On 26 September 2018, Mark's wife was diagnosed with AML leukemia and was admitted to hospital enduring 12 months of chemo. She got to the stage she was well enough for a bone marrow transplant in May 2019 but suffered multiple infections keeping her in hospital and ICU for the most of late 2019.
Sadly Amanda, aged 44 years, passed away on 28th December leaving behind her hubby and two beautiful children aged 9 and 11.
The extension is now water-tight for the approaching winter and has taken a lot of added pressure off Mark who thanked CEO, Lisa Tuersley stating that "the recommendation of the product and choice of colour is excellent and the tradesman was an absolute gentleman.
