About Mark Garwood

Mark possessed an insatiable curiosity about life, a passion for living, and a loving and generous heart. Although he was diagnosed with type I diabetes as a teen, he never let it slow him down. His athletic abilities allowed him to excel in a wide variety of sports. Mark’s charm and persuasiveness were balanced by his genuine sincerity in all relationships. No matter what his circumstances might be, Mark was always available to help his friends.

Mark was assaulted during a pick-up basketball game while attending college in Orlando in 2009. He became addicted to pain medications as a result of his hospitalization, and his life spiraled out of control. Mark dropped out of school, alienated friends and family, and got into legal trouble. It was clear to Mark that he was on a destructive path, and he was determined to turn his life around.  Through detox, rehab, and participation in twelve-step programs, Mark began to achieve recovery.  He found spiritual and emotional support among his peers in a recovery residence.  Mark secured his dream job and was embarking on an exciting and productive career path.

Mark died from complications associated with his addiction and diabetes after a five-year battle with substance use disorder. In 2014, the Mark Garwood Foundation was founded to provide hope, change lives, and build a better future for those in recovery.
