I received word this afternoon that Mark is awake and recovering wonderfully after having a rod inserted into his left femur. The Doctor’s relayed to the family that “the surgery went great, the bone is extremely strong, and that there is no sign of disease.”

Now we recover. Mark will be in the hospital tonight and tomorrow for observation, and then he will return home for Thanksgiving and begin his quick recovery process. After the holiday Mark will return to the sidelines to coach up the Eagles in their final two games of the season. Then he will prepare his travel schedule for the “Awards Season” to follow.
Stay Strong. Stay Up.

Mark you are inspiration to many people and your amazing story of beating cancer has inspired me to value my life more. Have a great year, everyone knows you will and I hope to see as a high draft pick in the next few years.
