Mark doesn’t just teach resilience; he embodies it.

Born with a life-threatening heart defect, he underwent two open-heart surgeries before the age of one. Twenty-two years later, he survived an extremely dangerous heart and double-lung transplant.

After that, Mark became the first man in history to run a marathon with someone else’s heart and lungs. Then he did it 3 more times.

Mark was not expected to live a long life – and since receiving his second chance, he hasn’t wasted a second.

The author of “Live Life from the Heart”, Mark travels the globe as an author, speaker, and coach, spreading his unbelievable story of perseverance and hope to more than 150,000 people across North America.

Using his own personal experience living under the threat of death, Mark demonstrates the power of channelling change and adversity into a catalyst for innovation and growth.

After meeting the love of his life, Marise, the two were married, and they now live in Moncton, New Brunswick with their 3 healthy children, Emma, Mateo, and Caleb.
