Marc’s wife said,
“So many people have reached out to us in this past year to support. It’s been humbling.”
“Marc is an amazingly strong man and he wants to continue the battle. So do I and our boys [Spencer and Presley]. Any parent would be so proud of their kids if you could see how Spencer and Presley are living with this. Their kindness, quick to action, even quicker to forgive when we get snappy that they have displayed is incredible.”
A GoFundMe page had been set up for Marc. The page’s creator Kim Parks wrote,
“Marc lost his job along with his company-paid insurance plan and has been actively pursuing new employment. Facing this medical crisis, Marc is clearly unable to gain employment at this time.”
“His wife, Kaki, is an elementary school teacher which is the most admirable profession but sadly also very underpaid. Given the current crisis situation they are in, Kaki has had to take FMLA time off of work to navigate all of the doctor appointments, treatments, and more. Therefore, her salary is even more reduced during this period.”
