An Accessible Van for Little Marquito
Organized by: Susan Haas
Marquito is an adorable and remarkable 7 year-old from Virginia Beach, Virginia. He has multiple debilitating disabilities including kernicterus (a cerebral palsy-like condition from his newborn jaundice) and Down's Syndrome, yet this Super Kid is also a fighter who manages to work past seemingly impossible odds, and always with a smile. He is the absolute delight and love of his mom, Cecilia, who is raising Marquito alone. Marquito desperately needs an accessible van to not only drive him to his multiple doctor's appointments, but to allow this precious boy to get out and enjoy life. Please help our kernicterus community in helping us raise the funds to purchase a used accessible van for this sweet boy and his mommy!
