Mark’s ‘other’ story
In July 1997, whilst living and working in Australia, Mark had one of those defining moments.
Whilst sat in front of a haemotologist, he asked the specialist (where he’d been rushed to that day), whether he was going to live or die. The specialist answered, “I don’t know”.
At the age of 27, he was diagnosed with the rare, Hairycell Leukaemia, which typically affects 60 year olds and upwards. After being part of a clinical trial, Mark has been in complete remission for 15 years.
The full story he wrote on his 40th birthday, is here.
He chatted about it on a podcast here.
