Four years ago, music producer and DJ, Mark Wilkinson (Kidology Records), was diagnosed with an incurable Rheumatic disease that left him struggling to even stand. Doctors told him he would always have pain and would have to take prescribed medication for the rest of his life.
His life was “completely ruined” for over 18 months.
While in Ibiza last year, however, Mark made a decision that would prove pivotal. Determined to banish all toxins from his system, he started saying no to “alcohol, drugs, meat, dairy, wheat, sugar and caffeine”. This move to a healthy lifestyle paid remarkable dividends, bringing a full recovery and an eventual end to medication.
The highly regarded DJ describes the result on his Myspace page as “bang, no disease, amazing!”
Energised by his new lease of life and inspired to “put some positive vibes out there in the world”, vegetarian Mark is now aiming to raise £1 million pounds for charity. His chosen beneficiaries are MACS Childrens Charity, Breakthrough Cancer Research Charity and Shelter for the Homeless but he says that those who would like to help him reach his goal are welcome to donate to any charity that’s close to their heart.
Vegan Future is encouraging people to help Mark reach the million mark by making a donation to the following vegan hunger-relief charities:
