In October 2016, 18-year-old Marc had an infected hair follicle and his mom knew something was not right. After several tests and hospital visits, Marc was referred to specialists at CHRISTUS Children’s. Doctors performed a biopsy and learned Marc had Leukemia.
Marc underwent several rounds of chemotherapy, spinal taps, and radiation therapy over 3.5 years and completed his chemotherapy in January 2020. Marc tries to stay positive and plans to start sharing his story with the community with hopes of helping others in the fight against cancer.
