In Memory of Mark Lengyelfalusy

By Caz, Bella and Joel

Mark was a good man. In fact, one of the best. He was thoughtful, kind, honest, always present, incredibly smart and witty, a deep thinker and loved his family and friends fiercely.

Mark was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma in December 2020 and the Lifehouse has been caring for him since February 2021. Mark approached his 'brain cancer problem' as he did everything - head on with dogged determination. After some months of treatment and being relatively well, Mark needed a second operation due to unexpected growth of the cancer.  He was admitted as an inpatient at the very special Lifehouse on 4th October. Mark deteriorated quickly and was cared for by multiple incredible staff across the Lifehouse, with the palliative care team carrying him gently and with dignity until the very end.  Mark peacefully passed away on 28th October 2021.

Mark made a point of living his life well and the Lifehouse was such a huge part of enabling him to die well also. We will be forever grateful to the nurses, doctors, and support staff at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse for the dedicated care, support and kindness shown to Mark and our family, especially when Mark passed away – giving us all of the time, space and support we needed.

To honour Mark’s life, and in lieu of flowers, please show your support for a cause that has impacted all of our lives, by donating generously.

 

100% of the funds raised go back into patient care, funding life-changing research and getting us closer to a future free from cancer.

I am heartened to know that Mark had excellent professional care at the end of his life, because, without a doubt, I know his family would've while heartedly and tenaciously been there for him.
