Please Help Mark Howie & His Family


I have created this blog to let you know about an opportunity to help a fellow SYKES employee. 

Mark Howie, a SYKES employee in Newtown, PA recently suffered a massive heart attack.  Mark is currently in critical condition with machines keeping him alive.  He has, however, stabilized... and this is a good sign.  Every day that he remains stable increases the likelihood that he will wake up and his body will resume control.

Mark has been a SYKES and/or ICT Group employee for 7 years.  He is a valued member of the Data Services team in IT.   Any of you who have had the chance to work with Mark know what a positive person he is -- what a sense of humor and optimism he has.  He is a great person to work with and has been a very good friend to many.

Mark is just 38 years old.  He and and his wife, Dana, have four children between the ages of 9 and 19. 

Many of you who are aware of Mark's situation have asked how you can help.  As you can imagine, Mark's wife Dana is just going day-to-day right now, and it is hard for her to know exactly what will help.  But she and her family have affirmed that anything we can do is welcome. 
So please click the Donate button to give to Mark and his family.  All donations will go to Dana Howie, for her to use as she best sees fit.
