Mikel had bad stomach pains and was vomiting frequently. His mom took him to the emergency room, and it was discovered that Mikel had an auto immune disease. He was also experiencing diabetic ketoacidosis, and his body was already showing signs of shutting down. Mikel was treated in the hospital and remained there for a week. After doing insulin shots for over a year, Mikel was switched over to an insulin pump, but he still needs to check his blood sugar levels regularly.
Mikel is kind, loves to help others, and is a little shy at times. When he feels comfortable, he’s also outgoing and silly. Mikel collects Pokemon cards, loves playing with Hot Wheels cars and has a passion for basketball. He wants to be a professional basketball player and greatly admires Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors. He’s inspired by his determination and that he never gives up.
