Melanie writes of her oldest son's cancer journey. This was at the request of Marc a few months prior to his passing in 2011. Marc embraced a courageous battle, living with terminal brain cancer for 15 years. His life was one of optimism, strength, integrity & perseverance. He lived with the attitude of never giving up, yet living life as if each day was his last. Marc is Melanie's daily inspiration, she was honoured to be his mom and walk with him on a very difficult journey.
Episode 18 is dedicated to Marc Pouliot and his parents Melanie and Leo. Their message of inspiration and hope inspires us to“Seize the day!” but Marc would have us “Squeeze The Day” instead … Squeeze every ounce of awesome out of it that you can get!
Thank you Marc.
There was a beautiful surprise for Marc near the end of the interview process.
Quotes from friends as shared in Marc's autobiography
“Marc is a living legend and his living legacy is a testament to the world of what a passion for life and a will to live can do for us all.”
~ Phil de Guerre
"Marc was more than just a young man visiting Canuck Place Hospice for treatments or respite – he was a friend, to me, to the other staff, but especially to the other kids in house. No matter what he was going through, at times considerable, he was always concerned about others. Cool, charming, considerate and fun – Canuck Place was always better for having him there.
The courage with which he waged his battle was inspiring, I think of him often in times of challenge and suck it up and face it. The positivity which he exuded was contagious. The other kids looked up to Marc and wanted to be around him. A humble rock star, a cool role model, a shot of adrenalin, his optimism lit up the room."
~ Ross Hetherington Executive Director Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon
“Marc inspires people to become better in their everyday lives.”
“Marc taught me how to listen to my life.”
“Marc showed me how to ‘Take a sad song and make it better.’”
