Mark Cuban

Cancer victim’s dream wedding

21 May, 2014

Cuban pays for a dream wedding for Monica and Leroy Wilkinson of Watauga, Texas. Monica had multiple miscarriages and is undergoing chemotherapy treatment for Stage 4 ovarian cancer:

I got a call from his assistant, and she said Mark Cuban was going to help pay for our wedding. And I was completely floored. I thought it was a joke. Now we actually have those memories that can actually get us through. I can go back and have those pictures now and have a reason to smile. Because I got to feel special and it was all thanks to Mark Cuban.

Cuban admits that he would feel overwhelmed if he met everyone he anonymously helped.

If there is a scenario where the only problem is money, I try to fix that, [But] I’d die if I got emotionally connected.
