Marc, you remain in our thoughts and prayers

We recently learned Marc Orchant, a man who wears many hats, including friend of Mindjet, was rushed to the hospital on Sunday 12/3 having experienced a massive coronary.

I first met Marc in person earlier this year at Mindjet’s Customer Summit and found him to be as amazingly passionate and inspirational as I’d come to see through our virtual communications on technology partnership ideas.

We continue to keep Marc and his family in our thoughts and prayers as we track his progress and hope for his full recovery. The announcement of Marc’s condition has touched so many people across the globe, as noted by the outpouring of compassion seen here. We know many of you who read this blog also call Marc a friend and we want to make sure you have the link to the blog providing the latest news on Marc’s condition. Thank you all for your support.

    I called the hospital for an update, and spoke with Ed, Marc’s brother from the East Coast. He said that it is still very touch and go. There has been some physiological improvement, some organs have stabilized, but Marc has still not yet regained consciousness. As such, they still have no update on brain functioning, or how long he was without oxygen. He has opened his eyes a few times today and tracked light. Ed and all the family who are there are hopeful that every hour brings improvement. Someone is with him all the time, and they are looking forward to him opening his eyes and saying, “so what’s happening?”.

    Marc’s iPhone is in his pocket, playing the music that he loves constantly.

    The family is grateful for the worldwide support network.
