Mark Pilgrim The Speaker...
"From 25…75" … What is your dream.
Mark Pilgrim is one of the most recognised television and radio personalities in South Africa. He has spent the past 12 years in broadcasting, presenting on 5FM and Highveld Stereo as well as hosting South Africa's most watched television show: BIG BROTHER - but what many people do not know is that he is also a cancer survivor.
At the age of 18 Mark was diagnosed with testicular cancer, which spread to his lungs and kidneys.
Mark's inspirational story is anecdotal and humorous and reveals how cancer persuaded him to give up his training as a chartered accountant and follow his dream of being on radio. His story is a personal and poignant account of his journey, motivating anyone listening to follow their dreams, whether it is in the workplace or in their personal lives.
He also uses the public platform to educate both young and old on the importance of checking themselves for any physical abnormalities and well as, should the disease affect you, how to find the strength to overcome it.
