Mark is literally one of those people who would give you the shirt off his back. As a former volunteer Langford firefighter, Mark and his wife Dana, are very well known to many in the community. This familiarity has also been due to their commitment to volunteer work, physical participation in local events, (in addition to monetary contributions) and their constant willingness to lend their helping hands.


If you already know Mark, you know that he has already been living with Kidney Disease, and now Renal Failure for over 2.5 (almost 3) years. This has been especially difficult for Mark, Dana and their family to manage, particularly because Mark has had additional health problems arise on top of his low kidney function, requiring many surprise, but necessary surgeries/hospital stays and dialysis changes.

My proposal for Mark, Dana and their family is to raise enough money to help them afford Mark's potential stay in Vancouver, where his kidney transplant and aftercare would take place. 


Generally, the medically related costs for the kidney transplant itself are covered by the BC provincial health plan, but non-medical costs, such as travel expenses, accommodation, and meals etc., are not. Given Mark would be in Vancouver for 3 months, these costs can really add up! In this case, up to an estimated $8,000.00.

Your generous donation to our fundraising campaign can help us reach our goal of $8,000.00 for Mark and his family during his stay. 

Any funds that are not used directly, or are "left over" for Mark's stay in Vancouver & for his care, will be donated to the local Victoria Branch of the Kidney Foundation of Canada, to help others who may be in need.

~IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Due to the fact that this fundraiser is for an individual and is not affiliated with a registered charity, not-for-profit company or association, we regret we are NOT able to provide an offical tax receipt for income tax purposes.~

Many thanks for all of your contributions! The Cunningham Family is extremely grateful for your support.
