Mark: "A Place that Makes Life Fun and Worth Living "

Mark B., age 39, resident for five years

“Before I came here, I was afraid that it would be boring…but it’s not!”

Each morning Mark wakes up into the reality of his life with Muscular Dystrophy and its advancing assault on his body and speech. But, fortunately he wakes up within the safe and secure walls of Champ Homes. The violence that he lived with before his arrival is only a distant, but, still painful, memory. Where there was once uncertainty and turmoil, there is now confidence and peace...and, purpose!

He co-captains the Champ Homes bowling team and, although he’ll tell  you that he is working on his scoring, he is proud to be leading a team that raised over $20,000 this year alone for the Champ Homes.

He spends part of each day at the Transitions Center of South Yarmouth where he socializes and finds joy in a variety of new experiences and challenges. Later in the day, back home with his friends, he may take a leisurely walk with them into Hyannis stopping along the way at the 7eleven for a tasty treat and some good conversation, always careful to be back by 11:00 P.M., curfew time. Observing house rules is important to Mark who strives to live an honest and decent life. On another evening, he may enjoy a quiet time at home, playing a competitive game of Monopoly with his best friend, Genesa.

Although he dreams of a day when he lives in a place of his own with a good friend, for now there is no other place that he would rather be. Champ Homes has become his home. His family. It is a place where he feels embraced by a community of people, residents and staff, who genuinely care about and love him. It is a place that makes life fun and worth living – maybe even for the very first time.
