My Background

I have spent 26 years of my adult career working in various areas of the healthcare industry, among them positions in clinical laboratory and surgical pathology, and various patient care areas including hospice care.  I am a trained Surgical Pathology Assistant.

For the last 17 years I have worked in the business side of the pharmaceutical and healthcare recruiting industries in the west and southeastern U.S..

I am also a Volunteer State Policy liaison with the National Patient Advocate Foundation, a national non-profit organization providing the patient voice in improving access to, and reimbursement for, high-quality healthcare through regulatory and legislative reform at the state and federal levels.  NPAF is a companion organization to Patient Advocate Foundation, which provides professional case management services to individuals facing barriers to healthcare access for chronic and disabling disease, medical debt crisis and employment-related issues at no cost.

I am the married father of two grown children.

    Mark you are going through a tough time in your life and what’s inspirational about you is your positive outlook and your caring ways in providing people around the world with valuable first-hand information about this type of CA. I feel a kinship with you through my father who had the same CCA last year. He was my moral compass when in times of uncertainty and doubt. His inspirational preamble during dinner made me a better person. Now, I draw strength from your experience and I am so fortunate to have crossed your path. God bless you and your family Mark!

      Thank you for your kind words, I really appreciate it. Just trying to find a silver lining to this cloud hanging over me and my family. I hear your thoughts about your father, my father has been such a source of strength for me during this time, as well as during other trying times during my life. So has my mother, they are always so postive and encouraging. Of course my wife is by my side and a rock as we navigate this journey, as are my kids, siblings and extended family and friends who are constantly checking in. I am very lucky to have such a tremendous support system.
      Take care,
      Mark

    Hello Mark!

    In many ways we do the same thing, how cool is that. Getting people what they need to continue living, with the least amount of red tape. It isn’t easy but it is my passion to help others and save lives. Mark, with you direct connections to patients you could so truly help us and cancer patients by getting the word out about this revolutionary, FDA approved new cancer treatment device.

    Even with FDA approval, we are encountering resistance to our technology in the medical community, for a myriad of reasons, I am sure you can figure out. None of the obstacles we are encountering have to do with the device and its astonishing abilities. It’s all about us NOT being “Big Pharma” and us wanting to save lives rather then pad the medical bill with big cost from protracted proceedures all at the patient’s expense.

    I would be happy to speak to you and/or any patients that you think may benefit from the device, if you have any questions regarding the device. Please visit our Fan Page on FB keyword IsoFlow and our website http://www.vasculardesigns and help us kick cancer!

    Right now, we are on a mission to save lives, and looking for patients to use the device, it is covered by most insurance companies and right now we are giving the device to the patients at no cost. If you know anyone who could benefit from the device please have them fill in the “contact us” Information on the website or FB me directly on the Fan Page through my profile, or just call (408) 484-90101 or (209) 981-1782
    Thanks Mark together I think you and I could really help save some lives.
