He’s now CEO of Blue Diamond International, Inc., and President of Marco Partners, Ltd. P.C., Grand Rapids, MI. His experience of family caregiving began after his father died. From 2005 his experience included consultation with the various physicians treating his mother. She’d lived with insulin dependent diabetes for 45 years, and with what for 9 years seemed to be Alzheimer's disease. She lived with Mark for 10 years and in hospice care for her last year.
