Born with a life-threatening heart defect, Mark underwent two open-heart surgeries before the age of one. He battled his condition and it's limitations for twenty-two years quite successfully, but at 23 yrs old, Mark was suddenly faced with the biggest challenge of his life. His doctor informed him that his heart was failing badly and that without a rare and dangerous heart and double-lung transplant, he would not likely see his 25th birthday.

In October 2001, Mark moved thousands of kilometres from home and was put on the transplant waiting list. After just four months on the list, Mark's condition grew worse and he was placed in the hospital where he lived, waiting for a miracle, for 6 months.

Finally, by the grace of God, on September 7th, 2002, after almost a year on the list, Mark received a second chance at life: a life-saving Heart & Double-Lung Transplant.

Since receiving his second chance at life Mark hasn't wasted a moment. He has now impacted the lives of more than 100,000 in more than 350 presentations across North America with his truly unique story and powerful life lessons that help his audience members live life with passion and purpose.

Mark lives in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada where he spends as much time as possible with the most important people in his life; his wife Marise and their two children..
