At the age of nine, Marc was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes him to make involuntary motor and vocal tics. As Marc grew older, his tics manifested in many different ways, from “ticcing” inappropriate words to blurting out random noises, including barking like a dog and chomping his teeth. Now at the age of 26, Marc has found a way to use his own story, his triumph over handicaps, as a way of helping individuals around the world find their own path to tolerance—for themselves and others.
