Marc's Story

Marky was diagnosed with common variable immunodeficiency just before his second birthday after a lifetime of major infections and hospitalizations. He receives immunoglobulin infusions through IVIG every 3 weeks through his mediport essentially replacing the immune system that his body doesn't produce on his own. These infusions will be lifelong. These being their own problems with major side effects but the pros certainly outweigh the cons. You can follow his hashtag #markysmission to see updates or if you have any other questions. He is unable to go to school due to his medical condition as it is an unsafe environment for him. We currently do virtual school which is a struggle within itself. Thankfully his doctors have cleared him to play baseball since it is outside. It has become his absolute passion and love. When his health allows, he is playing on a 10 and under baseball travel team at the age of 7. It has given him a little bit of normalcy in his difficult life.
