On Butterflies of Wisdom today (Wednesday, October 4, 2017),
Best-Selling Author, Win C welcomes Mark Black. Mark is a
Heart and Double-Lung Transplant Recipient – turned – 4-Time
Marathon Runner, Author, Coach, and Speaker. 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 kilometers 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 six 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 children Emma and Matteo. To
