The Micah Marasch Family

Micah was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma behind his left eye in November of 2017. After spending many days in the hospital, sometimes weeks on end, the Marasch family says that the light was the Dance Marathon volunteers. Having DM volunteers at the hospital there to play with Micah always brightened their days and made it a bit easier to cope with everything that was going on. When Micah had been there everyday and didn’t want to talk to his family or his doctors, he would always perk up when he saw the DM volunteers come in. Micah finished treatment at the end of July 2018, and is now officially in remission! The Marasch family had a great time at DM24’s Big Event last year, and look forward to coming to more in the future!
