Translated into five languages, he has literally touched people worldwide. Marshall was also featured on CNN, Time Magazine, and People magazine. Today, at age thirty, Marshall continues to live with his parents Troy and Charlie Ball in Asheville, North Carolina, where his family moved in an effort to prolong his life. Marshall has never been in better health and continues to write with the goal of teaching. He is working on creating a public parkland that will unite words, art, and music in one setting called Tacirring. In recent years, Marshall has become close friends with Chris Martin, who says “Kiss of God . . . changed my life and I’m sure it will change yours too. He is responsible for the turn around in our attitude about life.”
