Fun fact: Patrick does amateur stand-up comedy.
Patrick was born with Congenital Heart Disease, which means that his heart formed incorrectly. On paper, the doctors classify it as “complex cardiac anatomy” and the detailed medical description continues for four paragraphs.
What happened next is best described in Patrick’s own words:
"When I was eighteen years old, a top cardiologist told me that he and his team hoped that I would live to be 30 years old!
In time, I transformed this diagnosis from a death sentence to a call to action."
It took six long and difficult years to come to terms with the news that his life was more than half over. But accepting and embracing his own mortality left Patrick a changed person.
As an award-winning motivational speaker and author, Patrick shares his Mortality Mindset and shows audiences the way to a new and vibrant outlook on life. His first book What’s Your Expiry Date? Embrace Your Mortality – Live With Vitality has received widespread acclaim and has helped thousands of people to change their lives for the better.
Today he is 49 years old and lives in Montréal, Canada.
