The Illustrious South African Mark (Beukes) needs your help! He was recently diagnosed with MDS, (pre-leukemia) now treated as Leukemia and will need a Bone Marrow Transplant. We have rallied together to get him the best care. He is currently at Sloan Kettering and is as of Friday undergoing in-patient chemo until they schedule a bone marrow transplant. (Most likely in July) Yes, this is very serious: but it can be cured with a successful bone marrow transplant and a lot of will power. A bone marrow transplant is expensive and has a long recovery period (usually a full year) which is why we have created this fund to raise money and support to help cover some of his medical treatment and living expenses. We are grateful to everyone who has risen to the demands, and especially to Mark for evolving through this experience to be able to accept our love and assistance. Donate if you can and regardless please send Mark persistent & sustained good thoughts, good vibes and epic laser-focused rays of Unicorn light!

Latest Update

Happy Birthday Mark!!! This is a very special Birthday and Luna New Year for Mark. He is now 153 days post "transplant" and doing well. His doctors are very happy with his progress so much so that he is now an outpatient that only has to go to the hospital for bi-weekly checkups. He is putting on weight, has started physical therapy and his hair is growing back! It's a long recovery process but he is back and getting stronger every day. Thanks for everyone's continued support and ongoing well wishes.

Awesome news, Marki-poo! Stay strong and keep getting stronger! Lots of luv from Italia!

Mark had his bone marrow transplant and was released as an out-patient 3 wks later. The recovery for the transplant is long and the first 100 days are crucial. The photo accompanying this post was taken by Nick on the day Mark was released after 123 days in hospital. A rainbow welcoming him back! He still has to go back into hospital weekly for tests and transfusions. He can only eat home cooked meals and can be seen shuffling around Soho and Chinatown with a face mask, latex gloves (not kidding) and headphones. Please continue to send the love and support. Today he is on day 31 post transplant and is very happy to be out of his 20's!

Stay strong bro!

After 78 days in hospital Mark was released as an outpatient to mentally prepare for his up coming bone marrow transplant. On Wednesday August 23, 2016 he will be readmitted (inpatient) to receive a final round of induction chemo prior to his bone marrow transplant which is scheduled for Tuesday August 30TH, 2016. Depending on his recovery he will be released in 6-8 weeks. Mark has received so much support and love from everyone that its hard to convey in an update. Here is one story: Last night Max and Shauna arrived at Mark’s apartment carrying A Thousand Origami Cranes. As it sounds its a 1000 origami cranes meticulously crafted by many friends each containing a special note. As Japanese legend has it, anyone who receives Thousand Origami Cranes, will be granted a wish by the Gods or recovery from illness. We hope he gets both! Keep those good vibrations coming.

Mark's 1ST round of chemo as an in-patient at Sloan Kettering (4wks) was not successful.  His doctors have started him 06/15 on a 2ND round at Sloan Kettering (4wks) on the same chemo but on a much, much, stronger dose. Despite the challenges & elevated fatigue he is in good spirits. The brave son-of-a-gun & can be found most days with friends on the terrace/rec-room with his pre-emptive buzz cut. Note If you plan on visiting please make sure you are not sick (compromised immune system). If you do visit, there's a chance you won't get to see him if he's not up for it. Texting prior is advisable. He can only have cooked food. No raw or unpasteurized dairy products. Mark has a long road ahead of him. We are trying to get as much money as possible to help him cover co-payments, deductibles, etc. on top of his living expenses as it is unsure when he will be able to go back to work. Thanks to all the fine folks from around the globe that have supported our dear friend so far!
