Mark Johnson

Mark Johnson

Mark is one of my longtime friends from our University of Washington days in the late 1960's.

The picture of health just after turning 60 on June 7th, he is seen here just a few weeks later during our visit to the Murgo Winery in Sicily.

Soon after his visit to Catania he was diagnosed with tongue cancer which shocked all of us because the word "cancer" tends to always shock and also because Mark has never been a smoker.

I spoke with him this evening and am happy to report that after all his treatments, the results of a recent full body cancer scan proved negative.  In other words he is cancer free!!!

Tough guy, good guy... What a GREAT and BEAUTIFUL day today was.
