Hi! I'm Mark.

I love to laugh and tickles are my favorite!

I'm from Maryland, where I live with my Mom, Dad, sister Jillian and brother Luke.

I go to a special preschool for children with autism because I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder as a result of my SCN2A mutation. I also have a Central Nervous System disorder with Minor Neuromotor Abnormalities, Hyptonia, Mixed Receptive-Expressive Language disorder, sensory processing difficulties, gross motor delay, and Global Developmental Delay.

You'll find me swinging in my therapy swing, watching Daniel Tiger and pulling my play lawn mower everywhere!

Our goal is to find a cure!

Did you or your child just receive a new diagnosis of SCN2A? If so, please know you are not alone!
