Change Kids’ Health with our friends at Marriott and Pepsi this summer!

When you stay at a Marriott hotel this summer, purchase a Pepsi product anywhere bottled beverages are sold in your hotel! From June 1 – August 31 participating locations will support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by contributing a portion of proceeds from every sale of these products.

Join Marriott and help kids get the care they need! Kids like JP, who could barely move when he was born, constantly sleeping and not eating regularly. At nine months old, doctors began to fear JP would never be able to walk and continued to search for answers. Just before his second birthday, JP underwent genetic testing and was diagnosed with Potocki-Lupski Syndrome (PTLS), a very rare health condition caused by a duplication of a gene in chromosome 17. PTLS caused many of the complications that JP was experiencing, including his developmental delays, feeding and speech difficulties, low muscle tone, among several other conditions caused by the syndrome.

Throughout his childhood, JP continued to receive care from many specialists, as JP’s family was determined to do everything they could to help him continue to grow stronger. Thanks to the early interventions, JP can walk, run, and dance with his seven siblings and continues to surpass all expectations. JP’s smile and laughter brings joy to everyone he meets. He is an avid sports fan and loves watching hockey, baseball, and soccer. JP is an athlete himself and is one of the top swimmers for the Special Olympics Central Florida team!
