Marc Elliot    

Live and Let Live - A talk on Tolerance

Marc Elliot knows the importance of embracing our differences. Born with a rare disease that left him with virtually no intestines, he faced extreme adversity and overcame tremendous odds from day one. But that was only the beginning of his remarkable journey. At age nine, he was diagnosed with a neurological disorder called Tourette’s Syndrome due to his incessant vocal and motor tics that interfered with every aspect of his life. It is estimated he ticced around 25 million times and every medical professional concluded his condition was uncontrollable and incurable. Not being one to bend to statistics, Marc completely overcame his Tourette’s in 2013, drawing from innovations in emotional intelligence, using only mind over body, and sheer will.
