Meet Marc Rayos, Alaska's Children's Miracle Network Champion...

 

After a year of feeling unwell, Marc was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a chronic inflammation of the large intestine. Most cases are treated with medication, but Marc’s situation was so severe his large intestine had to be removed.

Despite multiple surgeries and painful procedures, Marc is mature and open about his condition, even joking about his colostomy bag with siblings and friends. “I know my illness happened to me because I could handle it,” said Marc. “Other kids may not be able to handle it as well as me.”

On difficult days when Marc didn’t want to leave his bed, he could always be talked into visiting the pediatric playroom built and stocked using CMN Hospitals donations. Marc credits the video games there for getting him through each hospital stay. In addition to being an avid gamer, Marc also loves playing with Legos, reading and playing the piano.

Marc had such a good experience with The Children’s Hospital at Providence that he has now signed on to be Alaska’s Children’s Miracle Network champion! Many thanks to Marc and his family for sharing their experience to help raise awareness and funds for The Children’s Hospital at Providence!

Marc will be gaming with celebrity gamers Rick and Lisa Malambri on December 8th at 5 pm AKT/6pm PST to raise awareness and funds for The Children’s Hospital at Providence. Check out the live stream:
