More Info

My best friend Marcus Bennett was an angelic figure that God placed on this earth as a human being on June 20, 1989 in Phenix City, AL. He was a very bright young man, what he lacked in stature, he compensated for with his heart and love. Marcus was one of the funniest, caring, and biggest dreamers to grace this earth. When Marcus was a child, he was diagnosed with Diabetes and from that diagnosis he became the strongest person I knew as a child and teenager.

The most remarkable thing about Marcus’s suffering with Diabetes was that you would never know because he kept a smile and zest for life that was unmatched. I was his best friend as teenagers and I became a strong individual by the strength that I saw Marcus exemplify. In April of 2010, our Heavenly Father called his angel back home to continue his wonderful works from the heavenly realms. Now Marcus is making everyone there smile and laugh. I promised Marcus that I would live my life as he did and live out his dreams for him to the best of my abilities. Lil Marcus just represents one of millions of people who have or continue to suffer from Diabetes in this world. Continuing to shed light on a dark complex like Diabetes is the only way we can allow future people like Marcus to accomplish their dreams and not have them cut short or hindered. I will be honoring Lil Marcus with an annual “Lil Marcus” Weekend with the first being this summer on June 21st-23rd for his 30th birthday. Honoring my best friend is a honor in itself and if you feel inspired or compellled in any way from Lil Marcus’s story, please donate what’s on your heart so we can make this weekend a weekend to honor millions of others. 

Thank you very much!
