Presented by Mr. Marc Mulligan,
A very successful banker, Marc’s health was at a catastrophically low level when, one day, he collapsed on the way home from the office, striking his head on the ground . The resulting concussion left him on sick leave for the next two years. Two years of vertigo, daily headaches, exhaustion, hearing sensitivity, memory loss, goldfish-level of mental focus and vestibular imbalance. During those two years Marc was outside his comfort zone 24/7. We’re very excited to hear his story!
