MARC HUTCHISON'S LIFE STORY

A son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend.  A very special person in many peoples lives.

 This is all too short a life story ..............................

 Marc was first diagnosed with asthma at around 4yrs of age. Night coughs, colds leading to chest infections, allergies and the cold weather could all trigger an attack.

Swimming in his early years helped Marc to exercise his lungs, and focus on breathing techniques, football was always a passion both as a participant and a supporter. Although Marc had frequent attacks and was only ever hospitalised once, he didn't sit around and feel sorry for himself , he was right in the heart of whatever he did and gave it his all.

On leaving shcool Marc joined the Shetland Recreational Trust as a trainee working at the North Mainland Leisure Centre in Brae, this he loved as he could work both "dry side as a recrational assistant and poolside as a lifeguard.

 Marc's "releiver" inhaler was in constant use, whilst his "preventative" & "long acting" inhalers were only taken if he remembered to do so or was feeling particularly bad. Smoking aggravated his symptoms & although he tried to give up on several occations this remained an ongoing issue.

Marc didn't realise the severity of his asthma or just how unmanaged it was becoming, he had learned to live life thinking that this was the best he could feel, and not for one minute did he think the asthma would kill him. He loved life and lived it to the full.
