Marcel was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, May 2016. Just on June 21st he turned five years old. Chemotherapy was no longer effective and the cancer in his body spread extremly fast. Marcel went to heaven on the morning of July 27, 2017.
AML is an aggressive form of cancer, starts in the bone marrow and quickly spreads into the blood.
Marcel's treatment began immediately after diagnosis. He endured multiple months of treatment which included: blood transfusions, pokes, chemotherapy etc.
Little Marcel did not understand cancer. He beleived the lines inside his body (for medication) and iv fluids flowing constantly were there because he was becoming a Super Hero. He was a happy kid and never complained about his treatment.
He showed strength and courage to his loved ones and those around him. He will never be forgotten.
