Marc Owens Medical Fund

Organisation ID: MYC0062

Marc was 17 years of age when diagnosed with an exceedingly rare & aggressive stage IV soft tissue sarcoma in September 2010. Prior to diagnosis he was a typical healthy teenager, who had absoutely no idea he might be ill. Marc has bourne his illness with dignity, fortitude whilst maintaining his wicked sense of humour. Initially treated by Prof. Carney, Mater Hospital, Dublin, he is now being treated at MD Anderson CC, Houston, Texas under the care of Prof. Anderson & Hayes-Jordan.

Marc faces challenges & choices few persons are ever confronted with in their lifetime. On Thursday February 10th, Marc underwent an 18 hour life saving surgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas.
