Good episode? Give it some love!
One of the Powerful talk ever I have listened in this episode, when I talked with Mark, he delivered his life story of his struggle with his Diabetes – 1 from age of 14. Despite of all the challenges and difficulties, hardship from own body to the embarrassing moments in middle of the society, lead him to the deep creek of the sorrowfulness. But his story turned around the courage, inspiration, desperate desire to live life, and overcome and transfer difficulties into the opportunities. While he got two organs from the donor and got new life, he got his first kid through IVF, it was not simple for him because it was failed before it 3 times. He has 2 children in his life and have a healthy life. But one moment please, after getting donation of kidney and pancreas, he started to do charity for the people for organ donation. He became the Ambassador of the NHS Blood and Transplant organization, government giant in UK, and inspired thousands for the organ donation. He puts that down to exercise. He started by walking a few blocks around his home and then went further around the housing estate where he lived and now does about 15 or 20 miles a month. He’s used that love of walking to raise money for charity too. In 2015 he did the Three Peaks Challenge for Kidney Care UK. But those are not his only walking achievements – he has climbed Ben Lomond in Scotland and completed the 88-mile-long Hadrian’s Wall walk in six days; he also climbed Mount Snowden two years after his transplant. All of his journeys, dinners and walks were for the charity events and he raised more than 3000 Euros from his last events.

His life inspiration story is for all of us to get motivated and enjoy our life’s beautiful moments even in tough time.
