Story

[p]Mark was a very special young man. He was born with a genetic condition called Noonan Syndrome and during his 33 years dealt with a variety of medical issues including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, epilepsy and severe lymphoedema. He lived life to the full living as independently as possible, making a positive impact on every person he met and never ever complaining. He was funny, always smiling and bringing joy into every room he entered. He passed away on 29 April 2019 after being overwhelmed by his medical problems but he will never ever be forgotten by his family, his friends and everyone he met.[/p][p]Before he passed Mark took part in a "24 hours in A&E" programme on Channel 4 which will be repeated on More 4 on Friday 24 July at 12.20am. It is a testament to his love of life and his desire to live as independently as possible. When the 2020 London marathon takes place in October, his brother Matthew will be running in his honour and to raise money for the Noonan Syndrome Association.[/p][p]Please give generously to support families affected by this complex condition and help new research.[/p][p]Thank you[/p][p][br][/p]

I just watched 24hrs in A&E in Australia. I was truly moved by Mark's story, what a wonderful person with a beautiful smile. His parents are exceptional people and this episode really touched our hearts. All the best to the family.

We watched Marks plight on 24 hours in A & E. His ability to smile in the face of adversity made him a truly exceptional person who I think of often. I wish his family well. Xxxx
