Marc has been a victim of the MK Ultra mind control program since he was four years old, for the next thirteen years of his life, untill he turned seventeen. MK Ultra was a program ran by the CIA during the 50s and 60s where people were subjected to high dosages of LSD, the electroshock torture and hypnosis. The goal was to turn him into an asset/assassin against his will. This happened during the so called Operation Paperclip. He refused to become an assassin and refused to kill, in spite of hypnosis. MK Ultra was put to a stop in 1972 but the victims never received any support with rehabilitation and no compensation either. He tried to lead a life with some kind of normality, and succeeded to an extent: he got married, got divorced, had 2 daughters, owned his own building construction company and later, was approached film director Robert Fitzpatrick, who mentored him for thirteen years, until Robert's sudden death in 2007, which was devastating to Marc.
Marc is also a talented script writer and wrote, among others, a tv-docudrama about his life in MK Ultra as well as a script for an action movie based on events in his life during the Iran Contra scandal that was connected with the project. We are also trying to get funding elsewhere in order to do these two projects.
Due to brain injuries obtained in the mind control program, he had 3 strokes that affected his ability to speak, read and write. He taught himself to speak again through singing and also traveled about two million miles while working on a tv show about the Native American culture, called The Brave Games . However, what was done to him over all those years took its toll on his health. What made things worse was that his partner fell ill with breast cancer and he spent almost everything he had to keep her alive for 8 years, ignoring his own health problems. She passed away three years ago. He made a plan to earn an extra income and started driving for Lyft, while writing scripts but he is now too ill to do even that.
My goal with the fundraising through Gogetfunding is to help with immediate medical bills and other urgent bills. He turns 65 in December and would then be liable to pay in on all medical bills within state healthcare in the US, where he lives. We all know what that means. He's got many brain related problems with his health due to electroshock torture, among others Chron's disease and anxiety disorder, caused by extreme stress. He has recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He needs a few operations because of torn ligaments in both hands and injuries in his spine, due to an attack on him, four years ago. On top of this, he is battling with prostate cancer. I can add more but I fear it would sound like I'm just adding things for dramatic effect, so I'll stop right now.
Mark is the bravest and most noble person I have ever met and has overcome so many obstacles with so much strength and dignity but he is at the end of his tether. He has been strong all these years, but now he needs help. Even from people who don't know him. Your donation might help to save his life and bring a little bit of right in this story of wrongs but time is running out fast and I am doing something about it by asking for your help.
ps. just to save time and frustration: it seems the payment method works better on a computer than on a smart phone.
