Experience the profound journey of a mother’s love, as she discovers healing and transformation through a promise fulfilled and a legacy built.

In April 2018, Nikki and Doug Mark’s perfectly healthy twelve-year-old-son Tommy went to sleep one night and never woke up. They’re still not exactly sure why. Devastated, Nikki embarked on an unconventional journey to heal her heart. Tommy loved soccer and wanted to play professionally, so to honor him, Nikki created a plan to transform neglected land in a Los Angeles public park into a state-of- the-art athletic field and share his spirit of play with others. After Tommy’s family, friends and the diverse soccer community of Los Angeles banded together to raise over $1,000,000 for the project, park neighbors resistant to change threatened to derail it and escalated a drama that mirrors the divisions within our nation. Throughout Nikki’s journey, a remarkable string of incidents convinced Nikki that her departed son was guiding her through the process. Ultimately it was Tommy’s enduring spirit and the beautiful game he loved that taught her how to navigate the many challenges along the way.
 
Nikki Mark founded the TM23 Foundation to honor her eldest son who was 12 years old when he unexpectedly passed away in 2018.  After a 20+ year career developing Los Angeles-based startups, Nikki embarked on an unconventional journey to heal her heart. She doesn’t wish her loss upon anyone, but she wishes for everyone all that she has learned from it.  Nikki’s “inspirational debut memoir,” is entitled Tommy’s Field: Love, Loss and the Goal of a Lifetime.
