not wealthy but are very faithful to God & try to live life as God would want them to. I am so blessed to know these amazing people. They have consumed all of Mark's out of pocket expenses, along with all food & travel expenses as well. Help give Mark & his parents a Chance to Breath & smile by providing this path and to It is more than teeth & a healthy mouth - it's closing a gap, creating stepping stones for Mark as they enter the phase of a new liver / A new LIFE !!
