Episode 5: Dr. Ben Marcus

Dr. Ben Marcus went into medicine because he feared wasting his life. After navigating this field that he had stumbled into, he is now the director of facial plastic surgery at the University of Wisconsin, as well as a professor for the department of surgery. But, his story is far more complicated than that. Ben was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2016. As he faced what he thought could be the last months of his life, time slowed down. He realized that living in the moment isn’t about lofty goals, that being joyful is the outward sign of being grateful, and that he wanted to climb to Mount Everest base camp. He shares the perspective this experience gave him, what he learned while facing his multiple myeloma, and how he finds himself more happier than ever despite this disease.
