Micheal was preparing to present as a finalist in the science fair when an intense pain sent him to Children’s National for an emergency appendectomy. Children’s National doctors and nurses eased their nerves as Micheal was quickly rushed into surgery. Following a successful surgery, Micheal, now 14, is back doing what he loves – acting, playing chess, and playing basketball, baseball, football, and soccer. He was also a Miracle Kid judge our very first Terp Thon Showcase! Micheal likes to stay active and has always been involved in many things; he is all about spreading positivity and inspiring others.
