December 2002
Passed away
Treated At
SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital


Mark Thomas Wittman was a very active, healthy toddler. When very quickly his became very weak and would not eat. You can only imagine the devastation when we heard that this little one had cancer. Despite this diagnosis, Mark gave every ounce of courage and continued to be active even with an IV pole loaded with chemotherapy was attached to him. Mark has touched more people in the short time he was given on Earth than most of us in a lifetime.
Mark loved playing possum with his doctors and nurses when they came in to work on him. He loved Buzz Lightyear and Bob the Builder. He got mad when he could not palm three golf balls in the palm of his hand at the same time. Mark has 2 living siblings Blake now 14 and Katie now 12. We believe that Mark is spending his days in Heaven playing with any toy he wants and eating ice cream and Doritos. There is not a day that goes by still that we do not think of him, for he taught us to live each day as if it is our last.
