In this episode we jump straight to the end, or nearly. Mark Smith was dead for a few minutes before he was revived and went onto thrive as a competitive bodybuilder, strongman and latterly footballer. Standing in front of an audience in nothing but your Speedos takes some doing, but when you understand that it was all part of Mark’s recovery from a freak accident, it becomes a powerful metaphor for change and courage.
Mark describes the circumstances around the accident in vivid, often humorous detail and the struggles he has conquered as an amputee since. This is an honest and emotional account of his journey to recovery and the people that have made it possible.
But what next for this incredible person? Well, with a story like his and a mission to serve as many people as possible, adding the title of published author seems like the logical next step for this man who is now conquering every challenge put his way!
