On August 14, 2012, Marik was diagnosed with a form of bone cancer that is found primarily in children called Osteosarcoma. A little less than a month later he would undergo a procedure to have his right leg amputated. He's been making great progress ever since, continues with his chemotherapy, and lets nothing stand in his way. We love this "Little Man", as he's known. He has an infectious smile, the heart of a lion, and the spirit of a warrior as he battles in his fight to win against cancer. If you'd like to support Marik, please visit his Facebook page here.
