Helping America's Hardest Working Father

Everyone knows someone in their life who is a hard worker. The person that gets up every morning and goes to a job that may not be that great, that sticks with that job for more than ten, fifteen, twenty years. The person that gets home from that job, eats dinner, and then heads off to their second job, which pays less than the first, then comes home, gets a few hours of sleep, and wakes up the next morning to do it all over again. That's my uncle Mark.

Despite all his hard work, he always made time for his loving wife and three kids. He was always there for his family. No matter how tired he was, he always wore a smile. And in the early stages of his cancer diagnosis (which was caused by his work), that is what he continued to do.

My cousin Andy has created a video about my uncle and entered it into a contest for a chance to win $100,000. This is money that is desperately needed to help him with his cancer treatments. Please, take two minutes of your time to view the video and cast your vote, and know that in doing so, you are giving a family hope.
