Mark and Kristen Wallace

Mark and Kristen Wallace"Kristen and I have lived in the Deerfield Valley for 30 years. In that time, we raised our children, owned three businesses, and volunteered for every organization we could. We have a keen interest in paying it forward, especially as grateful SVMC patients. Our most serious visits to the medical center were for cancer treatment—for both of us. The unfortunate part was that we both had cancer; the fortunate part was that we were treated at SVMC. Neither of us will forget the manner in which we were treated. Words that come to mind are thoughtfulness, compassion, hope, optimism, and trust. We trust SVMC with our lives, and that is why we have put SVMC in our will.”
