About Mark's Money

Financial Assistance to persons with Down syndrome

Mark’s Money was designed to carry on Mark’s legacy by providing financial assistance to people with Down syndrome.  It was set-up in August 2006 shortly after Mark suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and passed away with his parents and siblings at his side.

Many individuals with a disability carry a financial burden because of additional healthcare costs, which just makes life even more difficult.  We wanted to make their life a little easier, so with the initial help of Knox County ARC, we started Mark’s Money.
