Press Release from Agio Publishing:
"Gregory Marchand's survival from a heart attack in 1998 was considered miraculous - his heart was without a pulse for 20 minutes after he collapsed at the finish line of an 8K road race near Victoria, BC. In his inspiring new book, Open Heart Runner: searching for meaning after my heart stopped (Agio 2012), Marchand recounts how he struggled to recover from surgery and brain injury, while wrestling with questions about why he didn't die.
