Primary Email:

     My name is Mark H. Wurst and I am a professional magician and family entertainer from New Jersey.  Since 1984 I have been providing amazing, interactive and fun programs for corporations, libraries, elementary schools and private events.

     In July of 1992, my father, Howard Wurst lost a battle
with cancer that was nearly 2 years long.  (Scroll down to read more of that story.)

     Now, as a full-time magician and family entertainer, I spend a lot of my time working with cancer charities and events, trying to raise money and awareness.

        Whether you have had cancer, or know someone who has, almost everyone has been touched by the disease in some way.  Now more than ever it is so important for all of us to do our part to help eradicate this disease.

Here's How You Can Join The Fight...

        Join my Team: Magic Fights Cancer at the Tom's River, NJ Relay For Life.  You don't have to attend the event to be a part of the experience.  (Although we'd love to meet you there!)  Click the link below to open up our official team page.

More On My Dad...       

        My dad was the original magician in our family and aside
from being the greatest dad I could ever imagine having,
he was my inspiration for becoming a full-time entertainer. 
(Even though he probably would've liked it if I became a doctor or lawyer instead.)

        During his illness, my mom and I cared for him at home and through the entire time the American Cancer Society was such a huge help and support for us.  We couldn't have done it without them. 

(My dad doing what he loved...Magic)

        They provided us with large amounts of very expensive medical supplies delivered to our house all free of charge.

        And there was always someone there to talk to on those days when the stress levels just got too high to hold it inside.

        Although I was only 19-20 years old, I did realize what a HUGE asset the American Cancer Society was to us as well as other families going through the same situation.

        I always wanted to find a way to help out and give something back, perhaps make life a little easier for another family suffering and grieving, but I just didn't know how to get involved.

The Phone Call That Changed Everything...

        Early in 2008, I was getting ready to publish my brand new magic book, "Magic Tricks To Fool Your Friends" when I got a call from the American Cancer Society asking me to be a part of the Tom's River, NJ 'Relay For Life' event.  This could not have been a coincidence!

        I was so excited about being part of the event that I told them about my new book and an idea I had to raise even more money and using magic to do it.

        My wife Marie and I decided right then that we were going to make it our personal mission to donate a portion of all book sales to help the American Cancer Society help others who are struggling and coping with this disease and hopefully one day find a cure so that no one else will have to know the pain of the loss of a loved one to cancer.

Friends" after a benefit show at the Stafford Library)

An Easy Way To Help A Great Cause!

        Copies of "Magic Tricks To Fool Your Friends!" are just $15.00 each and for every book that we sell on this site, we are donating $10.00 to the American Cancer Society.

        Each year we will present a check to the American Cancer Society at the Tom's River, New Jersey Relay For Life.  (We have since become full-time members of the committee for this annual event.)

        And that's where you come in.  You can help us and the American Cancer Society by purchasing copies of "Magic Tricks To Fool Your Friends!" for your friends and/or family members.  They make great gifts!!!  And everyone loves magic!!!
