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 shown in November 2019. It is a testament to his love of life and his desire to live as independently as possible. On 26 April 2020 his brother Matthew will be running the London marathon in his honour and to raise money for the Noonan Syndrome Association.[/p][p]Please give generously to support families affected by this condition and help new research.[/p][p]Thank you[/p][p][br][/p]

Humbled and in tears after watching 24 hours in A&E. He enjoyed life to the fullest which most of us never achieve surrounded by such a loving family. My heart breaks for you. Xxx

So touched watching Mark’s story on 24 Hours in A&E. His positivity and smile was heartwarming to see and his parents were obviously devoted. I’m so sorry for their loss. Best of luck to Mark’s brother. I hope you raise lots of money in Marks’s memory
